Thank you Bob. We are at our favorite B&B in the mountains sitting on the porch looking at beautiful scenery and it is such a nice time to read what you wrote.

This was a lovely well written and produced song.

Floyd showing his soft side here, Janice doing her magic on the backing and lead singing.

This was excellent all round and inspires me to get in the wee studio and get some stuff done.

great vocals from both of you and again a brilliant ballad.

Not forgetting Bud ..well done .

Thanks

Wow - stunning, simply stunning. You two paired beautifully on this. It sounds solemn, delicate, sincere, and lush. The mix is top notch and just adds it to an even higher level.

You should be proud of this one. You really accomplished something beautiful. Thanks for sharing smile

floyd and Janice,

This is stunning music.

Everything about this -- vocals, arrangement, instruments, melody, harmony, production -- is top class and first rate and then some!

I absolutely love the journey that I've just travelled. What stood out to me most was the clarity of sound that came through my speakers and my headphones. You've sure showed us all how to make 128 kbps mp3s on Soundcloud work a treat.

This is really, really beautiful music and very skilled lyric writing.

All the best,
Noel

I'm late and everything that I wanted to say has already been said.

So all I can add is that this is better than anything that is being played on country music stations up here!

Great vocals, lyrics, backing tracks,and mix again. I don't know how you do it but please keep on doing it!

This is top shelf all the way!

A real showcase for the talent on the forum.
Excellent.

Not sure what to say ... everything I'm thinking has already been said. Music like this is the foundation of country music. And what a solid foundation this is. I grew up listening to and playing this kind of music. But so little of it was this magical. Known superlatives fall short of adequately describing this.

Floyd, your voice has tinges of Con Hunley who, sadly, we lost a few months back. And Janice is the epitome of classy singing. If this isn't the best example of what country music should be, I don't know what is. Might be the best song on the forum since I've been a member - seriously.

Alan
