It's easy to loose one's way in life. Each crossroad brings a choice. The paths we CHOOSE are ultimately reflected in who and what we are. The effects of our Choices become self evident, whether our choices are right or wrong. Consequence Assured. We our own worst enemy, the enemy within.

I love this mans voice...I've lived this song to a T and it's much better to live a life to tell your war stories than to get trapped in the wrath of addiction... t h i s whole album is amazing! It was wrote after the failure of his marriage and helped me through my divorce immensely... G o d Bless Jamey Johnson!

Real country. I hope we're starting to get more artists like him instead of the teeny boppers and boy-girl bands that have infiltrated (and IMO ruined)count r y music.
