1928 - Alderson High School - 1968




Rick Hughes - October 9, 2012

I have always loved old time country music, such as Hank Williams, Charley Pride, Bob Wiles, Little Jimmy Dickens, Johnny Horton, Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, and Red Solvine. The newer country does not captivate me. Religious or spiritual songs I love Amazing Grace, and How Great Thou Art. I must also confess opera is interesting and dare I say enjoyable, although outside of Batovan, I know nothing! I have found a new stimulating music, which for me is enormously enjoyable. Irish music is absolutely fascinating. It could be a second cousin to country music, in that it covers some of the same topics. The fight for life, the incredible adventures of life, Everything from heartbreak, love, death, war, drinking, fighting, poverty, and survival. Irish music has an almost uniformly beautiful powerful, appropriate voice. The singers seem to both relax and inspire at the same time. Should you come into contact with Irish music, try it, I think you will enjoy it.
