Episode 306: Garth Was Right

From the sounds of Patsy Cline to the tunes of Cane Brown, country music often tells compelling stories or shares lessons learned. Whether you are a fan of country music, rock n’ roll, or pop, you can most likely relate to the narratives that many of the great country music artists tell in their lyrics. 

Last week, Garth Brooks took home the Country Music Award for Entertainer of the Year, and today we reflect on the valuable lesson he shares with us in his song “Unanswered Prayers.”  In life we dream, we aspire and when faced with certain opportunities or challenges, we often interpret a particular path as the most desirable. Garth reminded us in 1991 and again today that not getting what you want can sometimes be the perfect gift; it is in these instances that the balance of judgment and humility become critical.
