You know, the man had such a glorious and sad life. Beautiful music, but simple. Rejected by Nashville, spurned when he won his CMA award, and a victim of his own fame, he managed to create some stunning images that stay with me today.
The Redneck finally brought back “Rocky Mountain Christmas” from the truck and we’ve been listening to it, The Muppets and John Denver, “Windsong” and “Take Me Home, Country Road”. So, here’s some music. I know some would call him corny. But I don’t care. He’s brilliant. Sometimes the simplest things–a sunset, rain falling, a fire in the fireplace–are the most important things. Enjoy.
This is The Redneck’s Favorite.
And this is mine.
