The High Cost of Living.

Flipping through the CD changer in the truck this morning and I landed on this song.

I won't make a habit of embedding music videos into my blog, but I thought I'd make an exception for this one because:
  1. I loves me some Jamey Johnson. If this guy's voice does not reach right down into the depths of your soul, please have someone check your pulse.
  2. It appears there is no "official" music video for this song, but this one created by Stone Free Productions is done very well. I have no affiliation with Stone Free Productions. I just like the video.
  3. Steve and I both loved this song before, but for reasons that I may or may not ever share here, the words hit especially close to home these days. And no, nobody in this family is getting high. Or spending nights in motels with strange people. OK, Steve is spending nights in motels with strange people, but they're his coworkers. And he's pretty strange, too, if you really think about it. I'm joking now. Love you, baby.
Enjoy the video.


  1. I'd like to know how you relate to the song if you ever feel like sharing...its a deep song and his voice is amazing...I watched an interview with him one time on tv...quite a past he's had..

  2. Yeah, Bobbi, he's an amazing artist. I love the whole album that song is on. It's very ... dramatic, I guess I'd say.
