Country music knows that Father's Day is changing

I'm listening to the new record by Kenny Chesney and quite enjoying it. I'll be honest. These arena country stars are much of a muchness to me but every now and then one of their songs strikes a chord. This happens because country is the only branch of pop music that really knows how its audience's lives change.

Track eight on Welcome To The Fishbowl is probably going to be a Father's Day favourite for the future.

It's callled "While He Still Knows Who I Am". You can probably imagine how it goes.


  1. Tim McGraw's "Live Like You Were Dying" is another good Father's Day tune

  2. Not country, but the same theme - Bonnie Raitt's "Nick of Time". Guaranteed to moisten the eye of anyone with elderly parents...
