Country Music Angels

The Grand Ole Opry
.The Old Ryman Auditorium

Those of us who appreciate good ole down home Traditional Country Music, will remember Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Earnest Tubb, Bill Monroe, Kitty Wells, Porter Wagner, George Jones, Tammy Wynette, Minnie Pearl and so many others that could be named. More often then not, Country Music included some very fine Southern Gospel, which goes to the roots of true Country Music. But to say I like Country Music, in and of itself, does not meanapproval of all music that is calledcountry.

The younger generation, those born into an age of laptops, ipads, iphones and downloaded digital music, may not be able to comprehend an age when those of us on the lower rungs of society could not even afford as much as a small radio. It was the mid 1950s and us boys loved music as much as anyone of you today, so we used our imagination. We got hold of some copper wire, strung it across the room and attached it to a little home made gadget, which we slide across the copper wire until we located a station on radio. After a few adjustments, our first success came on a Saturday night; it was a Country Music Station from Kentucky, which carried the Grand Ole Opry out of Nashville Tennessee.

.

It was broadcast live from the old Ryman Auditorium, let me say, that was real music, and I might add, it was much better then so many of todays pornographic music videos. And it was a heap better the cultic chants, commonly known as Rap Music! We could barley hear the sound back then, but what we heard lifted our hearts, not withstanding we later managed to get us a television with Rabbit ears, not the furry kind either. And that's something else today’s generation may not know about, in any case we gathered around on a Saturday night to watch the Grand Ole Opry. Our television was small and the picture, black and white, but to us it was a spectacular thing.
.
Additionally, about half a lifetime ago I was in the military and stationed in New York City, back when Southern music was a rare commodity in the Big Yankee Apple. My memory of the occasion comes back to me when I realize just how we have been so blessed. A friend and fellow Southerner, who was suffering under similar deprivation as I, provided us with a temporary respite. He had a tape recording containing several Country Tunes, recorded back when Southern Music still sounded Southern. Among the well know singers of the day was Hank Williams, Furlin Husky, Red Folly and a few others; all the tunes were good, sound and descent music.
.

He pushed the start button and we all began to hear the wailing guitars of our homeland! He also had a tape containing some good ole down home Southern Gospel Music, the kind with plenty of twang. My eyes filled with moisture and my face bore a huge smile! A New York Yankee standing near by spoke up! "That music touches you that much?" You better bet it does, I replied! Like a man lost on the dessert and having a heavy thirst, then suddenly seeing an oasis up ahead. I am that man in a far country, spiritually hungry and for the moment, a bit lonely, stationed in far off Yankeedom when suddenly I hear the sounds of my homeland.
.

We Southerners produce more Musicians, Singers, Storytellers, and Ministers of the Gospel then any region on earth! And we do it all with gusto, as well as from the bottom of our hearts. The subject has since come up again in more recent times, and it all began with a question, which I answered with a little humor. I was asked; "you recon the Good Lord has Southern Angels? Maybe just perhaps there’s some part of heaven, where we will hear our Southern Accent, with Wailing Harps, he said?" I chuckled at the thought! Don't really know my friend, I said; but it would after all be right neighborly! I am certainly no kind of theologian, I replied, and whatever the Almighty God has prepared, it is quite all right with me.
.

Still I can't help but believe, that somewhere in the portals of Heavens Glory, the creator of both Heaven and Earth, having given us our Southern heart has also considered these things, while having prepared a place for us. Surely he has some place for the Southern Soul; I like to believe that when those Saintly Choirs gather around, and begin singing before the Golden Thrown of Heaven's Grace. Well, it does make one smile to think, that there could well be heard echoing throughout the void of space, and down across the Milky Way, at least one Angelic Choir having a Southern Accent.

.

Maybe if we listen vary close during some beautiful and clear starry night, when the heaven's are at their brightest, should we pay close attention, we will hear the wailing harps of Heavens Grace. After all, we have good enough reason to believe the Almighty God must have reserved some space for such noble Southerners leaders as President Jefferson Davis, along with Generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. 'Stonewall' Jackson. Yes indeed, I havefaith, that our Lord has also made room for the twang and wailing sounds of our Traditional Country Music also! And to that I say, Amen and Amen!
.

How about doing a little search online, look up Traditional Country Music
as well as that ole time, down home Southern Gospel Music? The kind that
has twang and a wailing sound; you’ll like it! Get away from the rap and
the pop music, which are for the most part an immoral rhythmic chant, and
listen to those who can actually sing.
