A Voodoo Queen and Old Country Music

A Voodoo Queen and Old Country Music

This might be the most crazy, old country song I have ever heard. This is not my first time hearing this interesting tune, but I’m not lying or over-exaggerating when I say that it has come on at least four times this week. Ever since I happened to play it when I was looking for a Bobby Bare song, it has come up several times. But I guess that’s how it always happens. Down in LouΒ΄siana where the black trees grow, lives a voodoo lady named Marie Laveau. She got…

Gruene Hall on a Sunday Evening

Gruene Hall on a Sunday Evening

Let’s get one thing straight, I will dance to anything. Country, swing, tejano, hip pop. Two-step, three-step, half-step, waltz.

If you see me not dancing, you best come over and ask me for a dance if you want to get some points from me! Just this weekend, Grandma and…

Howdy to Another Monday

Happy happy Monday! Looking like another beautiful Monday here in San Antonio. After such a gorgeous weekend, it was awfully hard to want to go to work this morning. Of course I’ll have to post later about my shenanigans this weekend, but that will have to wait for now. Because, right now is my Musical Monday feature! I have been working on trying to come up with a calendar for this blog so that I can stay focused and not go so long between posts. Last week my post was…

Another Day Older and Deeper in Debt

Another Day Older and Deeper in Debt

Another day older…. true. Deeper in debt…. fortunately false! Thankfully the headline is not hinting at my current misfortune but indeed one of my favorite songs. Tennessee Ernie Ford’s 1955 hit “Sixteen Tons” has been one of my favorite oldies since I first heard it. It has a catchy tune and great lyrics. When you get down to the words line by line, they are oddly applicable to many modern situations at hand today, which is why I believe this song to still be so popular to cover amongst artists….
