Help support these artists (they deserve it)

Hey, gang, here's a list of artists that I've "discovered" recently that I really like. I've changed my attitude lately towards supporting these and similar artists. I actually go to their websites and BUY the CD's, t-shirts, etc. I will NOT give away those CD's etc. for free. These people need our money and support and they well deserve it. If you want free music, feel free to download all the Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum, etc. stuff you can find. They're not going to miss a few bucks. Support your local (or not so local) artist! Buy their stuff, send them an email telling how much you love their sound, go see them in person if you can, and generally be supportive of them. Good music is out there, you just have to look a little harder for it. Here's my list: (additions/revisions, no doubt, to come)

Eilen Jewell and her band

Red Molly

Riders In The Sky

Sunny Sweeney

Sara Petite

Josie Kuhn

Annie Lou

The Quebe Sisters

The Vespers

Hot Club Of Cowtown

The Secret Sisters

I'm going to load my MP3 player with music from these artists. I will probably continue to post VA albums here since I don't think that's hurting anybody.
