This Song – Not Just for July 4th

Last October Chuck and I waited excitedly for our copy of Closer Than Together on vinyl to arrive. I’d heard a few songs ahead of time, others were brand new the first time we listened. Some songs took a while to grow on me, but I came to love them all, with New Woman’s World being the exception. But, a few packed a real punch. Like We Americans. The more I listened, the more I loved it. A few weeks after our record arrived, we got to hear it sung in concert (and sing along)  in Pelham, Alabama. It was powerful.

The music of the Avett Brothers makes me happy and sad all at once. It will forever be their music that brings me back to these last few years Chuck and I had together.

Say Love

  1. Dear Angie,

    The art work of the video is outstanding. Of course the music is heart touching as so many of their songs are. I think the song Love isn’t like the movies has so much truth also. I play it frequently.

    We were watching some videos about Australia the other night and I learned a lot. The song Waltzing Matilda was commemorating The soldiers of WWl and is quite moving.
    But the song I Am Australian was so remindful of our country and her history. It’s lyrics tell the story of the different peoples but how the “many become one”. I Am, You Are, We Are Australian. Please give it a listen.

    Love you dearly,
    Judy
