September 2017 Song of the month : Independence Day by Martina McBride

This one comes to me via the Amateur Talent Contest at the Minnesota State Fair.  Grace Harmoning sang it in the Teen category.  I’d not heard this song before (probably due to the fact it’s a country song and my knowledge of that particular genre is sparse).  I could tell it was a popular song, because several people around me were singing along.

It was only after I watched the video that I found out its subject was domestic violence.

  1. When I saw the title of this post I was a bit surprised knowing Martina McBride’s musical genre. I know that is not your cup of tea. I actually know this song…from my country days! Interesting. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Sometime in my 30s, I crossed over into the “it’s all music” category. I don’t seek out Country music, but neither do I shun it as I once did. Wait until you see October’s music choice.

  2. Hmm, I can’t say that I enjoyed this particular country song, but I always appreciate a musical experience where the crowd gets involved. A local 80s cover band played the theater where I work back in Oct & the crowd was SO into it. I had a blast working that event.
