Rainy Night In Mudpieville #MewsicMovesMe

The theme of this week's Mewsic Moves Me blog hop is, "They say April showers bring May flowers, so make it rain people! Be creative about where your source of moisture comes from."

The first song on our playlist has to be Conway's duet with Sam Moore on Brook Benton's Rainy Night in Georgia. It's a song about rain, but it also causes moisture of a different sort in the form of tears. It was recorded, and its accompanying video shot, on May 3, 1993, while ironically it was pouring rain outside. No one could have guessed that it would end up being Conway's last time in the studio. He passed away on June 5th.

Get those umbrellas up!


Hope you enjoyed our choices this week and managed to stay dry!

Let us know if you have a favorite!

M&M,

Every time we get April showers I recite the saying "April showers bring May flowers". :) Ronnie Milsap's "Smoky Mountain Rain" is especially nice because he mentions Knoxville in the song. I always enjoy listening to Tim McGraw. The band Black Hawk is an introduction. Thanks! Thanks for hitting the 4M dance floor, furriends. Y'all have a boogietastic week!

When it rains, it pours. Nothing matches sadness like rain inside your head or out...

We LOVE your picture! And We have not had rain all month-though it has tried to snow. I wonder if there are country songs about snow?

Great playlist! We love Garth Brooks and BlackHawk. :)

My favorites were BlackHawk and the duo with Sam Moore. Conway really did a wonderful job, especially at the beginning of the song. So hard to believe he only had a month left to live when he recorded. this. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com
