Unlike a box of chocolates (“Are you trying to make me fat???”) and for less money than a bouquet of flowers (that die in a few days anyway), you can’t go wrong with the gift of bluegrass music on Valentine’s Day!
I know that not everyone is a romantic. Some guys get pretty nervous when Valentine’s Day rolls around and they haven’t got a clue what to do to impress their sweetie (and last year’s offer of a new bass boat might not have been as well received as some had hoped). Well, bluegrass music can save the day. How about a song that combines two of your favorite things…fishing and the love of your life? Set the mood with the bouncy bluegrass tune “I Caught a Keeper (when I caught you!)” What sweetheart could resist a sentiment like that???
Or perhaps you’re a straightforward kinda guy whose tongue gets all tangled up by sweet nuthins’. You want a song that will just come right out and say what you mean. Well then, I suggest “Just Loving You” as the perfect way to express yourself without actually having to use words.
Both of these songs are available on albums of mine and I sure would appreciate it if you contact your local DJ on Valentine’s Day and request one of these tunes to be dedicated to that special someone in your life. Or, if you own the albums (Wild Card and The Blackest Crow), then turn the lights down low, pour a couple of beers into a glass (trust me, they like that!), put the albums on the CD player, and get ready for some snuggle time as you gaze deeply into your loved ones eyes and let the songs do the talking. Hearts will melt, I guarantee!
