Growing up, my mom frequently tuned into Country Music Television (CMT) for background music, and I vividly recall dancing to the songs in the living room. I’m not a country fan as an adult, but for some strange reason, yesterday, three old songs from the late 80’s snuck into my head (and have been on repeat since).
First was the Roseanne Cash version of “Tennessee Flat-Top Box” from 1987.
That brought about Tonya Tucker’s “Strong Enough to Bend” from 1989.
And finally was the sad, but beautiful, “Where’ve You Been,” by Kathy Mattea, also from 1989.
Do you know any of these songs?
