31 Songs a Day for May: Day Twenty - Sofia Talvik - "Big Sky Country"

I raved about Talvik's latest album a couple weeks ago, but I really didn't spend enough time on how much I like the title track. I don't always spend a lot of time on lyrics, and "Big Sky Country" is a really great story of the Scandinavian singer-songwriter's time spent touring the United States over almost sixteen months a few years back. I missed her on the tour (and I'm still kicking myself for it), but, especially when the general feeling toward describing America in general is negative in the standard non-country songwriting, it's interesting to hear a positive listen from an outsider perspective. I really like this song, I hope you give this and her album a shot.
