Let's talk about BLUES! I'm sure you're thinking, "Taylor... you already MADE A BLUES PLAYLIST!" Well.. this is true.. but why not have two?! This playlist differs from "Spirit Cleansing" in a couple ways.  1) It has much much more guitar!  2) It has no female artists. Which is weird for me, because if you know me, you know I love my female artists. 
What I like best about blues is the emotion. not only do the lyrics give you an incredible look into the soul of the artists, but the guitar behind the lyrics tells you how they really feel. And the COURAGE! These artists let all of their emotions be visible by millions of people every day. I respect all of these artists very very much. 

This week's playlist was requested by a reader, and I couldn't be happier. I love seeing my readers get excited about an upcoming playlist! Keep the requests coming!
