Did you know that Jerry Chestnut wrote "Good Year For the Roses"? He might have written it but it was made famous by the insanely awesome George Jones. I've always loved this song, I love George Jones' voice, we grew up on a pretty steady diet of Country AND Western music in our house.
When I was a teenager, I discovered Elvis Costello and the Attractions. Around the time I started listening to them, Almost Blue was released. I think that their version of "Good Year For the Roses" is incredible.
The whole of Almost Blue is incredible. After you've listened to this, treat yourself and go check out the rest of the record xo
