Song of the Day: Ben Shive


There are rumors around town that there might be a new Ben Shive album on the horizon. If you love his first album as much as I do, that’s cause for celebration.

What’s that you say? You don’t own the first album? Good heavens. In that case, you’d best listen to this. It’s only one of the many amazing songs you’ve been missing out on. Listen. Love. And then get thee to the Rabbit Room store make it your own. Today only, The Ill-Tempered Klavier is just $10 ($7 Download).

“Nothing For The Ache”


Pete Peterson is the author of the Revolutionary War adventure The Fiddler’s Gun and its sequel Fiddler’s Green. Among the many strange things he’s been in life are the following: U.S Marine air traffic controller, television editor, art teacher and boatwright at the Florida Sheriffs Boys Ranch, and progenitor of the mysterious Budge-Nuzzard. He lives in Nashville with his wife, Jennifer, where he's the Executive Director of the Rabbit Room and Managing Editor of Rabbit Room Press.

    This is perfect timing. Really. I was about to puchase one at a concert the other night, but they were sold out (which is, indeed, a good thing). Headed to the RRstore RIGHT NOW!

    This was the most anticipated album of 2008 for me, and I was not disappointed.

    How else will you know why it’s so important for the piano to be out of tune?

    Buy it! Buy it, and you may! Buy it and you may, I say.

    Wow. Don’t know how I missed this song earlier this week, but it’s brilliant. Just listened to it three times in a row. I also love “4th of July.” I really need to get this album. Thanks for posting!
