Nashville or Bust

The trip that started a longer journey

Happy Anniversary

Earlier this summer, we bumped into a recording by some of our new favorites, Buddy & Julie Miller. They’re quietly known as the First Couple of the Americana genre. We love them because they are real, neat, giving and wonderfully talented people. Someday we’re going to have them over for coffee and pie.

But I digress… when we heard this song, we loved it for many reasons. One of which is the simple chord progression of G/D/Am/C and a random Em which allowed for us to learn it (butcher it?) instantly. Then there are the words, and the way Buddy’s voice gently cradles Julie’s and supports her through the recording.

Like many things, we found this song at the right time … as we were evaluating our first 20 years as Mr. & Mrs.  I spun it on the way in to work today and found it to be simply perfect. So whether or not you were with us on that night in California, know that some things never change. They just get better. Including the kisses.

HOLDING UP THE SKY

Intro: (G)(D)(Am)(D)

When the night has stayed too long
And tears won’t keep
When the sun beats down too strong
Our love runs deep

And our love will hold up the sky
When the rain comes down too hard
It’s a cord that will not un)tie
It’s a promise the angels guard
It will always be your name
Written on my heart
You are inside my heart

Baby our love was meant to be
It’s from God’s hands
Even when dreams turn to memories
Our love will dance

And our love will hold up the sky
When the rain comes down too hard
It’s a cord that will not untie
It’s a promise the angels guard
It will always be your name
Written on my heart
You are inside my heart
