In the video for “Say Oh Say,” Manuel calls Courtney Jaye “one of the nicest persons in country music.” That’s not hyperbole, but the real draw here is the way Jaye sings “Say Oh Say,” today’s Jam of the Day (yes, that rhymes like four times). There’s a lot of talent coming out of Nashville these days, and Jaye is deserving of a seat at the head table. And there’s no doubt that her new album, Love and Forgiveness, due May 7th, will confirm her reservation.
For now, though (along with this Noise Trade sampler), we have this gem of a song/video to tide us over.
