the thing is though is that if he does country music it will be like older country (ex. hank williams, george jones, willie nelson) not new country (ex. jason aldean, darius rucker, kenny chesney) and thats good! old country music is very good actually and it sounds completely different from the newer music :) so try not to stress about it! :)

VERY true hahaha Storm Passes Away was the most country song out of Shangri La and it was definitely one of my favorites so I know I’ll still enjoy it, I just don’t know how much I’d like a FULL album of it

Jake usually has a cover song in each setlist. It would be great if he also played one of his old songs in each show, a different song each night chosen from the ones he doesn't play anymore. It would keep things interesting for Jake (not having to play the exact same setlist night after night) and would mean he doesn't forget how to play them. And we'd love it too!

I don’t think he will be playing cover in the fall just because of time. And I think Jake is over his old songs. If he still enjoyed playing them he wouldn’t have let himself forget them.

Jake opening for the Black Keys in the fall in the US is good for increasing his audience and sales, definitely. But if he'e not going to play his acoustic stuff, because it's a rock audience (or because it's a festival audience, etc. the reasons seem to go on and on) then in order to get more sales, they are changing him as an artist. He is what he plays, and if he only plays rock live now, then that's who he is as an artist. How will the new fans know anything different?

By listening to the rest of his music!! Shangri La was obviously going into a more rock side. I think he enjoys his rock songs. This fall he only has maybe 30-45 mins to play. I doubt he will play many acoustic songs. Probably just Broken
