An evening with J.P. Harris

We’ve enjoyed the album I’ll Keep Calling by J.P. Harris & The Tough Choices since it first arrived at the station last year.  He and the band have a great, pure, easy to listen sound.  They play the kind of country music that people who say they don’t like country music will say “well, I don’t like country music, but I like that!”

Since J.P. flew out for a quick trip, he didn’t bring his guitar, but luckily Amanda had her guitar (that she won at last year’s Deke Dickerson Guitar Geek Festival) on hand.  We were treated to some in studio live music – a couple of tracks from last year’s album and one new, not yet recorded number that made its radio debut right here on KWMR.

And to top it all off, J.P. is a heck of a nice guy and didn’t cuss once on air.  And that means a whole lot.  So, here’s the playlist and some youtube clips.  Thanks for listening.
