Heard this 1990 song coming home from work today (on Bob 103.5 in Austin), for the first time since, oh, 1994 or so, when I was attending grad school in San Francisco and hating everything about the PC people at the university. I tried "getting into" rap at the time. Hated it. Went the opposite way with country --- ended up loving it. San Francisco is when I discovered George Jones for the first time, and a whole lot of other country artists: Hank Williams, Buck Owens, early Strait. This famous Garth Brooks song, I liked a lot at the time. It didn't make me a Garth Brooks fan, but it helped to make me a Country fan.
Anyway: This is the first time I've ever heard this song on the radio. Though it was 100 degrees outside, I turned the AC off and rolled down the windows and cranked the stereo up. I wanted everyone around me to hear how great this was!
