Startin' us off this week is a great Jerry Jeff Walker classic, "Barefootin'".  Originally penned by Robert Parker, you can find this song on Walker's 1998 Cowboy Boots & Bathin' Suits CD.

Originally a Caribbean calypso (similar to a folk song) with lyrics added by the great Lord Burgess, "Jamaica Farewell" made it to the Billboard Top 20 when recorded by Harry Belafonte on his legendary 1956 Calypso album.

"Third Coast" is a Larry Joe Taylor tune that has been covered by several artists.  This Brian Burns version is excellent, we must say!

This week we've got the pleasure of introducing another Dennis Davis song to our audience.  "On the Seawall" is from his latest CD, Tropic of Texas.

"Livingston's Gone to Texas" is a little known Jimmy Buffett song that comes from the almost-forgotten High Cumberland Jubilee album.  Released in 1971, this early work is considered by some fans to be the "lost album" as the master recording was in fact misplaced for years and was only found after Buffett had become famous.

We played "Skeletons on the Beach" a few weeks ago, but it's back due to popular demand!  This song can be found on Sunny Jim's Sandbar Serenade CD.

It's on the Greetings from Mulligan's Island that you can find this Mark Mulligan tune.

New to the Gulf Coast Cowboy stable of artists is Billy Currington!  Written by Bobby Braddock and Troy Jones, you can find "People Are Crazy" on Currington's 2008 Little Bit of Everything album.

Another song we played a few months ago that is back due to listener request is Atlanta-based Craver's "Key West Holiday".

"Paradise, Quickly" is a great John Frinzi ditty that we found on his fantastic 2009 Shoreline CD.

Wrapping things up this week is Kenny Chesney's "Coastal".  Written by Michael Mobley, Wendell Mobley, and Neil Thrasher, you can find it on Chesney's 2010 Hemingway's Whiskey album.
