Life, as I see it, is a series of evolutions, I'm not talking Darwin here. Here's what I mean.
When you were a child, there were probably things you absolutely refused to eat, say broccoli for example. Then for whatever reason you tried it at some later point in your life and, lo and behold, you liked it. Or maybe, you weren't a person that liked to exercise but now you do. You've evolved.
One of my life evolutions has to do with music.
When I was a child the music I heard at my home was classical, big band and traditional Mexican folk songs sung by mariachi bands. I liked them, till I became a teen. As a teen I continued to listen to the aforementioned and added Top Forty music. In college, I added jazz to the repertoire. There was, however, one genre that I swore I would NEVER listen to. Country.
I loathed it. I made fun of it. I couldn't change the radio station fast enough. Then I moved to Texas where every other station is a country music station. The kicker though was when Daughter dated a guy, this guy, that was an avid country fan. Since he listened to it, Daughter listened to it, and by default I began to listen to it. It grew on me. Now I have not one, not two, but three pre-sets on my car radio that are country music stations.
If you're like I me and are a fan of country music, I'd like for you to watch this video. If you're like I was and don't like country music, you still may want to watch it because at the end of this post you're in for a treat.
This guy is family, albeit a long way down the line but still family. Unlike my family, Husband's extended, way down the line extended, family is close, which can be good and bad. We gather for birthdays, holidays, get-together-because-we-can days and sometimes, some get into each other's business, if you get my drift...it keeps life interesting when they do!
Adam's entire family is musically talented. Every Christmas Adam and his family would go to various homes and sing Christmas songs, harmonizing while his dad played his guitar. It was so wonderful, I always looked forward to their Christmas visits, it made the holiday seem complete.
Adam's talent has always shined. At the ripe old age of fourteen, or was it, fifteen, or was it, aah no matter, he was young, he could sound like ol' Blue Eyes. He's always had a goal to become a recording artist. Hopefully, he's close to reaching his goal.
To celebrate Adam's video, I'm going to have a giveaway. Adam doesn't know I'm doing this, it's my small way of helping him along. Though I don't have the followers of PW, if I tell you and then you tell a couple more, and then they tell a couple of more, pretty soon Adam will have his video all over the place. Here's what I'm giving away: an 8GB iPod Nano with multi-touch, go here for all the mumbo-jumbo on the specs of the 8GB iPod Nano and a ten dollar iTunes gift card.
YES! you say. Okay, click on the giveaway tab for all the particulars.
