Where did the country go?

I remember a time when I was young I listened to the saddest song on the radio A country tale that touched the soul Steel guitar weaving a tapestry of emotion   As the drums gently propel us on A violin haunts the air To the theme of a guitar strum   A simple voice... Continue Reading →
