Merry Christmas from the Trailer Park
Antsy McClain released a solo album last year entitled Time-Sweetened Lies, a collection of his folk/folk-rock songs that includes an impressive list of guest artists (Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham, founding member of Steppenwolf Bobby Cochran, Australian guitar legend Tommy Emmanuel, flamenco guitarists Ruben Romero and Edgar Cruz, and more). Time-Sweetened Lies has been on the playlists at many folk radio shows and several folk DJs include the CD on their “Best of 2005” list.
The long awaited Trailer Park Troubadours Christmas CD has been released (at least it was to be released; their website still lists it as available for pre-order). I’ll be adding this CD to my Christmas CD collection to counteract the NASCAR and barking dogs “Jingle Bells” we’ll all be hearing on the radio soon.

All of the Trailer Park Troubadours CDs, and Antsy McLain's Time-Sweetened Lies and his book "It Takes a Trailer Park: Coming of Age in Pine View Heights" are available here.
