Look at Bob Dylan smiling on this record cover like he just ate a free ham dinner. Yes, Nashville Skyline is the comfort food of this guy’s discography. You’d be hard-pressed to find something on this album that rubs you the wrong way (I could make an argument for the unnecessary Johnny Cash duet but I won’t). Anyway, I was listening to Country Pie today and just thinking about how hard it is to imagine Bob Dylan not smiling while he is singing this song. Everyone has their own assessment system for a musician like Dylan, but for what it’s worth, I put a pretty high value on a song the man had to grin while singing.
