Song of the Day: Justin Townes Earle, " Wanderin' "

Denver-Music.com now has a series called "Song of the Day."  Some of the songs you may have heard, others you may have not.  This series will try to help you, the music fan, in finding some new artists, or give you a chance to listen to a song you've hopefully already grown to love.  It will also bring an opportunity to buy some CD's, and give the information you'll need to see some of the featured artist's shows when they come around your area. 

Some songs will be dedicated, have a story behind them, while some posts may be just some information on the band.  Sometimes it will be a combination of all three.  I'll be posting this web address on Facebook for a couple weeks, but the best bet would be to bookmark this website.

Also, if you have a song you'd like to dedicate or a song you'd like to see as the "Song of the Day" leave it at the comment section of this page or send me a Facebook message, or contact me via Twitter.  I'll do my best to accommodate your request.  I hope you like the new series, and enjoy their music as much as I do.

Today's "Song of the Day" comes from Justin Townes Earle with his song, "Wanderin'."  The singer/songwriter was born in Nashville, Tennessee, and now resides in Manhattan, New York.  Talent is in his blood, for he's the son of musician, Steve Earle, and was named after Townes Van Zandt, who is one of his inspirations.

His road has been a tough one, but he's conquered his demons, got himself in a great place, and is producing incredible music. 

Lyrics always catch my ear, and the song, "Wanderin'," has these verses:

"Well I'm just a lonely traveler and I don't know where I'm bound.
Though, that if I keep on moving then I know that I'll be found.
I'll climb high atop a mountain, call for he who holds the crown,
But until that day, keep on wanderin'

Well now, when the soul wanders there are things a man must see.
There are trials he must know and there are troubles he must meet.
He must stare in the eyes of evil and know that he is free.
'Til the good lord calls, keep on wanderin'..."
