James McMurtry, son of famous novelist Larry McMurtry (Lonesome Dove, Terms Of Endearment, etc.), is a fabulous singer/songwriter. He's released eight studio albums so far, and "Candyland" is the title track off the second of these, released in 1992. Apart from being a great song in itself, this one is special because of guitarist David Grissom's frenetic playing. Grissom has also worked with John Mellencamp, Joe Ely, The Allman Brothers and Dixie Chicks among others.
