Bluegrass Loves 'Em Some Obama

The endorsement of Barack Obama by legendary picker, singer/songerwriter Ralph Stanley kind of came out of the blue for me. You would think that he would be a McCain man. But, it's nice to see that an older generation that you would think wouldn't vote for him because he's Black is getting behind him. I think that dude from Big & Rich and Ricky Skaggs could learn a thing or two from Mr. Stanley.

BTW, I actually got to see Stanley when he played the "Down From The Mountain" tour several years ago. It was cool to see a real pioneer in a music genre get up on stage and sing like a young man.
