Music Mantra Monday - Keeping Eyes On Old Town Road
Welcome to our Monday segment.
I'm very excited to be able to be back in the running with our posts as most of you know, this is one of my favorite posting days.
Last week, my husband was listening to a song and made me give it a listen too. He came to me during the rap part so I really wasn't interested. It's not that I don't like rap, but more that it just isn't my musical preference. But he said, "Hun...listen to this. Guess who this is."
I listened for a few seconds and responded with, "He sounds like a lot of the rappers out there right now."
He shoved his phone closer to my ear and said, "Not the rapper, hun. The singer."
And he sounded so familiar. I finally asked and when he told me this is Billy Ray Cyrus, my chin almost hit the floor. I have to say, I was very pleasantly surprised. I like Garth Brooks, Rascal Flatts...you know the more rock country types. But I also enjoy the oldies, especially Johnny Cash. But this truly surprised me.
And the message in this song is so powerful.
What it shows is that music can bring together different elements of music, different genres of music, very different people and make it a piece of art.
And that's why I love it so much.
