Friday Cocktail



This week I'm featuring another great artist from back in the day. I was in high school when this guy came around. I fell in love with his deep, sexy, bluesy voice not to mention his hotness.. Can you believe he was only 17 when this was recorded? I remember reading an article in Seventeen (I think, it was sooo long ago..) Magazine about him and how he would perform on stage barefoot. I thought he was so cool for doing that.. I'm glad to see he is still out there making music! He will be coming to our area soon, I may have to talk the hubby into taking me!!
The song I have below is from his first album (he recorded it when he was 17). I love that album to death. I wish I could of found the video to Matchbox or Still Rainin' but this will have to do. They are all great songs! There was a live version of this song I thought about playing for you all, but it was done more recently, I want you all to experiance Johnny Lang at 17.
