My Favourite Hurtin' Song

When I Call Your Name is 20 years old now, but it's still my favourite hurtin' song. It personifies confused pain and raw anguish. And oh, those soaring vocals of Vince Gill -- so young and handsome at the start of his career, with the voice of an angel! (You can almost forgive him for that mullet). Plus the sweet, sweet twang of that gorgeous steel guitar ripping out your heart! And as an extra bonus, the classy video for this song is very understated and beautifully shot. It enhances the song instead of overwhelming it.

I always have liked Vince Gill too, especially in his early years. Thanks for bringing back a good memory!

I LOVE this song. Especially the chorus, which I crank up loud! Even though my love of country music waxes and wanes, this one is a classic!

Nice choice!

2 words...George Jones...song?
He stopped loving her today. Which was written by one of my good friends who needed the money and sold the song and his rights to it for $100..sigh*

That is indeed a hurting song, did you notice how the window in the background is kind of like the wheel of fortune? What does she mean, "Debra you're back" did you go somewhere?

Hi Moira -- I was in the hospital having surgery, but I'm home now.
