"Bluegrass Cafe" playlist - 12/27/2009

For our last BG Cafe of 2009, our goal was to play a whole lot of the great BG music that was released in 2009. Approximately 110 new BG CDs were received and added to our collection at WHUS over the past year. Time constraints (even with 5 broadcast hours for the show) didn't allow us to play a song from each new CD, but we did manage to make more than half of the tunes we played new releases from 2009. It has been a mighty fine year for BG music, and we're happy to have been able to bring you so much great music each week.

While the focus was on the 2009 releases, we still put two more classic country singers in the spotlight, and played a combination of them singing their own songs along with several BG remakes of tunes from their respective song catalogs. This time around, we featured two gentlemen who first found great success on the country charts in the 1950s, who are both members of the Country Music Hall of Fame, and who both were married to June Carter at one point in their lives. The singers: Carl Smith and Johnny Cash. For me, it's always enjoyable to combine the original country singers with BG covers of some of their tunes -- hope you liked it, too.

Jim & Marti will be with you to welcome in 2010 on the BG Cafe next Sunday. Start your year off right with some great BG music.

Happy New Year!!
