Re: “Otis Gibbs preserves music stories for the digital age

CORRECTION: Otis Gibbs reports that the site where Marty Robbins wrote "El Paso" is still standing. Also, Bill Monroe's name has been fixed. Apologies for the errors.

Re: “How a terrible worship song drove me from Christianity

I am writing just to encourage you..Your mind is good...I am glad you were honest..and truly believe maybe I kindof understand. I myself came from being raised in a very traditional but evangelical California Baptist church..then in my twenties and thirties led youth groups with their own worship groups.. I met many adults and teens in non denominational churches..that felt like you as well. The experiential evangelical more modern worship was and is odd to many. Worship has changed so much over the years and I truly gor to discuss this and read older songs from calving sys and Methodists or Navarre or even Baptists..foundational HYMS of faith..
NOW THESE ARE SERIOUS INTELLIGENT VERSE! not merely simpler repititions.
I grew up with the Hyms..that built the foundation for a "truer understanding" of many of the parts..phrases..and terminologies
Much more Loosely connected today in music.
Older Christians often comment they miss the "verse..the meat of old hyms" ..saying they "taught you things about faith..and your relationship to sin..freedom..relationship to others and the Earth.. and the most importantly to the.Lord " They fed your soul".
I learned about a Greek terminology in scripture called the "balm of Gilead"..that is the healing of the Holy Spirit..that often comes when those who have the Holy Spirit..are actively pouring out their heart..in orayer..worship (which is a form of prayer..to think..visualize..talk to The Lird..while you sing the worship phrases" ..They loose this communion of soul to our Creator..much as worshipping in nature does...ie: thoreau..or Walt Whitman..or CS,Lewis.even though not all listed are beluevers..but their prose calls to mind True worship...communion!!
Remember we are: mind..body..spirit.
So worship can be prose..verse..especially God's beautiful word..as in Isaiah or Psalms..or Job..intellectual..
Worship can be emotional..feelings ..crying..or elation..on a rock in the forrest..listening tomusic or even in silence.
Worship can be acts..loving others..giving..helping..caring..being you..even of the gifts you've been given..of course your talents..it's worship!
Worship has been absorbed..innately by young x y generations to be "just singing like ..." and fill in the blank..like you experienced or..a pentacostal over emotional hyped..worship..
God says..it is all and more my beloved..
But without a personal RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS..HAVING HIM AS LORD OF YOUR LIFE..ACCEPTING FORGIVENESS AS THAT'S IT..FOR SALVATION..AND INVITING HIM INTO YOUR LIFE TO BE WITH YOU..HAVE CONTROL..THE HOLY SPIRIT THEN COMES..
IT'S NOT RELIGION..
the definition of religion is literally: man's way..themes..traditions..of worshipping or relationshing or relating to God..which are vast..
Not a real relationship with HIM as Christian was explaining and expanding to His disciples even..or followers..

I wish for you this..BIG ...understanding..it's really..a large way..worship...
Hope you soul is lifted with meaningful verses of old traditional hyms..the words!! And you know.. God lives our critical mind
.He created it! It's perfectly ok. To ask..question..doubt..
Look at John Macarther..he tested Christianity as an atheist as did Cs Lewis!! Read these brilliant minds..who thought as you..
Go Seek..Question..Ask God to reveal himself to Your Mind!!
I know..I am a scientist.

Re: “Local man Langhorne Slim releases new recording

What a lame headline! Is this a small-town police blotter from 1950? Come on...a third grader could come up with a better heading than that! And beyond that this review is so mean-spirited and disrespectful...it's almost as if the writer has some sort of personal beef with the artist. Dude, did he steal your girlfriend...come on! Based on the crowd size & enthusiastic response at The Mercy Lounge on Saturday night I think a whole lot of Nashvillians appreciate and approve of Langhorne's latest artistic endeavor and they were there to show their support in a big way...and Maloney's petty, negative criticism is just one jaded person's opinion.

He means the Red River of the North... or simply "The Red River" in the Upper Midwest, not the Red River of the South.

Re: “Local man Langhorne Slim releases new recording

It's easier to be a critic than be a creator. Critics risk nothing. Except maybe a paycheck. They get paid to blow smoke / pour fire on the things they like / can't stand about themselves.

Show some respect Sean Maloney, Show some courtesy to the artists that give you a platform to begin with.
Remember that artists like Langhorne aren't static (like indie rag critics) they are moving, going somewhere. Trying to build something meaningful. From nothing.

Not every record is gonna sell. Not every record is gonna blow the local indie rag's monkey mind. Get over yourself Sean Maloney. Relax, Nashville Scene. Have a Pop Tart and start showing a little more grace to the folks who keep you employed.

Re: “The Phlorescent Teach

History indeed. It seems as if the Happy Together song will live for 1,000 years as an advertising jingle. It's been used to pitch most everything. :-)

Re: “How Emily West found her voice in a most unlikely place ... reality television

I've been trying to follow her career for a long time. She just kind of disappeared when one label dropped her. She has an incredible voice and will follow her for a very, very long time.

Re: “How a terrible worship song drove me from Christianity

I too feel awkward at singing & dancing in church. Its not me. I don't let it bother me though. You see we serve & worship God in our own way. I simply worship him with my life & actions.
I think that you really have had a poor sampling of Christianity in the Catholic church. No offense to the people but in the Catholic church there are many things they do that are not in the Bible & things that Jesus spoke against the Pharisees over. No Christian should feel ridden with guilt.
Do not let others & a bad song keep you from him. Seek him yourself as yourself in your own way. Don't worry about everyone else.

again, thanks for the response.
as you know, the term "independent" or "indy" gets tossed around alot and is over-used to garner some sort of credibility. your evidence suggests that waylon and willie were busy on independent labels and may have had some DIY ethic, as Shooter says, but I reckon by this thinking we can now call the Beatles a DIY act that toiled away at that indy, VeeJay.

Re: “How a terrible worship song drove me from Christianity

Hey, I guess this is a little late, but stumbled across this is anyone is still reading. Just had a thought or two. I am a Christian. I'm not sure if I understand the animosity towards similies/anaologies/metophores -- what's wrong with them or bad about them? People (and God Himself in the Bible...not to mention many other religions) have been using analogies for all I know, as far as history. Today we use analogy all the time. It is just used to help understand something else. It is an artistic thing -- we are artists, God is an artist too in this way. Not sure why it is considered bad in this thread. Just one more thought, just to clarify the Bible's intent... the term heart in the Bible does not refer to the organ, but it is an analogy for the seat of all our thoughts, emotions, desires, will -- the center of our being and who we are. All that we are come out of our heart... and God has a heart too. Anyway, the song I guess is not that important to you now, I am sure you have your own reasons for not believing that have developed since then. My heart goes out to you. As in, my physical organ ;) just kidding.

You know what, I'll say one more thought. When a son, when young, writes and sings his own song to his father, would the father ever weep and cringe in response? Of course the son can write better, but that doesn't influence His response. Words do matter, but because of understanding God better and Him being known as accurately as us limited humans can, not because they can change God's feelings and love towards us. He does not pursue perfection for His love but desire for grace and mercy. I probably won't come back to this thread, but I am always game to talk more if you get in contact over facebook searching my name. Whatever you'd like. Best to you.

Re: “Reunited space-rock heroes Hum kick off their first tour in 17 years in Nashville

Hum released 4 albums, not 3. Their debut was 1991's Fillet Show (terrible name). It featured a significantly different line up than the other 3 albums, and is generally considered inferior to E2k, YPaA & DiH.

Thanks for asking!

Waylon Jennings -- Trend Records, BAT Records and A&M Records (Which was still an indie at the time he did so.)

Willie Nelson -- Willie Nelson Records (a custom-pressing of only 500 copies made for him by Starday's custom service), D Records, Rx Records and Liberty Records (Which was still an indie at the time he recorded with them.)
