You can go to Bob Schneider's website and listen to his most recent record, Burden of Proof, and his sometimes fatalistic track-by-track commentary. There, you'll learn that sometimes people laugh when he plays the record's plaintive second track, "I Wish the Wind Would Blow Me." He's okay with that. He gets it. He put the joke in there. But it really is a pretty little lament that just happens to have an oral sex joke in it. Schneider's put out piles of records since the early '90s; Hayes Carll works slower. Carll released his debut in 2002 and has since put out three more. Each has been great, and his last one, 2011's KMAG YOYO, was his best. He can be funny, too. "I'm like James Brown, only white and taller," in "Stomp and Holler," for example. RYAN WHITE
