I’m on vacation, spending a few days with my parents, who live very far away but whom I see a few times a year. We’ve talked a bit about country music and the artists that some purists complain about. Like Ronnie Milsap.
It’s pretty country, isn’t it? Not exactly like this.
See that strings section? Nonetheless, I personally believe that is still good music. Just like much of Kenny Rogers’ music wasn’t hardcore country, but was pretty good.
Listen to those background vocals. Recognize them? (Hint: Barry Gibb wrote this song.)
And speaking of pop music’s infiltration of country music, this one is still one of my favorites.
Love that. Love that a lot.
More soon. Maybe after I return from vacation.
