Song of the Day - Gram Parsons

Gram Parsons lived a lot in 26 years. He was in The Byrds, discovered Emmylou Harris, was friends with the Rolling Stones (rumor is he inspired "Wild Horses"), and there is bizarre stuff surrounding his death. Today is the 25th anniversary of his death.

"Return of the Grievous Angel"
Out with the truckers and the kickers and the cowboy angels
And a good saloon in every single town
Oh, and I remember something you once told me
And I'll be damned if it did not come true
Twenty thousand roads I went down, down, down
And they all lead me straight back home to you.
