Daily Download: "Sixteen," Lucero

A rugged but fragile country-rock song.

Published July 27, 2005 7:01AM (EDT)

This song from Memphis heartland rock band Lucero would be straightforward and somewhat flat were it not for Ben Nichols' ragged voice, sad and kind, giving the song a fragile, battered heart beneath its rough exterior. Also, listen for the nice snare roll drum part in the outro.
