Pedal steel guitar innovator Robert Randolph’s latest album Got Soul is jubilant and energetic, full of reverb and motivation. It’s a jolt of positivity that comes at the right time for many.
“Everybody’s sorta depressed with a lot of stuff going on in the country and the world,” Randolph said during an interview for the April 3 episode of Country Pocket on WUSB. “People are just looking for something like this to pick them up.”
Count Darius Rucker among those who received this boost. His guest vocals on the track “Love Do What It Do” are among the best in his career largely because it’s so obvious he’s having the time of his life jamming along with Randolph and the family band.

So many people like to talk about what a disaster the ACA (aka ObamaCare) was, however, it seems that people forget a few key points. First, it wasn’t implemented as designed. There were many detrimental compromises included and many partisan roadblocks thrown up.
And it seems that many people have also forgotten that the insurance companies are for-profit entities, responsible not to the ACA, not to their providers, not to patients. They are beholden to their shareholders. All the other stuff – laws to follow, people to satisfy, all come as side dishes to the primary objective – profit.
