My iPod is a big ol' mess. It has everything from metal to blues to old gospel recordings by Elvis. I put it on shuffle each day on my way to and from work, and I never know what's going to pop up. Sometimes The Rolling Stones follow CeCe Wynans. Amy Winehouse sits next to ABBA, and once in a while, Jerry Lee Lewis gets a little Middle Aged Crazy on there. It's a real potpurri of stuff, and I like it all, fairly loud.
My favorite artist to shuffle up so far this week is Maura O'Connell, an Irish folk singer based in Nashville, who puts a bluesy contemporary twist on folk. I first discovered her by stumbling onto one of her CD's in Sissy's stuff that we sorted through after Sissy's death. I love Maura. And let's just say that if we sang this kind of music at church, I'd never be still on Sunday mornin's.
