I believe this is the newest “Awesome Old Song” that I’ve featured to date. Jackopierce released the single “Vineyard” in 1997, just 16 years ago. But since this is my first Martha’s Vineyard weekend of the year, it seemed fitting. Even though the band is from Texas, the song is somewhat autobiographical. It tells the story of lead singer Cary Pierce spending a few days on the island and meeting a nice girl.
In the brief time period that “burning CD’s” was the norm, I made a mix including this song that never left the 5 disc changer in the bar I worked at all summer. That and the Cocktail soundtrack.
