Today’s “Featured Artist and Song of the Day” showcases City and Colour, which is the band name for Dallas Green, with this song, “What Makes A Man?,” off his record, Bring Me Your Love, through Vagrant Records.  This record was released in February of 2008.  He has since released the album, Little Hell, in June of this year.  Songs from that record will be featured in future articles of The Troubadour’s Road.

Green is on a huge tour with dates well into February of 2012.  He will be stopping in Denver, Saturday, November 12th, at the Ogden Theatre.  It is set to be a must-see show.  He’s an artist to continue to follow as he slings his guitar on his shoulder and wanders down the troubadour’s road.

These words find their place in their song, “What Makes A Man?,”

“I can hear my train comin’
It’s a lonesome and distant cry
I can hear my train comin’
Now I’m runnin’ for my life
What makes a man walk away from his mind?
I think I know
I think I might know

I can feel the wind blowin’
It’s sending shivers down my spine
I can feel the wind blowin’
It shakes the trees and the power lines
What makes a man spend his whole life in disguise?
I think I know
I think I might know…”

For updates, tour dates, and other news click on their website, you can buy their music on iTunes, and follow them on their Facebook Page.  City and Colour is on an extensive North American Tour, which many dates in both the US and Canada.  As mentioned above, City and Colour will be playing in Denver, at the Ogden Theatre, Saturday, November 12th.  Tickets can be purchased here.    Until the next time you’ll be able to see them, or until the next time you’ll be able to listen to them, here is City and Colour, with the song, “What Makes A Man?,” enjoy,
