Sometimes we miss obvious things.
It has been said to me twice in the last few weeks that a big reason why country music works is because it’s songs often focus on telling a story.
And even though I have heard many great stories told in country songs over the years I never made this connection.
Regina is a recent member of our theme night gang. Many of you will remember her singing Summer in Dublin on Theme Night #27.
And she and her team have put a huge creative and organisational effort into a new single she has out – a country cover of Valerie.
And while the story may not shine through as obviously as other songs in this genre, sometimes that works too.
