Even with his debatable hot pink, silky, embroidered cowboy/Japanese shirt from 1981, John Denver did not let me down last night. He was one of four national music choices for last nights Soundcheck episode and psss! I voted. For him. Maybe, like a few times. After all, he is my granola boyfriend. I know, people my age maybe shouldnt still play pretend/live in fantasyland but I did for an hour last night….such a pure, timeless voice that does what music is supposed to invoke calm, peaceful, happy memories of particular times in childhood (p.s. my mother, too, pretended he was her boyfriend as Annies song and Follow Me (why doesnt everyone play this at their wedding?) resonated throughout the house on Saturday morning). His voice and song lyrics take me to another place….I dont know, like a mountain with some sunshine with eagles flying overhead? OOH I couldnt wait for 9 p.m. last night. Maybe one of our band choices for next week does the same thing for you…all local Arkansas favorites who have played in our own AETN studios.
