And here is a little note from the music man himself:
Song, music and the written word… it’s a powerful medium to convey thoughts, feelings, or pretty much any emotion. Everyone has a song that takes them back to a simpler time, a lost love, heartbreak, or whatever. It makes you feel nostalgic, angry, happy, gets you in the “party mode”, it makes you laugh or cry. So, in keeping with the theme of this blog (kind of), and Jen’s anxiety about turning 30, I have pulled a few songs off the shelf to try to make a few points; 1) turning 30 is not that big of a deal, 2) life is an adventure, enjoy the ride, and 3) it’s not the destination, it’s the journey that matters.
The first song in the list comes from the “Greatest Hits” album of Gary Allan, “A Feeling Like That” a song that everyone can relate to during some point in their life, and the inspiration for the tag line of this blog.
Second, “This Time Around”, Randy Rogers Band, not because it has anything to do with turning 30, but it tells a story that many know, and, I’ve heard its Jen’s favorite song.
Third on the list, “My Next 30 Years” Tim McGraw, enough said!
Fourth, “Troubadour” George Strait, it’s not where you’re at, but how you got there.
And last but not least, “The Road Goes on Forever” Robert Earl Keen… and the party never ends!
So, this is the first playlist for the “Almost Gypsy Soul” that is Jen Dutton, hope you enjoy it, if you don’t, I guess it will be the last.
Peace and Love, Peace and Love…
