Tift Merritt – Cadillac

This week’s Top Tune is a vintage, unreleased Tift Merritt track that happens to be one of our faves.

“It was part of our very first set of band songs and I played telecaster on it in the clubs.” remembers Tift. “I can remember writing it in the farmhouse where I lived out in the country with my dog. I had a piano painted red. I did not have a Cadillac, but I can remember the feeling of wanting to be someone’s race car. I like that idea”.

There’s one thing for sure, Tift Merritt is a cruiser. When she’s not on tour in support of her 5th critically acclaimed and most recent studio album, Traveling Alone (and its’ deluxe box set companion, Traveling Alone Deluxe Edition) you might catch her as a featured artist with classical pianist Simone Dinnerstein performing compositions from their intriguing lp, Night or often sharing a stage with Andrew Bird to boot.

Tift will be heading out on her first tour of Australia in April supporting Jason Isbell and will appear tonight at City Winery NYC w/Steve Earle. You can also catch her at Lincoln Center with Mary Chapin Carpenter & The New York Philharmonic on 2/28 & 3/1. For more tour dates and info click HERE.

Rosanne Cash w/ Steve Earle – I’ll Change For You

I’ll change for you
I’ll change for you
I’ll change for you
I’ll turn night into day

A personal favorite from Rosanne’s acclaimed Rules of Travel cd… the unconventional conversational vocal between Rosanne and Steve Earle makes for one of the best modern duets committed to wax. ┬áThe song hits you with both an intimacy and an urgency as the two wrap their unmistakable vocals around Rosanne’s lyrics.

‘Cause everything reminds me of you
baby’s feet, an old man’s smile
A silent scream, a lover’s cry
Till I can’t do nothing
But change for you…

Here’s a live performance of the tune from an Austin City Limits performance.
