Song of the Day: Gonna Be Free by Doctor G and the Mudcats

Doctor G

Doctor G

I’m heading to Quincy, Illinois tonight to watch Doctor G and the Mudcats play at Cellar 21. In honor of this show, I’m picking a song from their 2010 CD, My Daddy’s Blues, as the Song of the Day. Gonna Be Free is great tune inspired by the stories of slaves trying to get across the Mississippi to freedom. Join me in Quincy tonight for an energetic band that will probably be playing a few river songs that made my list.

Listen to Gonna Be Free here.
