Coming Home Playlist

Here is the music that is the backdrop to my “Frankie’s Homecoming” novel. This playlist turned out to be very eclectic when you take into account the musical tastes of the two main characters (one’s very country, and the other’s into classic rock). I selected tracks based on various topics: character favorite artists, coming home/home towns, rodeos/cowboys, finding love, family and hope. I usually let it run on iTunes shuffle while I write, so I should be set. Happy listening!
