Can’t celebrate Independence Day without some good old fashioned country music.  Luckily, this week, American Country Countdown features a new entry that ties in real nice with my theme of a simple, down-to-earth, all-American celebration of individual freedom.  Dierks Bentley’s Up on the Ridge has nothing to do with power, glory or fightin’. It’s an unassuming ode to the simple joys of young free spirits enjoying what comes natural, all set to amazing pickin’ and fiddlin’ of a haunting Bluegrass melody. And it’s even got a ragged Old Glory in it. I just know yawl gonna love it!
