There are certain instances in life where the music you are listening to fits what is going on in your life at that moment. For most of us, it's with romance - good and bad. The song you dance to with your wife or girlfriend. The song that was playing when the girl you had a crush on dumped you for another guy. We've all been there. This past Tuesday, my wife and I drove a few hours northeast to be present at the birth of our first grandchild. I stuck Western Stars in on low volume while my wife dozed in the front seat. The blue sky with its cotton like white clouds lay ahead as we drove to a new event, a new birth, a new beginning as our only child lay waiting to give birth to her first child. The combination of Bruce's vocals, the lyrics and the orchestration was a stirring backdrop to what lay ahead. So at 6:53 pm, July 16th, as our family welcomed another beautiful little girl into this often confused and frightening world, I know that another world exists - the world that Bruce speaks of in many of these songs. This is why music remains such a powerful part of our lives.
