Nice one. Sounds very real and spontaneous... Looks like I missed this first time round. I was thinking about Gene the other day, talking about him to my wife.

Very positive and uplifting and a feel between Dolly and Emylou. Lovely coming out of the darkness of your Twin Cities. I'm sorry there has been so much hurt there, clash that sadly is like 50 years ago again because it is. Change has to come in the unnecessary loss of George. Thanks for the kind words to my track earlier Colleen. It's good to discovery you and Andrew also in your circle.

You had me with "If I start by making a better me / It will help to make a better we" ... I was listening without reading what it was about. In fact, I didn't make the connection until after I had finished the first listen. But it was "wooooo" ... You've created a song that gets to the heart of a thing without being tied to the thing that made the writer write it... that's magical... I agree with Greg - it's an anthem... wow... many thanks for saying what many of us think, feel, and wanted to say....

MN Homebrew Radio show has a monthly writing contest. This month it was to use the word "wait" or "waiting" in your song. So the hook line of the chorus popped into my head at 5:30 in the morning and the rest of the song came pretty quickly…
