Some random thoughts on Aug. 16, an infamous day for music fans:
• RIP, Aretha Franklin, and on the anniversary of Elvis' death too. Wow...
• Agree with this statement wholeheartedly: Some days I need the music and some days I need the lyrics. And this song is one of the best examples of that. It's a wonderful tonic for the soul.
• Another music note: If the Dixie Chicks are recording (as has been rumored), I wish they would cover "Young and Angry Again" by Lori McKenna. It’s a great song they could do a lot with from her new album, The Tree.
