Now here is some great country music.
I was listening to CML Radio last week and I’m starting to find some songs that I really enjoy. One of those songs was I’ll Take The Country. Check it out for yourself…
I’ll Take The Country – George Lucas
So that’s I’ll Take The Country from George Lucas.
Yes…I thought that’s a crazy name for anyone to have. The only George Lucas I know is the Star Wars guy, but it works for a great country name too. There are some great Georges in the country world.
The rolling groove of I’ll Take The Country reminds me of the songs from the ’90s that I still love. George’s music reminds me of Doug Supernaw especially and that’s mean to be a huge compliment. I have all of Doug’s albums and I still love playing them. It’s that honky tonk music with plenty of soul and great stories to share. I grew up in a town of 4,000 people. Actually I grew up outside of that little town in what all the kids at school called “the country”.
We had swings in the playground, fields for playing football and baseball, and local hangouts where country music was always on the jukebox. I still remember the things my own dad and mom taught me along the way in those early days. I grew up in the country and I’ll still take it every time in my grown up life. Not too much fasted pace stuff for me.
The kind of country music George Lucas makes is the kind of country I love the most. I love the violin. I love the images he sings about in the song. Growing up in the ’90s had me destined to love this kind of country music and I’ll probably always have a special favor for it the rest of my life.
I love discovering artists like George Lucas. I’m glad he’s out there making great country music and I hope I can check out a live show in the future.
Until then we’ll have to wait to see him on the big stage.
In the meantime have another listen and share your thoughts on the song from this great country singer…
