Shades. Not the title I would’ve picked. But it works.

“Broke Down South of Dallas” by Junior Brown


“Broke Down South of Dallas” from the album 12 Shades of Brown, released in 1993

Junior Brown plays the “guit-steel” double neck guitar, a hybrid of electric guitar and lap steel guitar. That should really be enough to get your interested.

But wait. There’s more!

His lyrics are oftentimes irreverent and fun and offer a sardonic view of life. “Broke Down South of Dallas” is one of his best when it comes to that concept. The story of a man whose wife doesn’t suffer his nonsense is both entertaining and educational.

Why don’t you come on up and give it a listen?
