Tom T. Hall (1936-2021)
Full lyrics HERE.
There’s no one genre of music I prefer over another. When a song packs an emotional punch, that’s what attracts me. Tom T. Hall was a master at that.
There’s a nice write up of the man and his career posted to Variety, which you can read HERE. Here’s an quote from that article I thought was particularly nice:
“The first guy who came up with a religion was sitting out under a tree by himself. So I thought the best way to get a real good religion is to go out and sit under a tree by yourself and let it all happen. … Great idea. So, I have a weird kind of religion. But I guess it’s a good one. I’m gonna find out some day.”
