Because of our recent, devastating loss, my baby Sis (59) has been spending time at my home. She is a C&W aficionado and, because I’ve always been her slave, DH and I have been tuning our satellite system to her preferred stations. Keep in mind that I love all music (primarily classic and rock ‘n roll), and though I’ve never disparaged C&W, it’s on the low end of my audio totem pole.
What an eye-opener (or, should I say, ‘ear opener’?), to discover melodious, heartfelt and poignant tunes that were both distracting and downright comforting. Yes, Dolly Parton, Ronnie Milsap, Garth Brooks and others, you ROCK!
Proving, once again, that one should keep oneself open to new experiences. I just bought myself a ‘Dolly Parton’ CD and already know all the words to ‘Here You Come Again.’ It's difficult to blubber when singing, out of tune, to a great song!
