Christian Views on Country Music

Welcome! This is the blog of DaveLoneRanger which entails only his commentary on country music, from a Christian conservative perspective. Thus, he takes a dim view of some songs many consider "staples" of country, such as drinking songs. Ye be warned.

Garth Brooks Releases New Single

Destined for a Top 10 (probably Top 1) position, country king Garth Brooks took a respite from his temporary semi-retirement (as he has been known to do from time to time, such as with "Good Ride, Cowboy" and "Love Will Always Win") to release a new single entitled "More Than A Memory" which debuted today on AfterMidnite with Blair Garner. The song was played twice last night, and has been making the rounds of local stations since.

What can we say about Garth? Whether or not you approve of certain songs (such as "That Summer" about a young man who works for a weathered older widow's farm and becomes involved in a sexual relationship with her, or the rough-n-rowdy party-hardy "Ain't Goin' Down ('Til The Sun Comes Up)") or not, there's no doubt that Garth sings and performs with unparalleled energy and enthusiasm, and his efforts have earned him a spot in country music history.
