    Dig that Gentle Guest song.  Mavis Staples and The Head & the Heart  were glaring omissions.  Thanks!

    I want The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band & Mavis Staples (selections from her two Jeff Tweedy produced albums :You Are Not Alone & one True Vine) on here.Actually there is a Americana category at the Grammy'

    s that Songpop could pull songs off of.

    And if you are going to include Deer Tick you might as well include John McCauley's other projects: Diamond Rugs & Middle Brother(whom I see is already there) .Middle Brother included members of Dawes & Delta Spirit so you could include them too.Also Phosphorescent has a good Americana vibe right now as well.Also the Lawless soundtrack has a great Americana vibe as well & while I that you could add other Nick Cave tunes

    Updated.  We need some more rootsy music on Songpop for fans of this type of music and people who like to discover new tunes.
