If any of you are looking for a new theme song for the new year, try John Fullbright's "All That You Know."  http://youtu.be/osqWXtZ_Pv0  
Here is a great article about John in Rolling Stone:

My friend, Vicki Farmer, John's media manager, turned me on to his music, and I will be forever grateful to her for this.   I am crazy about this kid's music....and he IS still a kid.  Can't wait to see what he does as he matures.  He's GREAT!!!   His first studio album, "From the Ground Up", received a Grammy nomination in the category Best Americana Album. He has been the subject of two segments on NPR [2][3] and was a 2012 winner of ASCAP Foundation's Harold Adamson Lyric Award.

John hales from Oklahoma (where I am from originally).  The lyrics are profound and bring me to tears every time I hear them.  His career has really taken off over the last few years, much to my delight.  In 2014, John played 130+ shows in 30 states, 3 Canadian provinces, 7 countries in the UK/EU, and a boat. There was a new album, a bunch of radio appearances, CBS This Morning, The Late Show With David Letterman, BBC radio and television, and some really kind articles in the press.

It was just two years ago that John released ‘From The Ground Up’ to a swarm of critical acclaim. The LA Times called the record “preternaturally self-assured,” while NPR hailed him as one of the 10 Artists You Should Have Known in 2012, saying “it’s not every day a new artist…earns comparisons to great songwriters like Townes Van Zandt and Randy Newman, but Fullbright’s music makes sense in such lofty company.” The Wall Street Journal crowned him as giving one of the year’s 10 best live performances, and the album also earned him the ASCAP Foundation’s Harold Adamson Lyric Award. If there was any doubt that his debut announced the arrival of a songwriting force to be reckoned with, it was put to rest when ‘From The Ground Up’ was nominated for Best Americana Album at the GRAMMY Awards, which placed Fullbright alongside some of the genre’s most iconic figures, including Bonnie Raitt.
