song for for a heartache

 Last Saturday night we went to watch Barney Bentall perform with Shari Ulrich and Tom Taylor.
Barney was well know back in the '80s & '90's for his work with The Legendary Hearts.
Trying to balance his life as a family man and a musician, he gave up touring and bought a cattle ranch in Alberta. I think he's the sweetest sounding cowboy I know.
 He's back in the music biz now, but as he puts it, "Only if a song won't leave me alone".
So there he is out there with his dogs, his horses, his cows, the cold, the dry and that big open sky...
...and by the sounds of it, a heartache or two.
 This song seems to tell an age old story of the fear of big love and how even no matter how much it scares you, grab on and go for the ride.
