I Feel Like Bustin' Loose
From the NEA site:
As a group, these folk and traditional artists reflect the diverse heritage and cultural traditions that transcend their beginnings to become part of our national character. Americans all, they bring age-old customs, crafts and ways of living to the flux of American life, a pluralism that makes us strong and defines us, in the words of Walt Whitman, as "not merely a nation but a teeming nation of nations."
Rock on, Chuck.
Another of this year's honorees is Wanda Jackson, who just so happens to be playing at The Black Cat on July 8. I may have to check her out.
