Show #144 – 2015 and beyond

Sorry folks, due to unforseen circumstances, we both were unable to make it to the show scheduled to air on January 1.  And since starting Bakersfield & Beyond, we’ve always done a top ten show for the first show of the new year.  However, in our mind, all the songs we play are top ten.  Can you fit 100 songs in the space of your top ten?  We think you can so we simply played some of our favorites letting the current song dictate the following song.  Our favorite way to create a show.  Here’s the playlist and some youtube clips.  We hope you all have a fabulous 2015 and beyond!

But, if we did have a favorite for 2015, it would have to be Sturgill Simpson.  He came out with a new record this year and knocked it clean out of the park.  It was really great to see the success he achieved this past year and we wish him continued success for a long time to come.
