Happy Monday everyone and welcome back to Music Monday! Let's share some songs we've been enjoying lately! If you would like to play and I really hope you do, please see the rules and link up below.
Every Monday share one or two of songs you've been enjoying lately. It doesn't have to be a specific genre, new, or one of your favorites - just something you'd like to share with others.

This week I'm spotlighting songs by J.D. Crowe and the New South and Tony Rice. Tony Rice really got started with The New South (also featuring greats like Ricky Skaggs, Jerry Douglas, and Bobby Slone) before he became a solo artist. The J.D. Crowe and the New South song "Old Home Place" (1975) is easily one of my favorites and it showcases Tony's vocals and his guitar skills, and of course the brilliance of the other performers, as well. "Jerusalem Ridge" (1983) is one of my favorites from his solo career - and one of my all time favorite instrumentals.
