When I get to heaven--and I'm aware it'll take a little time--one of the first answers I'll want is to the following question: what IS the perfect country song? I've about 20 candidates, things like "So Sad (to watch good love go bad)" and "Last Thing I Needed (first thing this morning)" but the odds-on for the crown is John Prine's "Angel from Montgomery." It's kind of a perfect song--female point of view, hopeless, accurate, foreboding and melancholy--but maybe there's one out there I've missed along the way. The best country songs stop you in your tracks and tells you more about yourself than any friend you've known.I'm betting John Prine. Maybe Lake Marie, but I'll go with Bonnie Raitt's verstion of Angel from Montgomery. Perfect. I don't know that anyone has improved on AP and Maybelle's original recordings, but that's pretty damn close. -- Nashville is like the opposite Edmonton in NHL terms.
