The Pitch Music Awards Show is at the Uptown Theater this Sunday, August 3, and hosted by World Air Guitar Champion Eric "Mean" Melin and Mills Record Co.'s Judy Mills (tickets here). To count down to the awards ceremony - and help introduce you to this year's picks - we're debuting a "song of the day" each weekday until the show from one of this year's batch of nominees.

When John Velghe released his latest album, Organ Donor Blues, last month, we sat down and played it cool, like maybe the tracks on that record weren't some of the finest examples of Americana we'd heard 'round these parts in a while. But it's not surprising: Velghe is a student of Alejandro Escovedo (who played on Organ Donor Blues), and everything on his new record is absolutely deliberate. Case in point: Velghe's "On the Interstate." Listen below and try not to nod along to Velghe's easy, open-road melody.
