Lyrical personal credo

I am not really sure how I stumbled on Ricky Skagg's and the Kentucky Thunder Album Live at the Charleston Music Hall.  I am not a bluegrass aficionado and at the time I was not following any Christian musicians.  But I found this album and specifically the song "A Simple Life".  It really struck home and has become my unofficial theme song slash personal credo.  My wife knows it and both of my children can sing it word for word because I played it so many times since I discovered it.  I find myself getting bogged down in all the disappointments, stresses and distractions of modern life and this song helps remind me that the truly important things are not complicated and worth focus.  I easily take to heart every line.  Enjoy and start to live the Simple Life. (I think you can just listen to the music and ignore the picture-mentally put yours in).

Skaggs' A Simple Life is an excellent tune.

My grandfather hosted summer bluegrass shows in a small town in Arkansas. Though I don't listen to that type of music often, it is in my blood.

Now that would have been cool to have a connect into some live music during the summer.
