We are headed down to Mississippi and up to no good. Actually, we are doing a lot of good as today’s giveaway is really exciting. Fat Possum Records, in Oxford, Mississippi, boasts several Mississippi blues artists, as well as, more independent sounds such as, Band of Horses. If you ask me, that is quite the spectrum of artists to sign.
Visit the Fat Possum Record website and check out all of their artists. Select 2 records of your choice, and leave them in a comment for this post by Sunday, April 25, 2010. You might select someone like Al Green, Band of Horses, Andrew Bird, Cecil Barfield, Furry Lewis, Jimmy Lee Harris, or Heartless Bastards. The fun part is that the decision is entirely up to you! Don’t forget that by entering you also enter to win a southern gardening and/or style book.
The past few days of prizes have been nothing to scoff at either, Monday’s Mitford Series books, Tuesday’s Corky’s BBQ, Wednesday’s Phickles Pickles (you really want these), and Thursday’s Kentucky Bourbon balls. Whew! That is a lot of great stuff you don’t want to miss.
Continuing with the excitement for our second anniversary, here are a few of the favorite posts from the beloved Mississippi. She is such a pretty state, she will chase your blues away!
