Song of the Day: Do I Ever Cross Your Mind, Justin Townes Earle and Dawn Landes

This little acoustic ditty has been making its way across the United States after popping up as a free download from Paste Magazine.  It’s a cover of a Dolly Parton song but don’t let that scare you away, its perhaps the sweetest duet to ever grace country music since Johnny Cash and June Carter came along.  You can find some live performances of it on youtube as well, as Justin Townes Earle and Dawn Landes have been touring together recently.  Make no doubts about it, JTE seems a worthy heir apparent to the good old “Man in Black” having not only the youthful baritone of Cash’s early years, but the character struggles as well (both have faced problems with addiction) and for all we know, this little partnership could turn into the Johnny Cash and June Carter romance of our time. Just give this song a listen, it’s sure to stick in your head for quite a while.
