Three CD’s That Need to be Added to Your Road Trip Playlist:

Every now and then you’ll come across a album that makes you wish the drive was longer just so you could finish it. They’re rare, but when they come they tend to stick on your playlist for not weeks but months.

They get down in your soul, they say something to you. They’re just right.

Since they are so hard to find I thought I would share my three favorites. They’re all fairly recent albums and they aren’t super main stream- so there is still a chance I might be able to introduce you to something you love.

And the best part? You won’t want to skip a single song on the album.

You can find it on Spotify here.
