I can’t stop listening to this pretty song. Merle’s the coolest. Realizing more and more what a sucker I am for that cheesy early eighties country production. Lefty Frizzell wrote this one, and Willie Nelson recorded another great version on this To Lefty from Willie album. But I like Merle’s version best.

Hey, I kinda wish I could just wear western wear all the time. Like, pull it off in full, not just little bits here and there.

Happy Sunday 😊

One of my most recent life goals is to embrace my hat. And now that I know it’s like an extra cool brand I think I’ll be more inclined. Cool!!

So I have this cool hat and I just barely looked at the label. It’s a Rockmount. Cool huh.

Totally obsessed with this album and Skeeter Davis and the producing genius of Chet Atkins. It doesn’t always sound much like country, but man, it sounds good. Who’da thought this song could sound like this?

I took a closer look at this album cover today and realized I’ve been subconsciously dressing like Gram. And that made me pretty excited.

Going back to Music City this morning. I’ve been such the jet setter lately!
