Local folk standout Courtney Marie Andrews has made a song from her new album -- which will be availible July 31. "The Buffalo and the Bird" is one of a few songs I really like on her sophomore effort, Painters Hand and Seventh Son, so be sure to check it out. You might also want to check out Courtney's take on Lucinda Williams' "Right In Time" for The Sun Sessions.
