# 12 - Faithless Street - Whiskeytown

Because I'm not as well-versed as many of this blog's participants, I was unaware of the concept, genre, what-have-you of alt-country. I found it in Whiskeytown, probably a few years after everyone else. "Faithless Street" has 21 tracks of pure country gold. Lots of drinking and heartache, plenty of references to Tennessee and baseball parks - what more do I need?

"Faithless Street" has accompanied me on every roadtrip I've taken to East Tennessee, and it is a near perfect, road-tested album.

Favorite tracks: Midway Park, Faithless Street, Lo-Fi Tennessee Mountain Angel.
