Story Songs - O: One Woman and a Shovel


Carrie Newcomer is a fantastic folk singer (and many more folk songs could probably make their way onto this list if I listened to it a little more). One of my favorites from her is called, "One Woman and Shovel," about how practical no-nonsense ladies get it done and save a town.

One Woman and a Shovel: Carrie Newcomer

You get a bonus today, because I also love this hilarious story song from Blake Shelton about how a special kind of "puppy love" can orchestrate a jailbreak.

  1. When a job need's to be done, grab a shovel and get to it. Thanks for introducing me to Carrie! :)

  2. Country songs either start off or end sad...

  3. I've never heard of Carrie, but I love her sound! Thank you so much for sharing. It's always fun to be introduced to new artists and types of music :)
