This is some stone country right here. It’s pretty neat to see this kind of music still be created in the world today. You could easily hear some of the greats singing this one back in the ’40s, ’50s and ’60s. Maybe even in the decades after that.
Not so much today. Not in this style. But the theme is one that has been in the veins of country music. And obviously you’ll see that it also has some faith involved.
The artist is Michael Lusk. Brand new to us here at CML, but it looks like he’s well known by his fans. So check this one out and see what you think.
I’m Not The Man I Used To Know – Michael Lusk
I believe what we have going on with this one is a guy looking back on his life. The man he was and the man he’s become, but really the man he’s still trying to become.
Nights in the bars. Sitting at those stools and drifting off into oblivion. Not being there for those that depend on you. Not being there for yourself. Not really be there at all.
But there can be light in the future. It’s not instant. It’s hard work and it takes time and patience. But if you keep doing it everyday, no matter what’s going on, you can get to a good place. And you can keep on going to get to even better places in the future.
Really good song. A classic theme of redemption that will always play well with most of us out there.
