|Howdy, I'm Fightin' Texas Aggie Colt, Class of 2014!
My life is defined on account of 3 things:
Music is such a huge part of our lives on account of it can change the way we think, feel, and love in a matter of just a few seconds. Whether we want to be inspired by U2, uplifted by Christian music, happy by Florida-Georgia line, or get in the zone with some rock’n’roll like ACDC or Van Halen, music is the spirit of the world.
- The Almighty God, family, and friends
- A quote: "Every calling is great when every calling is pursued."
Throwback Thursday with George Strait
In honor of throwback Thursday, I wanted to share a very popular song, "Amarillo by Morning," sung by an extremely popular country artist. You may have heard of him, his name's George Strait.
We can all agree that "Amarillo by Morning" is one of the greatest songs ever, yes? Now, what if I told you the King of Country was not the original singer of the smash hit?
That's right, as a matter of fact, the songwriter was the original singer of the song. HIs name... Terry Stafford. That's right! The mind behind the 1964 hit "Suspicion" is the original singer of one of country music's most popular song before King George inherited the lyrics.
Have a listen to the original version sung by Stafford below. Still can't really compare to good ol' George, but you gotta start somewhere!
