Etta James dies at age 73

I'd like to take a break from our usual country beat to honor the passing of blues giant, Etta James. Country owes a great deal to the blues and gospel singers who came before, and Etta was one of the best at blending those two styles. You'll hear a lot of her song "At Last" in the coming days in her memory. But I'd like to remember her for her joyful spirit,which I think is better captured on "Something's Got a Hold on Me"
Thank you for your music Etta. Heaven's choir just got a little better.
