Ever wondered what moves those who make the music that moves us? Ever wonder what they put on when they’re sad? Or happy? Or just plumb mad?
Thanks to our new series, Five Dollar Mixtape, now you can find out. In each episode, hosted by Matt Popkin, we take a recording artist down to a local record store so that they can make us a five song mixtape from the tracks they find while wandering the aisles.
Focusing on a different theme each time, Five Dollar Mixtape is both a way to get to know your favorite artists a little better and to pick up some new favorite songs, all while laughing yourself silly.
This week, we had singer/songwriter JBM come down to The Great Escape in Nashville, Tennessee ,and make us his best break-up mixtape. You can listen to the five songs he picked here. Get your tissues ready. It’s about to get dusty in here.
