Something for the weekend: Sam Outlaw “Do You Really Love Me?”

Well that’s it from us for another week dear reader. One of my favourite songs ever recorded is South Dakota-born Sam Outlaw’s ‘Who Do You Think You Are?‘ It’s a gorgeous swooning number with mariachi horns, and somewhere on my phone I have a video of my late mum dancing with my dad to it which I can’t bear to watch. Anyhow, we leave you with this week with the track song ‘Do You Really Love Me?’ – a new song from Outlaw that marries bluegrass instrumentation with themes of modern existential dread, and features pedal steel by JayDee Maness – famous for his work on The Byrds’ 1968 country-rock classic ‘Sweetheart of The Rodeo.’ It’s a welcome return to country following Outlaw’s last album which had a more 80s vibe (but did contain some absolute diamonds such as ‘Polyamorous’). Will stop namechecking Sam Outlaw tracks now! Have a good one.
