Music Monday Extra Tribute to My Dad

Today would have been my Dad’s 90th birthday. Unfortunately, he left this world too soon, at the age of 72, because of 50 years of cigarette smoking. I miss him a lot. He was a wonderful Dad.

I decided to post a tribute to him by posting videos of some of his favorite music. I remember hearing these songs from a set of old vinyl albums with silver labels on which my Dad had drawn pictures so my sister and I could tell what songs were on each album before we knew how to read. There were lots of others, but these were always three of my favorites.

Hank Williams Sr. singing “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry.”

Tennessee Ernie Ford singing “16 Tons.”

Finally, Johnny Cash singing “The Great Speckled Bird.”

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. Linda . . .thank you so much for honoring your dad this way. I loved seeing a glimpse of him through how you described him drawing pictures for you girls on the albums and hearing the music that he liked to listen too. So glad you have these memories of him and that you shared them.
    Now . . .I’ve developed a problem. I can’t hear any of the videos. Not just yours, but any videos/music. 🙁 Can you think of anything for me to check to fix this? It’s not muted and my speakers are turned up. When I figure it out, I’ll have to come back and listen! 🙂

    • Deb, I’m sorry you weren’t able to listen. I’m not sure what the problem could be if it’s not muted speakers. I do know that on my computer there is both the icon to mute or turn up the speakers, and the button on the keyboard. They sometimes seem to act independently of one another. I will pray God helps you figure out the problem so you can once again enjoy all the wonderful videos posted on our favorite blogs. Peace, Linda

      • Linda, you are a genius. 🙂 The speakers were turned down on the computer. My hubby was working on something the other day and must have done that. All better now! God sent me YOU! Okay . . .now to give a listen . . .yippee!
