Shortly after returning from Nashville, I was sitting in a corner booth of a local restaurant hosting Bluegrass Night. As the band was playing a waltz, I observed an older man walk through the crowd to the dance floor and he began to dance by himself. While others snickered and commented to each other, my heart immediately softened as I started thinking about the old man's "story." Maybe he had too much to drink, maybe it was time for him to head on home, and yet maybe, that was the way of staying connected to the one true love of his life who had departed. I rested on that idea and went home that night to write Starry Southern Nights. Losing someone you love is one of the toughest events to deal with in life. During these unprecedented and difficult times, it's important to keep a soft heart, be slow to judge and take time to get to know other peoples stories.
