The Vine: October 28, 2011
Sometime in the early '90s, there was a wave of New Country — Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, that gang. And there was a song that I LOVED. But I can't remember very much about it, and Google only directs me to "Boulder to Birmingham," by Emmylou Harris, which isn't right.
Anyway, the song is about a waitress who is leaving her job (possibly there's a line about hanging up her apron) to be with the man she loves, and moving to Boulder (I think, but maybe Denver — Colorado, either way). She might ride a bus. The man might be rich. Oh, and the song is sung by a woman, but almost certainly not Trisha Yearwood or Suzy Bogguss or Reba McEntire. That's all I've got. Strange I can't find it, huh?
If anyone can identify this song for me, I will love you forever.
Really, I mean it
