11/14/17 Old Folks

It’s amazing that these artists who have accomplished everything there is to accomplish in the world of country music are still creating quality music at over 80. Some of the older artists represented on my 2017 New Country Showcase include Bobby Bare (82),  Charley Pride (83), Glen Campbell (who passed away at 81), Willie Nelson (84), Bobby Osborne (turns 86 next month), and Mac Wiseman (92). To put this in proper perspective, the Bristol Sessions were in 1927. Here’s a great duet from last year from Loretta Lynn (who is now 85) and Willie Nelson: Lay Me Down . With all the talk of politics and divisiveness nowadays, it’s refreshing to see these all-time greats find common ground through music.
