Happy Memorial Day

I hope you were able to spend the day relaxing with friends and family and took a moment to remember those you've lost, and especially those who have served our country.

I celebrated this year with a road trip to Asheville, NC (more on that tomorrow) and as I drove I listened to Sirius Radio's Highway Country station.  I started listening because Country seem the appropriate type of music for my trip, but I kept listening because of a great program they had going to honor the military men and women.  They invited people all over the country to call in and honor their friends and family who have served.  I loved hearing the stories they told and I loved the great songs Sirius played after each message.

One of my favorite songs was unexpected, a song I'd never heard before, from an artist I've heard of but never spent much time listening too.  However I found myself in tears by the time it was over and decided it was the song I'd share today - David Ball's "Riding with Private Malone."  it is a story song - something that country music was built on, but you don't hear as much anymore.
