Since I was a kid farms have always held a special place in my heart.
Here is a new song from Doug Briney. Watch the video and listen to the song and then let’s discuss.
More Than Just a Farm – Doug Briney
What a great song.
The farm for me was always a place I could learn to become a man. My dad would take me hunting at my uncle’s farm in southwestern Wisconsin. From the time I was about 10, we would go to the farm and mess around scouting for places to deer hunt. There were many great moments on that farm. It was more than just a farm to me and I’m sure it was to the other guys that spent time there over about 15 years.
Today, I still enjoy being near a farm. I spend time each fall at a great place hunting deer and really just messing around. There is something about being outside and with nature that brings out happiness in a guy.
That is my interpretation of Doug Briney’s song, More Than Just a Farm. It’s about the memories and the family you share time with on a family farm. That’s a pretty cool idea for a song and I think this video will find a bigger following over the next few months.
Doug is a country artists from Alaska. That’s right. He’s charting new territory for country music. I’m not sure if any country artists has come from that far north before, but it’s really a great thing. Brantley Gilbert couldn’t have been more right when he sang about country being country wide. I guess it stretches all the way to Alaska and I’m sure around the world.
Doug is a pastor and has been for years. He’s starting to seek out his career in music and many years of singing and performing. I think it’s great that he’s chasing his dream. It’s commendable and I’m pulling for him.
I think he’s off to a great start with More Than Just a Farm. The song means something to me and I guess that makes it more than just another country song.
That’s something special.
