Ann Parker here, bloggin' every other Saturday for the LadyKillers, and on the road nearly as often, so it seems.
One week, Cleveland for the Bouchercon convention. Two weeks later, Albuquerque for Women Writing the West conference. But hey, guess what?? No cooking and/or house chores involved!! Sounds like a vacation to me!
I'll try to post some tales from the road in Albuquerque on Facebook, as they happen. But for now, please enjoy this musical interlude, apropos of this week's topic.
"On the Road Again" with Willie Nelson at the Grand Ole Opry!
"Truckin'" with the Grateful Dead. The quality of the video isn't great, but it's worth watching for the vintage '70s hairstyles and clothes. And OMG, Jerry Garcia looks soooo young!
Now, a little Leonard Cohen, because I love this rendition of "Suzanne." ;-)
Wait... no women?? That's not right! So, here's Dolly Parton with "But You Know I Love You."
... And the Dixie Chicks with "The Long Way Around."
If you want ideas of others rock 'n roll and/or country songs that are "tales from the road," check out this old Yahoo! answers post in which someone asked for songs written about being on the road.
And while you're rockin' out (or not), be sure to tell us what your favorite song from the road is. Yes, please share, because music is meant to be heard! :-)
