As a recent convert to Charlie Robison’s music, I am pleased to announce that Country Universe is giving away an autographed copy of his new album, Beautiful Day, thanks to the generosity of dualtoneRecords.
Despite the album’s seemingly positive title, Beautiful Day is mostly the exploration of the emotional upheaval that resulted in the aftermath of his high profile divorce from Dixie Chick, Emily Robison. In this superb album, you will detect a variety of emotions including sadness, resignation, tentative hopefulness and other feelings that naturally occur upon ending a union that was meant to last forever.
As usual, any comment will count as an entry for the random drawing. However, if you’re looking for direction, here’s what I’ve got:
If you could have anyliving country artist hang out with you in your very own living room, who would you choose?
