Sunday Morning Coming Down

More Country this week; I hope you trust me with these by now.

Today’s choice comes from one of the most culturally important Country recording stars ever, and it just so happens to have been his 82nd birthday last Friday. (It’s on occasions like this that I really miss the excellent and sadly missed blog “Jim McLean’s Rabbit”. Those that used to visit will understand.)

Country music is often referred to as “the white man’s blues”, and a cursory look through the history books pretty much confirms it to be a white male dominated music scene.

That was until this chap came along:

Charley Pride – Is Anybody Goin’ To San Antone?

Happy (belated) birthday, Charley.

More soon.

    ONLY country music has such splendid lyrics. Quality song, that might very well be sung to the dogs this afternoon!
