Just today I heard Suzy Bogguss singing "There's a young man that I know....." Ian wrote that song, and it has put plenty of jingly in his jeans. His cowboy songs are all just top of the line.
Other favorite singers are Johnny Horton, Billy Walker, Connie Francis, Emmy Lou Harris, Ray Price, R.W. Hampton, and the Sawmill Creek Band. I like to listen to the piano playing of Floyd Cramer and Frank Mills, and Lloyd Green can put chills down your spine when he lets loose with a steel guitar.
Good music and good books are truly the spice of life.
