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 tells the truth

With authentic beauty

And I connect

For those few minutes I share the pain

And my heart is better for it


Then, time passes

I turn on the radio again

And wonder

Where did the country go?



Speaking of good country music, check out the new video from my worship leader & friend from church Crystal Yates. You should go get her EP, it is genuinely the best collection of country music that I have bought this year 🙂
