The lyrics take us on a journey of the destruction of natural habitat, financial gain, the devastation of the Seminole Indian people and progress.
Country music is close to my heart and this week I give you a good old fashioned drinking song released in 1980 and a fun fantasy song released in 1999. The first is about love that doesn’t exist anymore and the second is about a guy who uses the sex appeal of his tractor to get the girl.
The song I chose this week is “In Color” by Jamey Johnson. This song is a tribute to the generation of people that were my grandparents.
“All the Gold in California was written by Larry Gatlin , released in August, 1979 and reached #1 on the US Hot Country Songs and #2 on the Canadian RPM Country tracks.
This week I chose “The Snake Song” by Billy Gilman. The lyrics are quite quirky!
This week I chose 2 songs. The first one is by Eels called “I Like Birds”. The second one is “Bird Dog” by The Everly Brothers. Two very different songs but I couldn’t make up my mind.
Husbands and Wives is a mid-tempo waltz in the key of C major. It is about a couple who is breaking up. With both parties having too much pride in themselves to reconcile.
No artist has ever written with conviction as Merle Haggard. His songs project his feelings at the time they were written. The lyrics to “Today, I Started Loving You Again” was a “love at first site” but with a broken heart that had healed and then reminded of the love that was lost but still there after putting eyes on that past lover.
I chose “Boondocks” by Little Big Town. This song is relatable to me! I was born in a small town in Texas and learned to play cards and dominos at a young age. When I stayed with my grandparents in the country on the weekends, we would get up and go to church on Sunday morning.
Elvis Presley may be known as the “King of Rock n’ Roll”, but George Strait is known as the “King of Country”. He is the most influential and popular recording country music artist of all time. He is a real Texas cowboy who just happens to be able to stand at a microphone and put the country roots into any song he can get his hands on.
