Another musical interlude

Austin-based James McMurtry links from his MySpace page to a free download of his latest political work, "God Bless America." If you aren't familiar with McMurtry, or only know him from "Choctaw Bingo," you might be worried about the title of this song. Don't be. This is a followup to his 2004 song We Can't Make It Here, and the two comprise some of the most potent political protest music in recent years. This isn't a sappy Nashville anthem. It's of that genre perhaps best known as "Music Nashville Hates And Clear Channel Will Never Play;" or more succinctly, "Good Music." Remember, those folks in Texas have been under Shrub and the Oilmen's thumbs even longer than the rest of us.
