In the spirit of St. Valentine, JT Hodges graciously gave away a FREE acoustic performance cover of Garth Brooks’ “The Dance”.
The song is such a classic in Garth’s catalog that I give JT a professional nod for daring to pick his version of this breathtaking ballad and indeed not “miss the dance.”
Acoustic versions always touch my heart. A guitar, a thought, a vocal, an artist – it’s magic – a thought unobstructed. The rawness of black and white photography has always moved me as it invites the heart, soul and imagination to do what it will, to see things on its own.
In Hodges’ cover of “The Dance” he combines all of that – an acoustic guitar, whiskey-soaked vocals, black and white photography – and delivers a riveting rendition of this timeless tale.
And while JT did offer up “The Dance” cover video as a special Valentine treat to his fans, be sure to tune in and share it daily with someone you love, as both the song, the artist and the message endure.
Yes, our lives are better left to chance. I could have missed the pain but I’d have had to miss The Dance.
