When it comes to music, there is plenty to choose from
The rebels tend to vie on. Have you ever noticed this with music? Many of the ones who rebel against the standards and “rules” seem to make it further and do bigger and greater things. Just look at Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash music. They refused to conform to a norm. Whether or not their music was completely accepted at the peak of their performing lives is irrelevant. The point is it’s still around today, and always will be. They’re a different breed. They’re the ilk of individuals that movies are made about. Johnny Cash music is bigger than ever today, and much can be attributed to the recent film that told his life story. This certainly increased his audience. On the downside, these films are generally not made until an artist passes on. There have been several made about Elvis Presley.
It’s funny, but I don’t really care for country music. I commonly assume that the artist will have a nasal twang in his/her voice and be singing about a pick-up truck, dead dog, or some soul mate that left them. However, I do enjoy some Johnny Cash music. He has a few tunes that anyone can really relate to. I forget about the country twang and simply enjoy the poignant lyrics.
