About COAL MINER'S DAUGHTER:
First of all. Behind all my Country Tributes is a story. A story about my life in the past years. I had a lot of blows of fate. And sometimes I thought "that's it". I wanted to give up. I've lost my base -- more and more -- day after day. But in the hardest moments I've heard the good ol' country music. Songs of my most favorites like
WAYLON JENNINGS, PATTY LOVELESS, DOLLY PARTON, JOHNNY CASH, ED BRUCE, WILLIE NELSON, KENNY ROGERS and THE HIGHWAYMEN.
In their songs, I found peace, tranquility, strength, and something very special. They became secret friends to me. My own little and wonderful country family. I do not know anyone personally. But they were always there for me. They took me back to my life, to my base. They also gave me the strength to endure the often so difficult and hard work with abused animals. A work I will never miss. But in these songs, I also found answers for my often hard life.
I am not a rich man and I do not have much to offer. But I wanted to return something back to my secret friends. But what?
I've born the idea to share my love for my "little family" with the world. To show -- that country music is much more than just music. All my tribute videos for my secret friends are coming straight from my heart. To show my respect, my admiration and my thanks.
LORETTA LYNN. You are the last in line -- I mean the last "member of my little country family". I love you Loretta and the way you are. Your music is like a jewel in my heart. I've worked over weeks to find the right way for my storyboard and my choice of music. My way to say THANK YOU LORETTA!
I love many more of country singers. But the 9, here listed singers are and remain my little country family.
SPECIAL DEDICATION: This video is also dedicated to all COAL MINERS and their FAMILIES. First of all to the victims of the mining disaster in Turkey. A Coal miner is making a hell of a job. FOR ALL OF US. May God bless and protect all coal miners and their families.
Thank God that you gave me this family. Bless and protect all members as good as you can.
LORETTA LYNN. Whenever you find time or the way to this video. I'll hope you like it. Thank you for YOU!
Your friend Chuck Houston
