Where This Meets That
“Tuesday Tunage” is a weekly spotlight for music I deem worthy of a spotlight. To make it worth all of our time, I’ll do my best to emphasize tunes you probably haven’t heard before that represent the art in all its glorious varieties.
Betts celebrates his sixty-ninth birthday this week, and “Bougainvillea” is the closing track on his album Dickey Betts and Great Southern. “Bougainvillea” always sweeps me away with its delicate southern vocal harmonies vocals and sublime guitar work. To top it off, Don Johnson (yeah, that one) co-wrote the song and even sings background, which is really great because it saves me from ever having to use a Tuesday Tunage on this.
Take a listen below. I hope you enjoy “Bougainvillea” as much as I do!
