I don’t have much time for the corporate kind of country that is played on the radio these days and hence almost never listen to country radio. But my iPod is mostly country music: Willie, Waylon, Johnny, George, Merle, Hank Sr., Hank Jr. It is the music that is closest to my heart probably because it is the music I grew up with.
The first Monday in 2011 and Willie Nelson and this song are on my mind. I love this video, Willie alone with that famous guitar while country legends sit and watch… wonderful.
If hearing this rendition of “Funny the Way Time Slips Away” don’t get your week and year started right… nothing will.
