Stuck In Thee Garage #42: July 4, 2014

July 4th means a lot of things to Americans, and one of the most common ways we celebrate it is to fire up the ol' barbecue grill. And hopefully, listen to some good music. This week on Stuck In Thee Garage, I featured an hour's worth of songs about America, and not the Lee Greenwood flag-waving stuff, either. And hopefully you can dig 'em any time you're preparing some fine cuisine.
