ryan adams and the cardinals - i still miss someone

ryan adams and the cardinals are back with their second of three albums to be released in 2005. the album is called "jacksonville city nights" and was released via lost highway on sept. 27th. i've heard a lot of people refer to it as a honky-tonk record but to me it's more or less just traditional country. most of the tracks on the album were cut in two or three takes and then left alone so there are a few mistakes here and there but i think it gives the album character. the track i'm posting is a b-side that's currently only available on the vinyl version of the album. it's a haunting cover of one of my favorite johnny cash songs. recommended if you like: willie nelson, johnny cash, hank williams.

I agree with you that this album just sounds really country. I don't even know what honky-tonk is.

If you took out the pedal steel this record would clearly be the older, drunker brother of Heartbreaker.
'Country' feels like a theme The Cardinals are jamming around as opposed to a chosen genre.
