Most days you can find me working away at the computer with my music set to random.
There is a lot of different country music on the list and you never know what’s going to come up.
Recently, a classic country song came up and I had to smile. That was after I caught myself singing along to this incredible melody.
Common Man – John Conlee
You can’t beat a country song like this. The melody is so catchy. The images in the song are simple and pure. It’s something a lot of us can relate to. Just a person getting through life with not much more than a good truck and a good dog.
For some that’s all you need to be happy along with good family and friends.
I have John Conlee’s Classics album. It has all his hits on it from the biggest one Rose Colored Classes all the way songs like Busted and Old School. You can listen to the whole record and realize just how big John Conlee was during his run on the charts.
And the really cool thing is that his music is just as great today as it was back then. The songs are great examples of how country music can live on for generations.
At least generations of the common man.
