This week Rev’s DJ pick is “Stick Around” by Josh Rouse! Rouse is a former Nashville resident who first found success with his 2003 album, 1972. After spending some time in Music City, he relocated to Spain where he completely reinvigorated his style with Spanish influence.
Rouse explains the essence of the song best: “I wrote this one summer while doing an outdoor show in Puerto de Santa Maria, Spain. We recorded the song in a couple of takes, it sounded somewhere between J.J. Cale and Fairport Convention, until I had Jim Hoke put some saxes on it and it became something else entirely. A barbecue strummer!”
While the Nashville weather may be starting to get colder, this track will let the sunshine into your day! Josh Rouse recently returned to Nashville for his sets at Americana Fest and Musicians Corner, as he finished up his Going Places tour.
