I have a new favorite boy with a guitar. Sorry, Josh. [Ritter]. Meet Ray LaMontagne.
Matt bought his CD from iTunes last night (it's entitled Trouble). He loves to discover new things that I'll love, and he does so with startling accuracy. Technically, Oprah found him first, and Matt's a little miffed about that. (I happened to read a little blurb about him in the December issue of O yesterday, but hadn't actually heard him yet.)
You know how movie studios often sneak in the best movie of the year right under the deadline to be nominated for the Academy Awards? I have my own little personal awards show in my head for books, music, movies... and there is a strong possibility that this CD will be in the running for best of the year.
