Popular music has a way of reflecting what’s really going on around us, as songwriters and artists write directly about current events.

Music is a universal language, and a window to the soul. The following artists left their windows wide open. These songs allow us to time travel to a specific place in history.

Special music activates many parts of our brain, including the so-called limbic system of the brain, which is involved in motivation, emotion, learning, and memory.

My oldest daughter Natasha, my first endless love, returned from a Kemtucky business trip home of American bluegrass music 🎼

This is dedicated to her, my son-in-law, Elena, Chloe, Sophia and Parker. Bluegrass is a fascinating genre rooted in American folk music. This form of country music developed in Appalachia with influences from Scottish and Irish traditional music, African-American spirituals, and jazz.
