"Please Don't Tell Me How The Story Ends" by the divine miss Joan Osborne, one of my favorite living singers. On her excellent Pretty Little Stranger album, the song is a classic Country tune in the style heard in the 50's and 60's by the likes of Tammy Wynette and Loretta Lynn. Harmony vocal by Dan Tyminski of Alison Krauss' great band Union Station. Dan has a couple of solo albums of his own.
Following "DTMHTSE" on the album is another great Country tune, "Time Won't Tell". These two songs would never be heard on "Country" radio, as they are real Country, not Pop/Rock Country-lite. If you like them, check out the great pure Country/Bluegrass singer (Joan's a multi-genre singer) Patty Loveless.
