If you avoid country music because you think it is too simplistic, you haven't listened to Clint Black. His lyrics weave stories that make even rugged old cowboys stop and think. That takes a special poet. When Clint Black sets his poetry to music, I hear genius despite the cowboy twang. The May winner contains lyrics by Clint Black and Skip Ewing,but their story is ours.
The May Farmer Fred Award is presented to:
"Love is Something that We Do"
"It gives me heart remembering how
We started with a simple vow,
There's so much to look back on now
Still, it feels brand new.
We're on a road
That has no end
And each day we begin again
Not just something that we're in
It's something that we do."
