The world lost a great one to this virus last night.
I'll leave it at five. The enormous volume of his work makes it impossible do it justice in a handful of videos. The character and the goodness of his heart are impossible to describe. He showed it in his music and how he lived in life. A great way to know the man was genuine was through just a few minutes talking with him. I was privileged to speak with him a couple times waiting for flights in the Nashville airport. I saw just about every concert he played at the Ryman Auditorium from about 2003 or so until we moved to Cuenca. I was too busy with the move to go to one last show with my wife and her mother in 2017, too bad for me. They might have been concerts but were more jam sessions with a few hundred of his best friends. He was home and he treated everyone like guests.
This pandemic will take many more, the good ones and the idgits. Y'all be careful out there and don't forget we're all in this together. We need each other if more of us are to get through it. The only thing I want from this experience is for people to learn that we have to come together in peace. Help your friends, neighbors, and family any and every way you can while still staying safe.
