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 that year. I've been blogging ever since, and I kept it up on a daily basis 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 put us back into the "middle class." But then that job went away, and I took a job as a transit bus driver that put us more in a lower income bracket. Now, I want to blog again on a more regular basis to tell of the kinds of struggles people like us go through as we work toward something better. 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 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 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 for instant updates. Look forward to seeing y'all around!
