We're big Leagues fans. In fact, our third-ever Record of the Month was their album You Belong Here. With their most recent album Alone Together featured in our member store right now, we asked members Thad Cockrell and Jeremy Lutito to share their must-have albums:
It's brilliant! If you look at what he was writing before this record, you can see the bravery in it. The Nashville music/publishing industry was trying to browbeat Willie into what they wanted him to be. I can't thank him enough for having the courage to walk into a sound that made him more authentic.
This was Marvin walking away from the game and writing what he couldn't help but write. It's so stunning, and the songs seemed un-written. It was less of a song that he was trying to write and more of a feeling he was trying to create. When I listen to him singing, I can feel the pleasure of God.
