With the Labor Day Holiday upon us I thought it would be quite appropriate to break out a tune for this week's edition of Flashback Friday for all the hard working folks out there. This week we go back 20 years to 1992 for Travis Tritt's Top 5 hit "Lord Have Mercy On The Working Man".
It's not unusual to see a well known artist break out a cover song at one of their shows. Most of the time when it's done though, it is usually an older song by an artist that inspired the singer covering it.
This past Saturday was one of the best days of my life. It all started out with skydiving for Make A Wish Of Northeast NY(Photos and video of that to follow in the next few days). Then wrapped up with our GNA Summer Picnic where I had the opportunity to do something that I love to do, SING! I want to thank all the members of Skeeter Creek for inviting me up on stage with them.
Today one of the member's of the female trio SHeDAISY, Kristyn Osborn celebrates her 42nd birthday. So, I decided to freature the lovely ladies in this week's edition of Flashback Friday. We go back to the late nineties, 1999 to be exact for their very first single, "Little Goodbyes".
We are just a few short days away from the GNA Summer Picnic and I am excited! I am always up for a good ol' fashioned party and this one looks to be a great one. The weather is supposed to be perfect so there is no reason not to have some fun with GNA.
On August 21st, 1961 Patsy Cline recorded one of her biggest hits "Crazy". The song , written by Willie Nelson was both a country and adult contemporary hit peaking at #2 on both of those charts and peaked at #9 on the pop charts.
With the song's genre bending chart success, it has also been covered by many artitsts of different genres from country, pop and alternative.
Yesterday (8/16) was the 35th anniversary of the death of the King of Rock And Roll Elvis Presley. In honor of that I thought I would showcase an Elvis classic that was also a hit for Dwight Yoakam. In this weeks edition of Flashback Friday we go back to 1987 for Dwight's version of "Little Sister".
I have heard many different versions of our National Anthem. Obviously I have heard people sing it whether it be very good or god awful. I have heard a number of great guitar players do some great renditions of it. I even was at a baseball game many years ago where a champion whistler whistled the song. Now here's a version I don't think I have ever heard before, a Red Bull Formula 1 race car being revved up to play the "Star Spangled Banner".
Earlier today on Twitter I saw a trending hashtag #10FavoriteAlbums and it got me thinking of some of my favorite country albums I have in my vast collection of CD's. Basically any album I can listen the whole way through without skipping any songs deserves to be on my list so here it is for you!
