...like the ground i grew up on.

on the reel... {you get it?} seeing this movie {country strong} reminded me of reasons why i can love country music. deep, deep down it's there inside of me. it was the music i grew up listening to and singing. it's almost like it runs through my blood, through every family memory. the stories told in the music were lived out in pike county by those i love most. for that reason- i can't help but love the honest, hard workin' man and the folks that sing about him. after all, those people are my people.

this post is dedicated to my grandparents, gene and lou emma green.
where there is love {as thick as mud},
there is art.
