The Most Genuine Country Song from the Least Likely Songwriter
I stumbled across this beautiful story today -- a story of a 96 year old man mourning the loss of his wife right before their 73rd anniversary. To cope with this loss, he wrote a song about her entitled 'Sweet Loraine' and entered it into a singer/songwriter competition.
This man had no previous musical experience, but used an outlet we are all familiar with to divulge 72 years worth of love and emotion into one song.
Music has a voice, y'all.
