This Weeks' Awesome "Nashville" Song
Okay, I like the show, "Nashville". At first, I figured it to be your typical nighttime soap; and yup, it's a soap, but I don't necessarily think it's typical. It's the music, stupid (I admonish myself).
It's the story, too, though. Connie Britton is a great actress, but I find her character, Rayna, to be supremely unlikeable. Can't blame her husband for wanting to divorce her. Rayna is all about Rayna.
The character I first thought I would thoroughly hate turns out to be the one I like the best; Juliette, played by Hayden Panettiere. She's interesting; and she's confused; and she's finding her way. She's a brat sometimes, but I gradually learned the reasons why.
And granted, not all the music is great. But some of it is. I wait for the great moments. This song is one of those (written by Ashley Monroe and Brendan Benson; performed here by Ashley Monroe):

Well, I did it. Not only did I accomplish the goal of writing 14 songs in 28 days, but I actually wrote 16! So, here you go. They'...
What? Ray Stevens? The guy who did Gitarzan and The Streak? What do you mean, a genius? Isn't he just kind of corny? I sometimes thi...
