Later this week, my sister and her family will pile into the car and cross Nebraska and South Dakota home to Minnesota for the Thanksgiving holiday. In her honor, I hope you enjoy today's Minnesota songs.
My sister will be spending her Minnesota time in our central Minnesota hometown rather than the Minne-apple, but I love this new single from local artist Mark Mallman. City Pages aptly calls Mallman's "Minneapolis" exuberant.
With winter upon us, I'm sure the St. Paul and Minneapolis skyways have been getting more traffic. This short-and-sweet song by the Replacements tells a wistful little love story.
Along with envisioning Minnesota, this last song also takes us back in time to the days my sister and I spent at the roller rink when we were kids.
Enjoy this week of Thanksgiving. Safe travels, wherever you're headed! What's on your Thanksgiving travels soundtrack? Share your playlist here or connect with me on twitter.
