I realized this morning that I have a copy of the Marcus Hummon demo version of “Bless the Broken Road.” It’s lovely. If I could legally share it with you all, I would do so quite happily. But for now, if you don’t already know the song, you can just listen to the Rascal Flatts clip on Amazon.com, even though it cuts off right before the end of the chorus, leaving the hook and the chord progression unresolved. But it’s beautiful anyway.

I love songwriter demos of hit songs

    On an unrelated note, I met a very kewl singer/songwriter this weekend who happens to be visiting Nashville for a week, starting the next day or so. I thought of y’all and was wondering if you’d have any interest in meeting him just to talk or whatever. He’s a lot of fun and I think y’all would like him. If you’re interested in hooking up with him, please drop me a line at jbspoly at yahoo dot com and I can introduce y’all via email.
