Diamond Rings and Old Barstools-Tim McGraw (Big Machine)

You know what we’re missing in the mix? Sad songs. Not near enough of ’em, and sad songs have traditionally been a big part of Country music. White people get the blues, too, and today seems like about 90% of us got more crappy days to deal with than we used to. Like, where’s our share of this great, improving economy the biz pages are all a’jitter about, eh? And when you got money problems, your relationship gets rocky. And you start to wonder are we gonna make it and were we ever even right for each other anyway. This fits the national mood.
