Country music has had influence on my life; however I wouldn’t put it on my top 5 list of go-to music genres. However my sister-in-law sent me a link (and Music Monday request) for Garth Brooks’ new song Mom, and I have to admit that it’s pretty nice.
This is an emotional song, which is a conversation between God and an unborn child. Brooks himself even choked up during his performance on Good Morning America. It’s a beautiful song, reassuring an unborn child of their worries and fears of being born, and I think it is so lovely and perfect for a dreary and rainy Monday.
Country or not, music is a universal language that tells a story, and this is a beautiful one.
