For today’s country music playlist, I’ll go Down Under.  I know I’ve got some readers in Australia and New Zealand, so as a show of good global relations I’ll offer up some tunes from Keith Urban.

Like so many country musicians, Urban has lived the kind of life worthy of a few stories just from his own experiences.  His interest in the music business started very early, and he pretty much hit the ground running once he got a foot inside the door in Australia with talent show wins, a recording deal, and No. 1 songs there.

He’s worked with big-name American stars like Brooks & Dunn, and his guitar playing skills have gotten him work as a session player with Garth Brooks and The Dixie Chicks.

He’s also had stories coming out of his battles with substance abuse, and he’s got a movie star wife in Nicole Kidman.

Yep, there’s some country stories there all right.

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!
