You are welcome, Randy!

Good points, Randy and Mike.
No, it's never too late to learn! That's what is so great about these forums, right? :)
I appreciate, like you both do (and other posters here), learning a songwriter's point of view: the story they wanted to tell, the emotions they were sharing, their sources of inspiration, and more.
And then we, the listeners, "hear" the song based on our own life experiences.

John Hartford wrote "Gentle" (in about 30 minutes) after seeing the movie, Dr. Zhivago. According to John: "I went to see the movie Doctor Zhivago the night I wrote it. Everyone's made a whole lot out of that. I know it gave me a feeling that caused me to start writing, but as far as saying it came from that, I don't know. It just came from experience. While I was writing it, if I had any idea that was going to be a hit, it probably would have come out differently and it wouldn't have been a hit. That just came real fast, a blaze, a blur." [From: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gentle_on_My_Mind_(song" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;)]

Isn't it interesting that John Hartford explains that "Gentle" "just came from experience"?

Cowpoke, I believe right now I like the slower, simpler version of "Remembering" better...but this preference could be because this is the version that I have listened to the most.
Ask me again next year! :)

Nice, recent review of Ashley Campbell's single "Remembering".

Which version do you guys prefer? The album version or the sped-up single version?

Well said Randy,
I have noticed that myself about some songs. It is almost as if they only reveal themselves when we have achieved enough life experience to fully understand them.It is when we can relate to the lyrics that the song then becomes a reflection of our own experiences and it is then we begin to fully appreciate them for what they say. But isn't that a wonderful thing that life gives us, the chance to mature and see the bigger picture and relate to more of the musical stories that we hear.

Dee, You are right. I loved reading Ashley's take on the song and couldn't agree more. Having that "peace of mind" memory in your life makes things grand.
Glen in the middle of life , having a family life that he loved to go along with the music and work he loved , made for contentment and happiness.

And I went back immediately and re-watched the video of "Gentle" by the Band Perry with a whole different take and went from either rebelling against it originally or not "getting it" to a better understanding of the idea of the story and really liking the video.

Bottom line..... Never too late to learn is it? Even if it's from someone like Ashley with a whole better understanding of music than I will ever have.

Thanks Dee for the link!!!!

Can't answer your question, Cowpoke, I'm sorry! Maybe someone else can?


The genius.com website now has commentary apparently verified by Ashley Campbell for the lyrics to "Remembering":

I think you'll appreciate these comments, Randy!

Also, Ashley has apparently verified commentary to other songs from I'll Be Me's Original Soundtrack on this page of the Genius site:

While I was away, did Ashley's first single get airplay on country radio? Just curious.

Its great to see artists really getting a kick out of playing together isn't it. I have seen that so often with Glen and his guests on various shows. It somehow generates so much energy for all involved. Wonderful stuff.

“Orthophonic Joy: The 1927 Bristol Sessions Revisited” produced by Carl Jackson

Good review of "Orthophonic Joy"!
Though the current state of popular country music is worse than ever, thanks to commercialism, there is more opportunity for today’s listener than ever before to experience the joy of good music...
