I found this song online earlier this year and fell in love with it. It's different from the kind of music I usually listen to, but it's raw and pure and evocative. It takes me to a place and time I never actually experienced and lets me tap into the life of some of my ancestors. It speaks to my heart through my connection to them.
I'm dedicating today's song to the four blogging Powell sisters, Patsy, Fleta, Betty, and Helen, because it reminds me so much of the stories they've told.

The song is "Ellis County" by Buddy and Julie Miller.
