Musical Interlude: 'Till The Rivers All Run Dry (1975)

I've often acknowledged in this space that I grew up in a household that preferred country music. I do have my favorites in the genre. Johnny Cash. Charley Pride. Buck Owens. Roy Clark. (Hee Haw, of course) And, then, there is Don Williams.

There's often been a debate over "Amanda", which was a huge hit for both Williams and Waylon Jennings in the 70's. Williams' gentle, carefree version has proven to be much the better. One of my favorite Don Williams songs, though, is 1975's "'Till The Rivers All Run Dry", a soft ballad of reflection & rumination. The following video is from a 1979 concert.
