He gets it, in more ways than one
Chet Flippo is a music journalist. He was a rock writer for Rolling Stone in the 1970s, and today he is the editorial director of CMT.com. He writes a thoughtful weekly column, Nashville Skyline, on myriad things country, and I recommend it to all music fans, whether country music does anything for you or not. Today, he expressed many things I believe dearly and deeply, with a powerful eloquence well beyond what I possess.
