For spring break, I drove from Maryland to Indiana to visit my son and family. There is nothing better than visiting family; especially when that family includes your grandbaby. As I drove back to Baltimore, from Indiana, I thought that I might stop for an overnight rest at my newly acquired hunting cabin.
Even though I was tired from the drive, and a bit sad about leaving family behind, I felt my spirits picking up as I drove the curving and scenic roads of West Virginia. The sun was low and I'd be arriving at The Shack just at sunset. I was looking forward to starting a fire in the wood stove and snuggling in a sleeping bag and relaxing for a night before finishing the long drive to Baltimore. Then this new-to-me song started to play and I cranked it up.
The music and lyrics are not complex. In fact, they are a bit more repetitive than I usually like. But there is something moving about the song. I think because it speaks to country living and not just loving each day, but loving... every day. I look forward to when I'm able to replace the words with rockin' on my porch, pullin' weeds, and diggin' in the garden. Or milkin' goats and feedin' chickens.
Luke Bryan and Kill The Lights Tour
As soon as I returned home, I looked up the song. I found that it is a track from the Kill The Lights album. There are other songs on the album I am familiar with and love. This is one of those rare albums that I'd buy for the entire album, not just one song.
AND more good news, the Kill the Lights Tour begins in April 2016 and comes to areas near me - Charleston, West Virginia and Baltimore, Maryland!
