A Relaxing Country Song About the Beauty of Unwinding on a Sunday


That's What I Love About Sunday, by Craig Morgan

Relax and listen to Craig's video featured below while you read! 

Does your own life allow you to have a do-nothing-day on Sundays? I hope so.

Maybe your rest time lands on another day of the week? Again, I hope you at least get that weekly break you rightly deserve. After all, what's it all for if we can't stop and enjoy the company of those we love.

There's something powerfully productive about doing nothing at all, and let's face it, many of us need to master the art of  'stopping'  ... especially with 24-7 access to the internet. So what in the world are you doing here on this page! Go rest!! Oh yah, I forgot; you're looking for a country song about Sundays - one you can play while you take that much needed sunny day stroll.

(Lyrics) 'That's what I love about Sunday, cat-napping on the porch swing, you curled up next to me, the smell of jasmine wakes us up, take a walk down a back road'

There's clear evidence that life is getting harder for our kids ... not easier, as it's supposed to. Neil Howe, Contributor for Forbes Magazine, provides an interesting and detailed explanation in his article "Generations in Pursuit of the American Dream", of how every generation, up until now has had it better than their parents. You may be wondering what this has to do with relaxing on a Sunday to a soothing country tune ... well, as per the principle of Ockham's razor, 'the simplest explanation is usually the better one', and the simplest explanation is this:

With the constant worries of life, like work, family and of course, money, our ability to decompress becomes an integral part of 'getting through it all'. In order to successfully tackle our life challenges, we need to find balance  ... more so today than any other time.

That's where the art of telling stories, mostly found in country music can play a role: The lyrics help our mind paint a picture of what an emotion really means. The story helps us feel the song; it's those feelings that govern thought, and it's our thoughts that govern our beliefs, and in turn, our beliefs then govern our actions. So go ahead and unwind! Not only will your mind thank you, but so will your body.

Story telling in country music, whether it's new country or that old time sound, has managed to remain part of the genre for generations. Craig Morgan's song offers the newer sound of today's country, but the story being told in his relaxing tune could have easily been one from any previous decade.

You deserve a break. Here's a toast to you for taking it ... I hope you enjoy Craig Morgan's wonderful Sunday song. You can find more about Craig Morgan on his website. Country music fans matter, so don't forget to Like 'Country Music Fan Reviews' on Facebook!
