    Yes "Hart of Dixie" is a show on The CW. It isn't badly written, acted, directed, etc., despite the core audience of the network. But what has me leaving it on my recording list while dumping "Ringer" and "The Secret Circle" is the music.

    I'm including links to Amazon's site so you can sample each one though most are also available through iTunes and other sources.

    Unlike everything else on The CW all the music is great Southern/Country/Blues/Folk. Here's from the pilot's playlist:

    (There was an interesting sounding rap song used near the beginning while Hart was still in NYC, Best Love Song by T-pain featuring Chris Brown.)

    Anyway, if the other elements of the show stay about as good as or better then the pilot, than the sound track may keep it in our record list all season.

    I'm going to continue to do this in case someone else is interested. Here's the Episode 2 Parades and Pariahs music list which, if you like Great Southern/Country/Blues/Folk music, is the real reason to watch a show that is a bit of charming fluff, not bad, but definitely not an Emmy nominee:

    Again, the links are to Amazon to allow you to listen to a sample of each song, but each song can be purchased at iTunes or elsewhere.

    I would love to watch this show as I like the sound of the story line and definitely like Rachel Bilson from her short stint on Chuck in Season 2 but it's not on in HD here so that kills it for me.

    Now that The CW has picked up the whole season, this will end up being a great playlist. From episode 3 Gumbo and Glory:
    • Barefoot and Crazy by Jack Ingram, a Texas Country artist.
    • Fletcher by Blitzen Trapper, Portland, Oregon-based experimental alternative country/folk group that in 2008 had an album ranked #13 on Rolling Stone's Best Albums of 2008 from which the title track was ranked #4 on the magazine's Best Singles of 2008.
    • I'm Southern by The Cadillac Black, the group's second song to appear on the series.
      I'm happy the show has been picked up for a full season as it will allow for a great playlist. Here's the list from episode 3:
    • Little Lie by Lindi Ortega, a Canadian singer-songwriter and musician, known for her voice that has been described as a blend of Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, and Emmylou Harris called "Toronto's best kept secret" (I'm linking to the album and suggest playing the second track to understand the Dolly Parton reference).
    • West Virginia Baby by James River Station, one of only seven country acts in all of Southern California chosen for the TEXACO COUNTRY SHOWDOWN, where they performed at KNOTTS BERRY FARM; Out of thousands of performers and acts, James River Station was chosen by GOCOUNTRY 105fm listeners and program directors (song not yet available but can be heard on ReverbNation here.
    Also there was a song out of the genre, Reluctance by Keegan Dewitt, a young film composer, singer-songwriter and actor.

    OK, from episode #4 In Havoc and In Heat:
    I'm sorry to say, I cannot find any links to the last song. In fact, neither I nor other sources I use can find anything about the group or the song. A search on either or both pretty much ends up with too much. There are many songs with the same name. And a search on "FM Radio" cranks out thousands of results. I'm setting up a Google Search should more appear on the interwebs specific to the song and group and "Hart of Dixie", but if anyone can find anything post it here.

    Ok, fortunately someone posted this on YouTube as the interweb is beginning to grumble over the fact that no one can find this song (and the view ain't bad neither :grin:).

    And I'll be darned if the "duo" FM Radio that did Lead Me Home by FM Radio in Episode #4 is Tim Myers and Schuyler Fisk. Here's their FM Radio MySpace page. And according to a post on their Facebook Page, they will be releasing Lead Me Home soon.

    It is in SD for me here too. But I like the show enough to put up with it. It is such a sweet, sappy show of the sort you don't see much, or at least I haven't, for a long time.

    Yep, SD for us too. Each year we have a show that allows us to dig our way out from under all the dead bodies piling up from the crime solving procedurals and simply enjoy light, fluffy drama. This year its "Hart of Dixie." Plus the sound track is really different.

    Sorry, but my memory is that of an old person and it's now been almost two weeks since the most recent episode has aired.... However, if you go to the Tunefind web page you may get enough description to get your answer.

    Episode 10 Hairdos and Holidays was the last one until January and was an episode that provided a critical backstory that will help make the show work. It also had some great music including some Christmas songs:

    • A Place Only You Can Go by NEEDTOBREATHE, a haunting song from a great album by an American rock band from Seneca, South Carolina, that has charted on mainstream rock/pop charts, though they have had their greatest number of singles on Christian music charts.
    • Ho Hey by The Lumineers, a group whose debut (Self-Titled) album will be released in March 2012 offer Americana-inflected barnburners and slow, sultry ballads that suggest the raw revelations; this song is not available though a video is available on their website.
    • Lonesome Goes Both Ways by Adam Zelkind & Hannah Aldridge is not available; this is another one of those "who are these people?!!"; Aldridge does have a website and a really outstanding YouTube official video ; Zelkind has a huge listing on IMDb of credits as a TV songwriter and has won ASCAP Awards for Most Performed Themes and Underscores and BMI Cable Award.
    • Lost In My Mind by The Head and the Heart, an indie folk-pop band from Seattle, Washington, in 2011 Seattle's City Arts Magazine named them "Seattle's Best New Band", and the band made their network television debut on April 21, 2011 on Conan.
    Christmas songs:
    • Away In A Manger by High Valley, an award winning Canadian country music group from Blumenort, Alberta.
    • Blue Christmas by Julie Roberts, an American country music singer with a number of Country chart releases.
    • Jingle Bell Rock by Rascal Flatts, the multiple award winning, multiple platinum album, Columbus, Ohio, American country music band.
    • Jinglin' Jingle Bell by Jessica Campbell, a pop singer from Catawba, North Carolina, who while attending college contiued writing songs, recording, performing at Dollywood (Dolly Parton’s theme park), singing song demos, leading music at church, and touring.
