This Friday's song is actually four songs by Christine McVie of Fleetwood Mac. "Everywhere" was a good choice, but I had to share a couple more. I've had "crushes" on both Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie over the years. These songs were a memorable part of my life's journey. Hope you enjoy.
This Friday's song is "How You Make a Man" by Craig Morgan. I have been taking some time to reflect over the long Thanksgiving weekend. As I think about what I am most grateful for in my life today, I realize how some of the hardest and most painful experiences in my life helped to shape me and make all of that possible. I thought this song says it much better than I ever could.
I chose "There Goes My Life" by Kenny Chesney for this Friday's song. This has been on my playlists since it was first released in October 2003. This week my son Ryan received his "first" paycheck from his new job. I am one very proud father!
Today is Veterans Day here in the United States. It is a day for all Americans to honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. I chose "Letters from Home" by John Michael Montgomery to commemorate that.Hope you can take a few minutes today to listen and reflect. If you know a veteran, pick up the phone and thank them for their service.
This Friday's song is "Be Still My Soul" sung by Tami Neilson and Don McGlashan. This hymn is over 250 years old. When two incredible talents like these bring it to life, I think it speaks a truth that is as relevant as the day the words were first penned.
This Friday's song is "Human" by Cody Johnson. This song reflects Johnson's East Texas roots and classic country style. It brings back lots of memories from my time living in Houston, Austin, and Dallas. Hope you enjoy!
This Friday's song is "Better Days" by the Goo Goo Dolls. I don't have a lot of post-2000 pop songs in my collection. This one is because it helped me through one of the hardest fights of mu life. Hope you enjoy.
This Friday's song is "I Found You" by Nate Smith. Smith has a compelling personal story and a unique style. I thought this song which blends the themes of redemption and "timing" was very well done.
It has been a very difficult time for so many people across Florida since Ian slammed into the coast and then cut a path across our beautiful state. Lives have been lost, homes destroyed and businesses ruined. When this new song by Larry Fleet and Zach Williams came up in my YouTube feed yesterday, I thought it was the perfect choice for this Friday's song. It is a reminder that with faith, hope, and love, we can overcome anything. I hope you enjoy "This Too Shall Pass."
Discovered this version of the St. James Infirmary Blues by Hopetoun Brown while I was learning more about Tami Neilson. She is featured in this version along with Finn Scholes and Kingsley Melhuish. It is a great rendition of this classic song.
This Friday's song is "Here Comes the Sun" by the Beatles. This song has always been about "beginnings" for me. I am starting a new gig next week and thought it would be a good choice. I picked the 2019 video mix which is pretty true to the original recording. Hope you enjoy!
This Friday's song is "If I Were Your Lover" by Kip Moore. This new song has a solid, uptempo beat that is classic Kip Moore. The video features Morgan Wade. It is pretty "steamy" and a bit dark for a Moore video.
