I have been searching for the last few weeks to find an adequate and true response to the question, “What do you “do”, Barry?”, as asked by Andrea Porter, wife of Bo Porter, world-renowned, local country artist, here in Austin, Texas.
I have recorded long lists of songs that I have never heard versions of before, including a list of 30+ songs Willie Nelson had covered, that I had not yet heard and recorded. I think it’s kinda fun.
This song, covered by Alan Jackson, is one of those. It was written by Tim Johnson, and I had not heard either version, before I began to learn it yesterday.
