The International Folk Alliance Conference & Winter Music Camp comes to KC February 19-23. To get you geared up for the folk blowout, every day we're posting a song we like by one of the event's showcase artists. 

The Black Lillies, from Knoxville, Tennessee, are an Americana band for the ages. On the band's August-released full-length Runaway Freeway Blues, lead singer Cruz Contreras, along with the clearheaded vocal harmonies of Trisha Gene Brady, take the listener on a rambling cross-country drive through dusty roads dotted with memories. But songs like "Goodbye Charlie" and "The Fall" sound as good from your spent kitchen speakers as they do from the spotty CD player in your car, so there's no need to embark on a self-designed tour to enjoy the sound of the Black Lillies.
