Last night, we watched the next to last installment of Ken Burn’s Country Music.
We’d already watched the last one out of order.
It ends in 1996, and hopefully, there will be more ……. https://www.pbs.org/kenburns/country-music/
Undoubtedly….Country Music is the heartbeat of America.
The people who listen to country music ARE the people who are keeping this country going.
They go to work every day. They experience life, often at its worst.
I am certain that this is why this music has lasted so long.
So, where does this put all other forms of music ?
I was particularly amused when they told about Willy Nelson’s Stardust album….
Undoubtedly, for every country star and song featured in this series…
There were thousands …. Unfairly left out.
I’m not complaining…there was only so much time….
A bunch of people had to be left out….
If you’re still in the rat race….
There’s no time for music like there used to be.
Everything is just moving too fast.
In my work, I spend most of my time in front of a computer screen.
A couple of times a day.. I take a break and look to see what’s on YouTube….
There are a couple of cooking guys that I like.
I watch them.
Nothing’s like it used to be…but, food can be as good as it ever was… and better.
We work hard and eat good…
We have a great view of the moon at our house at night….
Where’d the summer go?
We were out in the convertible with the top down only twice this summer.
We have a crazy dog that gets most of our attention….
I take 10 pills a day.
Jackee needs another hip to be replaced…
I haven’t heard a good new song in ages…..
I know that plenty of them are out there…….
Here’s that last one that I’ve heard….
And, that was 10 years ago ?????
