Rodney Atkins, “These Are My People”
Fantastic. I thought it was going to be another carbon-copy celebration of southern hillbilly culture, but after a few lines of that, reality kicks in, and the celebration is of the everyday life, complete with mistakes and screw-ups along the way.
I’m a city guy, but this is one of those rare celebrations of small-town life that makes it actually sound somewhat appealing to me. This guy is good. Very, very good.
