"And just like a thirsty field~I can't complain a bit~‘Cause I'm thankful for every single drop I get~His love's like...~Rain on a tin roof~The sweet song of a summertime storm~And oh, the way that it moves you~It's a melody of passion ragin' on~And then it's gone"

"This is better, 'cause TWO people are dead! -Alison, commenting on a comparison between Whiskey Lullaby and He Stopped Loving Her Today.
"I had a chamber pot, and didn't know what it was used for...and I was like, makin' noodles in it. I was...I was. They were fine." -Alison Krauss
Greetings from the Netherlands! This is as good a place as any to introduce myself I guess.

That'll do for now.
It's amazing how you can speak right to my heart. Without sayin' a word you can light up the dark. Try as I may I could never explain, what I hear when you don't say a thing
Apart from AKUS of course I love Andrew Peterson - he's a Christian singer, music is kinda folksy/acoustic/lyrical. Kinda hard to describe, but he's great!! His songs are like stories but always bring across the Christian meaning. Check his music out at -
Well, for me, my faves are.... 1. Alison Krauss & Union Station 2. Rhonda Vincent 3. Martina McBride 4. Toby Keith 5. Brad Paisley 6. Reba McIntire 7. Bob Segar 8. Jimmy Buffet 9. Trace Adkins 10. Miranda Lambert
Thats it for the top 10, but the list goes on and on.
Love is lightning love is ice, it only strikes the lucky twice, once so you will know the price, and once for crazy faith~Crazy Faith~New Favorite
