why the music

If you have listened to the music we play on Buffalo Country, then you likely already appreciate what I call a “practical form of music”.

I call it “practical music” because any feeling, emotion, or idea can be easily conveyed.  A story can be told, such has Tom T, Hall, “The Homecoming”, or Kenny Rogers, “Coward of the County”. You can tell your boy or girlfriend anything you want to; Randy Travis’, “Forever and Ever Amen” comes to mind on the love song side.  On the love is gone side, Tammy Wynett “D.I.V.O.R.C.E”. There are songs that convey other extremes also. The Dixie Chicks, “Good Bye Earl”, or how about Conway Twitty, “I Know You’ve Never Been This Far Before”? Country music can provide anybody with the voice to say what they feel, from Roy Clark “Thank God and Greyhound She’s Gone”, to the classic Hank Sr., “Hey Good-Lookin'”.

I have said for years that whatever the subject, country music – or this practical form of music – has a song about it.

Feel free to consider this a challenge, email me any ideas and I’ll try to find a song about it. In the mean time, feel free to let me know what I can do to make Buffalo Country more fun for you.

Thank You for your time.
