    90's country singer Lari White went forward yesterday. To me, this was her best song and she is one of its co-writers.



    God bless you and her family always!!!

    These past 3 years has seen the loss of far too many great musical artists and icons. It seemed to start in 2015 with the passing of BB King and Leslie Gore. Then later George Michael and Natalie Cole. Prince. 2017 saw the goodbyes of many great musicians.

    It was on this day 20 years ago that my late beautiful precious Steve Sanders of the Oak Ridge Boys went forward, if only I had discovered him sooner, I love him SO much!!! This was the first song led by him to go to radio and it went to #1 almost 30 years ago.



    God bless you and his family always!!!
