I remember hearing that album too, it didn't make sense to me until I was doing a manual labor job. For some reason beer and country music became interesting and important.Also, I think you mean 8 year anniversary, sorry.
My math skills...
i am deeply indebted to my brother for introducing me to ryan adams. wish i could remember the date because it would be an anniversary worth celebrating.
At the end of a crappy shift at the music store, As I am making a line for the back room door to leave, a customer (of course) asks me if I can help her. I begrudgingly stop and help:she says "Well,I'm looking for a singer named 'Ryan Adams' - not Bryan Adams"I say, (in my head) "thank god thank god I love this woman"I say (out loud) " He's right over here under "A"She say's: "I just heard "Gold" for the first time and I loved it. I didnt know there was more. Has he been around for a while? "OH YEAH, theres more. Its all great" - I hand her a fistful of albums....I was a bit late leaving. It was probably minus 40 outside. She took heartbreaker home with her. I made it home just fine.
I still associate 'Heartbreaker' with the dry heat of that Saskatchewan summer. It's hard to imagine it being heard first in the dry cold of a bitter Calgary winter.I think I may never work selling movies or music, and for that I am almost a little bit sorry.
