What’s On Your iPod? Andy Ham of Madd Hoss Jackson
This time around on "What's On You iPod?" we get into the mind and the playlist of Madd Hoss Jackson singer, guitar player and fiddle player, Andy Ham.
So Andy tell us, what's on your iPod right now?
Ah, Music. It can put me in a mood, or pull me out of one, sometimes without warning. I have a large variety of artists that I go to, but I will try to narrow it down.
1. Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers: Formerly “The Refreshments” (Banditos). Independent rock and roll from Tempe, AZ. Check them out! New CD is called “The Independent” and my favorite song from this album is called “California Breakdown”… something about bus issues draws me in.
2. Eric Church: The Outsiders CD, I like the whole CD for a running soundtrack, but the first time I heard “Roller Coaster” I was heading down a hill with the wind in my face… that feeling comes back every time I hear that song. Listening to my kids sing “Talladega” is pretty cool too!
3. Billy Joel Greatest Hits: So much attitude in “Big Shot”, emotion pours out of “Goodnight Saigon”, and the melancholy tone of “New York State of Mind” is very relaxing.
4. Eric Paslay: Friday Night, this is my wife and daughter’s favorite song to crack up and sing along too, so obviously it is one of my favorites.
5. Big Tent Revival: Album: Open All Nite: Song “Mend Me” Give it a listen.
6. The Cadillac Three: I had to download their version of “Days of Gold” along with Jake Owens. I have my favorite, but I will let you decide which is better.
7. The Corners: Waking Up (always makes me think of zombies now)
8. Maroon 5: Payphone…how does he sing like that!?
9. Imagine Dragons: Radioactive -this goes in right before my son has Quincy United Soccer practice, Power Song!
10. Trailer Choir: Rollin’ Through the Sunshine -Love it! Would love to sit in with them and play fiddle on this song… (wink, wink)
So much for narrowing it down. At Number 11 on the countdown:
Black Stone Cherry, Zac Brown Band, Matchbox 20, Newsboys, Maroon 5, Bruno Mars, Mercy Me, Cody Canada and the Departed, Dallas Smith, Frenchie Burke, Gary Allan, Don Henley, Styx, Reo Speedwagon,
Thanks Andy, great list! Another "What's On You iPod?" will be coming soon!
