My music playlist for Memorial Day 2012

Country music is all-American stuff.  Much like jazz, it’s something that can solidly claim that it is American music, through and through.

On a day like today — Memorial Day, when we honor those who have fallen in service to our nation — it’s only fitting that we see and hear the performers who’ve brought us some great tunes that honor our country, including those who’ve worn the uniforms of our armed services.

I’m not looking much for the partisan stuff, we get enough of that in our everyday lives outside of music.  I’m looking for the tunes that can make us proud to be Americans, to show our strengths and maybe to address our weaknesses just a touch — hopefully without pointing fingers, but to show how we need to and can pull together, regardless of political stripes, and work together.

I’m looking for music that salutes our service men and women.

That’s some of what country music can do best.  It’s down-home.  It’s America for Americans.

About A View From The Middle (Class)

Hi, my name's John. I've thought about this blogging stuff for a number of years now. I got into it for real on November 10, 2011, after suddenly losing my job in late October. I've been blogging ever since, and I kept it up over a period of a year and four months of being unemployed or under-employed, to try and paint a picture of what being jobless with a family to support can be like. Finally, on February 28, 2013, I got a better job that puts us back into the "middle class." I won't stop blogging, though. Who knows, maybe I can actually turn this blogging stuff into a way to earn a living someday! If you go to my blog at http://viewfrommiddleclass.wordpress.com/ and click on my About page, it'll tell you a lot about me -- maybe more than you ever wanted to know. I'm just your average, laid-back guy who's GOING TO MAKE IT IN THIS WORLD, despite all the roadblocks thrown in the way. I also launched a "niche" blog on music at http://thecrossovermusicchannel.blogspot.com/ that I'm very excited about because of the popularity of music playlist articles here. Also, check out and "Like" this blog's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/daddysangbassdude2 for instant updates. Look forward to seeing y'all around!
