While I was taking care of my medical issues in various hospitals all over America, I didn’t get the opportunity to write about us loosing our beloved Legends like Mr. Kenny Rogers and others. I’m working on a big huge article right now about many people that 2020 has already taken away from us.
This is a perfect opportunity to catch up on documentaries and shows that showcase those that influenced me to doing exactly what I do now, which is write about Country Music among their genres. Many nights I moil very late into the night, researching and studying these famous people, and how they embellished their music.
With thousands of LIVE STREAMS going on right now, and so many others catching up on podcasts, these two shows will be awesome treats to get to watch on television tonight. So as I take this time to catch up on things, I’ll be watching these.
