Here's one that is sure to satisfy all you fans of countrified, folky Texas singer/songwriters in the mold of Guy Clark, Terry Allen, Townes Van Zandt et al. Perhaps not surprisingly, Adam Carroll and Owen Temple both call Austin home.

The Austin Chronicle called Carroll one of the city's best-kept secrets among singer/songwriters. Temple's latest album, "Mountain Home," features guest spots and co-writing credits from Carroll and bass and guitar from Charlie Sexton, who has played in Dylan's backing band the last few years and is a celebrated songwriter in his own right.

The album has earned solid reviews, including a nod on the blog Hyperbolium, which said "Mountain Home" is "an album that ingratiates itself on first pass, and reveals deep new details with each subsequent spin."
