Sunday, March 8 on The Mulberry Tree


This Sunday, March 8 on The Mulberry Tree, I begin a four-part series acknowledging the 50 United States in song.  Each of the songs you’ll hear over the next several weeks represents in some way one of the states, beginning with Jason Isbell’s “Alabama Pines,” a song included with his collection “Here We Rest” and the subject of this week’s sneak peek playlist video.
