Hello again constant reader/listener. They say April showers bring May flowers, but if my rain dances don’t start working it’s going to be a long summer, so everyone start rain dancing. Oh, I’m supposed to do some kind of playlist thing, right? Ok, ok!
I was told that I cannot disappoint this month, because last month was a big hit. Yet still, I am getting off the red dirt road and heading in a different direction, so don’t hate, just accept.
This is the time of year that farmers and ranchers start to think about getting some crops in the ground and praying for rain, unless you live in western Wyoming, we can hold off on that thinking for a few more weeks. Ranchers have calves on the ground and will soon be heating up the branding irons and sending the cows to the spring/summer range. So, this playlist is dedicated to the hard working men and women of the agricultural community.
First is a song that was written after a Farm Aid concert; The Rain Came Down, Steve Earle
Next, I bring you a song from Wyoming’s own; Six Bucks a Day, Chris Ledoux
The third song on this list; Amarillo Sky, Jason Aldean
The fourth song in the lineup is a good ole cowboy song; Night Riders Lament, Garth Brooks
In keeping with the “rain theme” here, the next song; Rain is a Good Thing, Luke Bryan
Ok, ok, you crazy Red Dirt listeners, I’ll throw one at you to keep you happy; Once a Cowboy, Gabe Garcia
So, there it is, Pray for rain and hope that there is something for the livestock to eat this summer, I’m hungry.
