Ryan Adams - Walls

In June of 2001, before the release of his album "Demolition," Ryan Adams hit the studio with a band of Sheldon Gromberg, Ethan Johns, Greg Leisz, Chris Stills, and Julianne Raye to records some tracks. Over the next 48 hours the group cut 11 full tracks. While only a couple of them would make the cut for the Demolition album, the entire recording session would be made available, unofficially, to the public and be known as the 48 Hour Sessions.

From these sessions comes possibly my favorite Adams tune of all, "Walls." A country tune, with organs, harmonies, extended pedal steel solos and lyrics about smoking, drinking, failure to remember one's roots, and taking out your anger on a wall. I played this song for a friend this past weekend and he summed up his feelings on the song by saying, "That's badass." Badass indeed. Please enjoy "Walls" by Ryan Adams.
