Today over at Duward Discussion, Jamie had a unique idea that I just love. Because she doesn’t often comment when she visits blogs, and rarely answers the comments on her own blog, she decided to put videos as “thank you gifts” to folks who had recently commented. She said, “So here are some presents for the most recent visitors who took the time to say hello. I tried to pick videos that in someway matched the profiles from their blogs.” Cool idea, Jamie. If we keep commenting will we get more music?
I was totally tickled that she put up a video for me that included Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings, and my heroes Willie Nelson and the late, great Johnny Cash. Run on over to her site and see what she put up. While you are at it, poke around in the archives. Jamie is the blogger I want to be when I “grow up.”
I have a very diverse musical taste, but I have to admit that Johnny Cash was, and is still, THE MAN. Thank you Jamie, for that gift. Johnny Cash was right “on the money.” You made me hunger to hear some more, so I searched for one of my favorite songs.
My youngest son thought it was humorous to find me playing a video of Johnny Cash (a cover of the Nine Inch Nails song, “Hurt”) and weeping. He never thought his Momma would weep to a song of “his generation.” Well, I fooled him. And, Johnny Cash fooled us. If you think The Man in Black was only country western, think again. I challenge you to watch the following video and not weep. If you can, you have a heart of stone.
