30 day song challenge: day 7 – a song that reminds me of a certain event:
“achy breaky heart” – billy ray cyrus
the year was 1992. my sister was a huge fan of billy ray cyrus, recording songs of his off of the radio via her cassette recorder.
as a surprise to her one night, my dad bought her the album, some gave all at kmart just down the road from our house. he secretly pulled the tape out of the wrapper and package and slipped it into the stereo in the living room and proceeded to press “play” – i’ll never forget the squeal of delight my sister gave when the song came on and the squeal of delight when she found out that dad had bought her the cassette.
