This Memorial Day, I honor the one soldier that I knew and loved the best, my Granddaddy, James Luther. He didn’t die at war. He didn’t give the ultimate sacrifice. And he’s been gone nearly 15 years. But he is who I remember and today he is who I honor.
“Some Gave All” by Billy Ray Cyrus
“Downtown” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis
As promised last week, mine and Joshimus Rex’s current jam.
“Fast Cars and Freedom” by Rascal Flatts
Today I was going to share mine and Sir Joshimus’s current obsession song, but as he was getting ready for work, he turned and looked at me and told me, “You don’t look a day over fast cars and freedom.” So, through tears of love, I had to go listen to this song and decided to share it with y’all today. I’ll go ahead and set up the other one for next week for you guys.
“Misty Mountain Cold” from The Hobbit
When The Lord of the Rings came out, I was actually not familiar with it so I learned the story through the movies first, and then through the books. I had read The Hobbit and loved the story of Bilbo Baggins, so the story of his nephew, Frodo, was easy for me to get excited about. But The Hobbit was always my favorite story.
“I and Love and You” by The Avett Brothers
Our cousin Sharon and her new man introduced Sir Joshimus and I to the Avett Brothers while we were visiting and I really enjoy their music. I haven’t nerded out on them quite yet, but they are now on my list.
“Angel” by Sarah McLachlan, with Pink
This is one of the most amazing things I’ve heard in a while.
“Just a Kiss” by Lady Antebellum
“Ring of Fire” as done by Home Free ft Avi Kaplan
Yes, again. Love these guys!
“Cruel to be Kind” by Letters to Cleo
This would be the version from 10 Things I Hate About You. I love that movie.
