Country Time

Tomorrow I have to get up for work at 3am and right now for an early morning board meeting, and with as tired as I feel right now, the brain isn't functioning anywhere near peak performance, so the subject I was going to hit on will have to wait.

Instead, I want to take time to the few who read my blog for the time spent at good old My Friend Ivan, and for reciprocating the blogger relationship by providing stimulating, funny, humbling, convicting, and downright human to the core posts that I enjoy reading every day. Finally, I have found a truly enjoyable online activity besides gambling.

I have a request. As of later I have been getting into country music; not the Achey Breaky modern stuff, but the old gospel influenced stuff. I've made a few rudimentary songs of my own, but would like to broaden my horizons. Any suggestions?

a lot of times bluegrass will overlap. my grandma's from "the hills a' kentucky" and "church a' god" so we sing some great old tunes when we get together.
Try the Marshall Family, The Carter Family, Bill Monroe & Doc Watson. Earl Scruggs & The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.
Enjoy. I don't have them all but watch any CMT special on the start of country music & you'll hear their names.
