In a bit of an upset for a Nashville-based playlist, it took until Week 3 for readers to drop some Jason Isbell suggestions for our Music Monday playlist. Isbell is in the midst of his residency at the Ryman Auditorium.

  • Shout out to readers Cathy, Carl, Jami, James, Hank and Michael for recommendations this week.

ğŸŽº Since Nate's son is taking up the trumpet, Nate's picks this week include a perfect song from the New Orleans ska band Bad Operation. Maybe one day he will be the proud father of a horn player in an indie ska band.

  • In honor of "Tommy Boy" being added to Netflix, Nate also included a song from the great "Tommy Boy" concept album by friend and Tennessean music reporter Dave Paulson.

🍷 Adam included "Return To The Moon" by EL VY, a song he heard this weekend while enjoying a fancy double date at Bastion in Wedgewood-Houston. It turns out the sommelier, who was picking records, had great taste in music, too.

  • And it just so happens that "Tommy Boy" included one of his favorite songs of all time: "Superstar" by the Carpenters.
