  1. I grew up being forced to listen to the Opry. I hated it. Now I’ve been twice–once in the old Ryman Auditoreum and once in the new building. The Ryman was indescribably perfect. Like going to church after a long absence and being welcomed home with no judgement.

  2. Like you I, too enjoy jazz and classical but country is my birthright. Your poem reminds me again how much I have to be thankful for. Nice job, my friend!

  3. The music I grew up with was country but just as I have done it has also changed. For me it is hard to relate the country of today to the country of then. I think what helps most is that when the music of today weighs heavy on my sensibilities I can always go back to the old songs: WSM, The Grand Ole Oprey and the Louisiana Hayride are never far from the times I enjoy now.
