More Snow and a New Country Music Artist
It's been crazy. It began snowing last Monday evening a little and the rest came Tuesday. Then the wind blew making blizzard conditions. Then it snowed again. Then it was below zero temperatures.
Interstate 44 was shut down between Springfield and Oklahoma.
Friday into Saturday - another 3 inches. It's been a mess here. Much of the U.S. has been struggling this winter with weather issues.
There is a young man that I know. I know his entire family and most importantly his wife is my hairstylist and an excellent colorist. She is a rock star in my book. Her husband Brad has been singing since he was very young with his sisters. The Praters traveled every weekend to sing Southern Gospel music all over the country. They were incredible.
Brad is now singing solo--Country Music and doing it well.
I like to support all artists. And music is highly important to me. And Brad is a homeboy. And-and-and I wanted to tell you about his new journey.
If you have a minute go to this link listen to his new song Common Man and vote. Artists that are highly rated get radio time.
He's talented and his dream is to have a career as a Country Music singer. I think his song is worth listening to. His website is here in case you want more.
My other blog: The Ruralhood
At The Ruralhood you will get glimpses of rural life past and a little of the present, stories about people, places and behaviors--mostly of me and my youth. The Ruralhood is my journal of rural life (as I see it) for my descendants and others who are interested. I don't want those stories to be lost. This week is a post about my maternal grandmother. She was precious to her very core.
Have a happy week.
