The immensely talented D'Addario brothers are back with two new tracks ("Foolin' Around" being the other) and I was as excited as can be leading off the show with them this week. I sing their praises every time I'm able to give them a spin on the show and for the 1,345th time, go see them live next time you have the chance. Do it. You will NOT be disappointed.
