A few years ago (okay, quite a few years ago) I was in Nashville, TN drinking my morning POM and a friend of mine was drinking a Red Bull. I said to my friend, “Friend, I’m gonna live longer.” And Friend said to me, “Craig, I’m gonna live faster.” I guess it’s all in what your goal-set is. Anyway, I listened to Hank Williams III’s Greatest Hits
and it closely reminded me of the above conversation. To Hank’s credit, I guess he can play just as fast as he’s living.
Suggested Use: The cautionary part of me wants to say, listen to this album and learn from it what you need to avoid if you want a good chance of making it to retirement. Another part of me wants to say, listen to this album and learn from it how to make your own luck. I think I will end up simply saying, though, that track 2, "Country Heroes," is quite charming and worth a listen ... or two, and the breadth of experience it encompasses is sure to be illuminating, no matter what your goal-set happens to be.
