Man, I had gotten to thinking...

...nobody made music like this anymore, at Willie's Place, Sirius Ch. 64: "My ex is out tonight, while my walls are closing in...Where are all the girls I use to cheat with?"
Once again, that's Merle Haggard's stepson Ron Williams doing an old Keith Whitley song, from his cd Texas Style, which came out about two years ago. Seriously, before I found out just who he was, I could have sworn he was one of those near-forgotten singers from the 1970s, like Mel Street. What I've heard of him sounds just like it was recorded back then. But it doesn't sound the least bit dated. I prefer the term "timeless."
