Laura Rose Cantrell born 16th July, 1967 (Nashville) - moved to New York City in the 1980s

‘Two Seconds’ - 2016 Sunday morning performance of a song from her first album “Not the Tremblin’ Kind” (2000) - one of my favourites from the 21stC (unless you believe that didn’t begin until 2001)

song written by Bob McCreedy of the Volebeats

I’d not previously heard Laura’s version of Johnny Rivers’ ‘Poor Side of Town’ - recorded for NPR’s “World Cafe” but not broadcast

The YT posting cuts the last ten seconds; the full 3:24 is available for streaming or downloading from her site -

Laura’s “Radio Thrift Shop” has not been broadcast for a few years now, but past episodes remain archived at WFMU -

as I recall the show would usually start with ‘Walk through this world with me’; the Tammy Wynette version, I think

(this appears to be the only successful song to have been written by Kay Savage and Sandra Seamons)

There's a clip of Laura with the song's composer Amy Allison (daughter of Mose) together at a benefit in 2012

Never knew that, John. Thanks. Here's one by Amy Allison with Ole Man Mose - a really beautiful song, "Was" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwSMG_aSxWc
