The weekly Top Ten for Wednesday, May 2, 2018 gets psychedelicized with the silhouette of James Scott Bullard against a day-glo background in the #1 spot with his “Wicked Ways”. Sticking with the bad decisions theme, Abby & the Myth relate “Best Mistakes” while Cicada Rhythm see a bright future on “America’s Open Road” and River Whyless stare at the empty parking lot of “Motel 6”. Liz Brasher entices with “Come My Way” as Jason Boland and the Stragglers find themselves “Right Where I Began”, David Wilcox instructs with “We Make the Way by Walking”, The County Well suggest “Whiskey Before Noon”, and Beth Neilsen Chapman hears the distance echoes of “Old Church Hymns and Nursery Rhymes”. Arkansas Dave closes out the chart on a slow building melody that falls around “Diamonds” on the weekly Top Ten Songs of the Week for Wednesday, May 2, 2018.
For songwriters, a specific cause, and the fortitude to keep goals in place, are the tools that build the songs. South Carolina-based James Scott Bullard provides background for the tracks on his recent release, Full Tilt Boogie, stating ‘all my songs are about bad decisions’ as he tells of “Wicked Ways”.
