"A String to a Bell" by Jonas Friddle & The Majority

This song from Chicago-based folk group Jonas Friddle & The Majority is a traditional country song, complete with banjo licks and down-home harmonies, with lyrics that celebrate the singer's relationship with God that has nothing to do with rehab or jingoism. Too often, "modern" country is just another variation of vapid pop music. This track shows how deep and rich the genre can be when it emulates what's come before.
