The old country music of cheating, drinking, working, longing- pre-garth, pre-video, pre-urban-cowboy country music - the voice of working people- people of the land - it is their poetry...country music and king james - the country music cuts the deepest.

My people came from kentucky- poor tobacco farmers of first half 20th century and harlan county coal miners decades ahead of that - descendants of scots & irish - they brought their music with them.

From silver haired daddy to momma's hungry eyes i was baptized in country music - our first vacation (after my dad working in Gary, Indiana steel mills for 6 years) was to nashville, tn. & the grand ole opry we'd been listening to on radio - i got my first instrument at a pawn shop on broadway (1965) the following year, my mom dressed her Kentucky best and marched into the 4 big labels in Nashville (rca, capitol, columbia, decca) and got as far as the desk receptionist to leave a 45 of Wayne Scott & The 3 Ds (my brothers and i were the 3Ds) - i was 7 then - country music was the background music of my childhood.

It is country music how i remember it - with some of the players that made the very music that was both lifting & breaking my heart as a kid - what i find is the country music industry has changed, but country & working people have not changed so much- they still love country music when they hear it - i hope they get to hear this.

A long ride home.
