Thad Cockrell and Caitlin Cary

Q: Have you guys heard of Thad Cockrell and Caitlin Cary? I heard them recently and was blown away. Here is their web site Follow the Music links and you can listen to full length songs. They also have some solo stuff, very nice.

We vacationed in McCreary County, Ky last week, population 17,190. I found a great radio station out of Whitley City, KY. You can check it out on line at I heard these two on a program called "Are you ready for the country?"

Reply: I really like Caitlin Cary! She used to be in Ryan Adams' old band, Whiskeytown, and then went solo. I have one of her CD's that I like a lot, but her piece de resistance is a live version of a song called Rosemary Moore (I'm guessing it might be a cover). There's another (less depressing) song of hers that I really like -- I think it's called Hold Onto Me.

Reply: I may have heard these two on WUMB yesterday. I tuned in in the middle of the interview. The woman was identified as Caitlin and I didn't get the guy's name. They played the Newport Folk Festival, so maybe they'll get booked into Club Passim or Johnny D's and I can see them live.
