Singer-songwriter Larry Cordle has written songs for some of the biggest names in country music (such as Garth Brooks, George Strait, and Trisha Yearwood) while also fronting his own group, Lonesome Standard Time. When asked what his favorite composition was, Cordle hesitated before answering, “Fields of Home,” recorded by Ricky Skaggs on his 1989 Kentucky Thunder album, and more recently by Cordle himself with Kenny Chesney on All-Star Duets. Cordle gave a disclaimer with his answer, however, stating that he might change his mind and give a different answer if asked the same question tomorrow. After thanking the crowd and saying how proud he was to be from Kentucky, Cordle performed two of his most enduring songs, “Murder on Music Row” and “Highway 40 Blues.”  See more photos and info at Writer’s Journey
