Introducing... Nick Shoulders

Bluegrass-y guy from Arkansas with a distinctly infectious charm. Plus he yodels. And whistles.

Descriptions don't do the guy justice. Just listen and enjoy:

Nick Shoulders - Tiny Desk Submission 2020 - 'Too Old to Dream' [www.youtube.com]

Nick Shoulders - Hanks Checkout Line *official video* [www.youtube.com]

Nick Shoulders - “Crying” (Roy Orbison cover) *live* from the Ozark Wild [www.youtube.com]



Lie to me if you must, but don't lie to me and insult my intelligence in the same sentence.

Stop and think about this: If you're able to shout the words "I CAN'T BREATHE!!!" at considerable volume, then you have just proven to anyone listening that you can indeed breathe.

I really love bluegrass and really hate country...

I'm conflicted listening to his music :-)

but it would probably grow on me if I give it a chance

I could play 'Checkout Line' on Hillbilly at Harvard, except Harvard in a fit of virus panic has banned all but a few undergraduates from the building where WHRB has its studios, so I'm exiled and HAH is pre-recorded or pre-empted.

I get you. I grew up on "old school", make-you-feel-guilty-when-you-haven't-even-done-anything Country and if I don't actively like it, I do at least have a benign familiarity with it whereas most "modern" Country just sounds like bad rockabilly to me. Bluegrass, on the other hand, I've only recently developed an interest in and quite like so far.

With that in mind, perhaps you'll appreciate this video of a much less obscure but much more conventionally Bluegrass performer:

Billy Strings - "Dust In A Baggie" | Live at the Opry [www.youtube.com]
