Music Monday has been on a bit of a hiatus again…. By nature, I do not think of music as essential art form for me. I am always in the mood for poetry, or fiction, or even a trip to an art museum. But music is something I find I can go for long stretches without… but not forever. So maybe it is essential for me after all. That is probably why I keep returning to Music Monday here.
When I am in the mood for music, my first choice is country… real country. Not to sound like an old man (but hell, I guess I am) Waylon, Johnny, Willie, Hank, Sr & Jr., George, and Merle are real country music. What’s played on country music stations today is just something you find in piles on the ground in cow pastures.
This has long been one of my favorite Waylon tunes. It seems like a perfect way to kick of the return of Music Mondays and the last week of February.
