Ryan Adams — La Cienega Just Smiled

Year: 2001

I think this is the only song of his I’ve listened to. It has just the right amount of angst without the controlling misogyny of say, I don’t know, Bryan Adams songs. Apparently, “La Cienega” literally means “The Swamp.” It’s a street in Los Angeles, so I guess the girl lives there. Romantic!

He’s got a bunch of Grammys, so I guess he’s popular. If you like others by him, drop them in the comments.
