Blog Challenge - Day 16ish

Day 16… A song that makes you cry..or nearly.

I have fallen off the Bloggerwagon. But I’m hoisting myself back up! In my time off the wagon, I’ve been thinking about Day 16’s topic: A song that makes you cry or nearly. Off the top of my head I can think of a few, and I can think of songs or moments listening to songs that make me teary or upset.

The National Anthem always gives me goosebumps. And there are moments when I’ve heard it and teared. There is nothing like being at a NASCAR race with the jets flying over, the Anthem playing and it just evokes a sense of America.

There are songs that were written about 9/11 or songs that came to represent something after 9/11. These songs make me cry. I can still remember driving home from VT a week or so after 9/11 and hearing the “American” themed songs and bawling my eyes out because of what they now stood for.

Of course sappy love songs or songs about fathers and daughters always get to me.

I think for the purpose of this post, I will go with:

Then… by Brad Paisley. This was one of my friends wedding songs, and over a year later I still get teary when I hear it.
