Irish Road Trip Songs

Some countries are just meant to be seen from the road and Ireland is definitely one of them.  When Brandon and I hit the road for 12 days on the Emerald Isle we picked up a few music CD’s at a souvenir shop before starting our journey.  During our trip we listened to the same […]
