A little bit 'o Heather History for ya here this morning Lovelies! Try to contain your excitement... ;)
This video has a lot of different meanings for me.
Number 1: The artist is Luke Bryan - whom I went to high school with. We grew up together in a town with a population of less than 3000 people. Everybody knew everybody - and we were all friends.
I remember watching Luke in the high school musicals thinking "this guy's gonna make it."
Well - I was right. He made it.
I was there for his first "real" live performance at my best friend's daddy's bar in our small town of Leesburg, GA. This song is about that small town - and what it was like growing up for us. It will always be one of my personal favorites. Every time I watch it I feel like I'm back home - which is comforting to me.
I miss home and I miss this life we used to live that he describes in this song. It's a lot different here in Arizona. I hope this video shows you perhaps just a glimpse of it.
I've included the lyrics down below the video. The Flint River is where we all learned to swim. It's where we went fishing, it's the river that caused the "Flood of the Century" - and then another one a few years later.
