I don't usually post OT items - but this is one of the best country song videos I've heard and seen in a long time. Called "Forever Country."

And for me it just brings back a lot of good memories. Some of which are of family, friends, old cars, grandma's farm, God, church, Model Ts and you guys.

One of the lines is "I hope life treats you kind and you have all you dreamed of." I wish that for each of you.

See: http://www.country105.com/2016/09/20/the-video-of-the-year-forever-country/ click on the arrow after the commercial.

And if you want to know who sings what that is listed at: http://www.country105.com/syn/111/48182/lyrics-to-forever-country-see-who-sings- what-part-of-the-song


Respectfully submitted,

OMG Hap, that video was just the best ever. Been country since I could crawl up the the floor model radio. Thought I seen a glimpse of Randy Travis. We had breakfast together at the Fiddler's Inn in Nashville, his stage name then was Randy Ray, just a down home good ol' boy. Ask him for his autograph and he laughed'n said "why the hell do you want my autograph, I said with a voice like that your going to the top (well guess what). Thanks for sharing Hap, it sure did bring back alotta good memories.

Banjo I just got back from a builder after 8 years. This is the first one I had when I started the band in 1977, and ran to 1988. This is a 1915 Beacon FFF Professional.

That's not really a banjo, more like a work of art! That is beautiful Herm. There is a guy near me that builds them and turns out really nice stuff but nothing like that.

Just the purdiest tenor banjo I ever laid eyes on

The best soundtrack John Williams ever composed was for a movie based on Faulkner's Pulitzer prize winning novel, "The Reivers" about a stolen Winton Flyer and the protagonist's crush on a prostitute. Simply the best use of a banjo with orchestra ever.

The story offers some fascinating depictions of the first automobiles in American society; how they were obtained, how they were cared for, how they were regarded by their new owners. The Priests make their living from transportation and logistics (they run a livery stable), and grandfather and grandson both sense that this new invention will have a powerful effect on their lives.

Wow that was so great!! I really like to see the many different people singing together.

Sure did miss a little from George Jones but I guess that'd been sort of hard.

Thanks for posting, Was Uncle Stan there in the background of the one clip? Hee hee

The banjo is beautiful all right but it's not a tenor. It's a 5-string, or "bluegrass" banjo. A tenor has 4 strings, a shorter neck, and larger drum.

Gorgeous!

Thanks for the video, Hap. Teresa wonders why, as an "east-river boy" I like country so much and she as a "west river girl" has been more Rock-N-Roll.

A Denver song sung by a cast of thousands. Here's some pretty good banjo from a smaller group: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFbWkL818XQ

Noel, did I ever send you a copy of my last CD, since Gene brought it up? I remember telling you I was going to but I don't remember if I ever did. It is "Turn Me Loose and Let Me Sing." The one before that was "Bunkhouse and Honkytonk." The one before that ..... I barely remember that one. It was almost 20 years between the last two. I'm still working on getting all the art work and production done (see "carburetors for sale" in the classifieds) but every picture of me looks just like me instead of what I remember looking like a few years back. I need whoever did the photoshop in that video.

R V, I noticed that too but wasn't about to bring it up.

Hap. That is awesome. The best ever. You can't beat country music. Been doing it for over 65 years but nothing like this. Love it. Thanks for sharing. Glen

Herm -- That banjo is an amazing piece of craftsmanship. But I bet it still sounds like a banjo.....

(Sorry, I couldn't pass up an opportunity for a banjo joke.) :-)
