* why am I so obsessed with this look 🤪🔥

I’m not really sure if this qualifies as an #rip_countrymusic post or not. On one hand, this is a beautiful memorial for hitmaking songwriter Jerry Chesnut. On the other hand, Jerry is, as I write this, very much alive and well.
Chesnutt’s memorial is in the Garden of the Grand Tour by George Jones, and it’s no wonder. Chesnut wrote “A Good Year for the Roses,” an incredible song of a broken marriage and one of Jones’ best performances. Elvis Costello did a great version of it as well. Chesnut also wrote songs for Elvis Presley (“T-R-O-U-B-L-E,” also a hit for Travis Tritt), Johnny Cash (“Oney”) and Jerry Lee Lewis (“Another Place, Another Time”), to name just a few.
About four years ago, Chesnut was interviewed in the Tennessean about “Good Year for the Roses.” He had lined the walkway to his house with hybrid tea roses. He cared for them and tended to them, but buds started falling off. He called the local garden center for help, and the person there explained that it was a very rainy spring, and roses don’t like too much water. “To be honest with you, it’s just not been a good year for roses,” he said. An idea was born, and the resulting song was a smash hit for Jones in 1970.
Chesnut was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1996 and the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame in 2004. He celebrated his 87th birthday on May 7 and hopefully will not be needing this gravesite anytime soon.

Day 26 : A record that reminds me when I met the band
Midwest Farmer’s Daughter - Margo Price : Via mon taf j’ai la chance de rencontrer régulièrement des artistes incroyables, certain•es dont je suis fan depuis des années. Quand j’ai rencontré Margo Price, je venais juste de la découvrir. Elle a été si drôle, charmante, honnête et authentique dans sa démarche. Je me suis dit : c’est d’elle dont la country a besoin aujourd’hui. Trois ans plus tard, tout le monde semble toujours s’en foutre en France mais aux US elle mène une carrière impeccable. Je l’aime fort.

Seele had an opportunity to interview Country Artists, Jon Stone and @kristyosmunson , who have recently formed the new country duo @americanyoung . The duo just got off tour in the UK but the first thing that struck me about them is that they are down to earth. They talk songwriting, faith, why Country Music is relateable, and what gets their creative juices flowing.
