The real-life love story of Tim McGraw and Faith Hill — country music’s reigning power couple

There are riches behind the glass displays, including the blonde Gibson guitar given to her by Gram Parsons and a handwritten note that the teenage Harris sent to the editor of a folk music journal. But I much prefer the pre-made-up song. To think of Harris is often to think of her brief but incredibly influential partner in song, the cosmic cowboy Gram Parsons: the man frequently credited with helping give birth to alt-country, influencing artists from Ryan Adams to Wilco.
But Parsons changed all that: recruiting Harris for his touring band, the Fallen Angels, he introduced her to the complex but humanistic language of country. That song, and our harmony, is kind of a pinnacle of our duet-singing together. It contained just one Harris writing credit, Boulder to Birmingham. Composed with Bill Danoff, it helped her work through the loss of Parsons. And everyone has experienced loss, so even though the song is deeply personal, I can understand how people can relate to it, having lost someone who is very close to them.

Of all the things in life that I am looking forward to the most, one day becoming a dad is at the top of my list. One of the people who I look up to most is my dad and if I can become half the man he is then I know that I will make it in this world.

In addition, Country music speaks to the uglier parts of fatherhood like divorce and absenteeism, and the love as well as the fear that comes with raising a child. The ten songs on this list were chosen to represent different aspects of fatherhood. In addition, each song has some sort of lesson or moral in regards to being a father. The majority of Country songs about dads are from the perspective of sons because the majority of Country Music artists are male, but in this classic by Reba McEntire we get the perspective of a daughter growing up with an emotionally unavailable father.
So, fathers, while showing love by providing financially for a family is important, some dads might forget to tell their kids that they love them.

Some versions of the song end here, but Died for Love as performed here by Martin and Eliza Carthy continues, with a verse in which her father enters her bedroom to find her “hanging by a rope”, with a note attached to her chest asking him to bury her with marble stones at her head and feet, with a snow-white dove in the middle, “just to let the world know that I died for love.

The Hottest Couples in Country Music Right Now
David McClister. Old Yellow Moon is just one in a long string of duet discs from Emmylou Harris. I started as a harmony singer, that was his way to kind of sneakily turn me onto this extraordinary body of music, and in singing country music I really found the place that my voice was supposed to be. Emmylou Harris is fond of telling a story about the time in the ’60s when she wrote a six-page letter to folk icon Pete Seeger, asking him whether she could authentically sing his style of music if she didn’t come from a truly rustic, hardscrabble background.
Seeger wrote back, telling her that she shouldn’t worry about suffering, life will happen and there’s nothing she can do about it. The earnestness and authenticity that a young Emmylou expressed in that letter says an awful lot about Harris as a singer, one of country music’s all-time greats.

This record is designed to disarm the listener of any previous perceptions they may have had of Brett Kissel and his music. As the only Canadian to ever tour with Garth Brooks, one of planet earth’s top selling artists, Kissel notes, “Playing with Garth is impossible to effectively describe. I really appreciate his willingness to take me under his wing and teach me so much about what it means to be an entertainer in this business. With the arrival of his second blonde-topped daughter, while surrounded by so much support – Kissel’s approach to music creation has a new sound and a maturity only found when life ripens with busy-ness and babies.
Kissel has evolved immensely by using his unique charisma to share and connect with his audience. I also have the land coordinates of both my grandfather’s cattle ranches tattooed above my heart; they’re always with me,” Kissel added. True, Brett Kissel is often far from the grounding cattle-ranch-lands of his childhood home in Flat Lake, Alberta, as he and his crew of award winning and mad-skilled band mates continue to tour coast-to-coast-to-coast.
