I know it’s supposed to be type tuesday today, but when I saw The Little Willies new album on NPR’s First Listen, I just couldn’t resist doing a first draw post! This album is all classic country covers from folks like Loretta Lynn, Johnny Cash, etc. Sung by Richard Julien and Norah Jones. My heritage is rich with country music. One side of my family is trailer trash (I say that in the most loving way) and the other side is ranchers and cowboys. So really, there was no way for me to get away from old school country music growing up. My dad has been singing these songs my whole life. The arrangements are so fun and I just love the album. It makes me want to sing country!
Here’s the drawing I made while listening and singing along. I used watercolor pencils.
