Oxford American magazine has released its 6th music issue, which includes a 23-track CD. The effort of collecting and compiling that many songs may seem like a strange choice for "the southern magazine of good writing," but editor Marc Smirnoff says it's actually quite natural. American music comes from the South, Smirnoff tells Steve as they highlight some of the tracks.
