If I Can't I Trust You With a Quarter (How Can I Trust You With My Heart?)

This week's instalment of the accidental series The Most Country of Country Song Titles comes from Austin band  Zoe Muth and the High Rollers with a song from their 2011 album Starlight Hotel

Described by that bastion of musical critique The Telegraph (London version as opposed to Dundee version) as authentic country done afresh.

The title of the song makes it a worthy addition to this series . Plus, how could you ignore a song that states
When you said you’d never heard John Prine,
Well I knew right away you weren’t worth my time.

Something I'm sure that we would all sign up to.

If you can trust yourself with a dollar it 's yours from Bandcamp

Zoe Muth & the Lost High Rollers - Let's Just Be Friends For Tonight


  1. I have the Starlight Hotel album which I bought on the strength of the John Prine line - And the song has a great old-time real country sound.

    Speaking of quarters, Travis Tritt had a song called "Here's a Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares)" which is about the only song of his I liked.

  2. Good call. I have a few tracks here and there but keep meaning to dig a little deeper.

    Agree with FBCB about that Travis Tritt song.
