Suzi Youngberg

Suzi is a songwriter, poet, story-teller, music lover and Daddy's girl. She has been in the Keys since 1997; she moved down with her husband Scott, a musical performer and songwriter, and they write songs and even sing together from time to time. After a long career in corporate sales, traveling all over the southeastern U.S., Suzi decided it was time to not only live and love in the Florida Keys, but it was time to make her living here and give more back to the community. She sells advertising for Florida Keys Media in addition to hosting Classic Country Sunday Night (or as she says, "My Daddy's country.")  She also volunteers for community events and charitable organizations; she's on the board of the Upper Keys BPW, the Event Lead for the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life, and more. Read Suzi's poetry, songs and scribbles, and hear what song she's listening to today at SuzisWorld.com.

On this day in 1933, Roy Clark was born in Meherrin, Virginia. The co-host of "Hee Haw," his vocal and instrumental skills brought him hits from 1963-1976, plus the CMA's Entertainer of the Year award and membership in the Country Music Hall of Fame. Here he is proving that a "good ol' boy" sure can play a mean guitar! He was amazing!

Very sad news. Jeff Cook from the Classic Country band, Alabama, has Parkinson's disease and has to stop touring with the band. Y'all, my mama has Parkinson's and I've seen it rob her of her mobility and it's starting to take her memory and her mind. Prayers for Jeff, the band and everyone affected by this terrible disease.

Hey y'all! This is a really good article about Rodney Crowell, and the 5 albums he says changed his life. Y'all know I love Americana as well as Classic Country, and sometimes struggle to define the Americana genre. I really like Rodney's words about it...
“I have declared my loyalty to Americana. It’s a hard category for people to get their heads around, or at least the terminology is. But all the people who represent it – Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle and more recent stars like John Paul White and Jason Isbell – share a common thread. Whether they are actual poets or their music exemplifies a poetic sensibility, generally speaking, the Americana artist shuns commercial compromise in favor of a singular vision. Which resonates with me.”
