Time Flies (And Love Does Too)

Mike Sudhalter  |  October 19, 2008

That's a line from a Granger Smith, but I've found it to be true.

I'm 29 years old, right on the brink of 30, and I can't believe it. I don't really feel 29, and a big part of that is my relatively new single status.

I joked with a friend that after four years of marriage, from 24 to 28, I have to re-experience my mid-20's.

I value the experiences of being married, and I wish her the best of luck because I know she'll have a great life. I'm optimistic about the future, and you better believe that country music has gotten me through the good and bad times.

Last Sunday was kind of bittersweet because it would have marked our fifth anniversary. Luckily, she picked the wedding song - "Forever and For Always" by Shania Twain. Y'all know that I'm no fan of country sounds than lean that heavily towards pop.

It was also bittersweet visiting Louisiana nearly five years after our honeymoon in New Orleans. It was just a coincidence, since I took an impromptu road trip with a friend to Lake Charles, La. - about 200 miles west of the Crescent City.

Maybe, if I ever re-marry, she'll be a traditional country fan and guests can enjoy the sounds of Hank Williams Sr., Marty Robbins and Lefty Frizzell at the reception. Then, hopefully we'll ask the DJ to mix some Texas Country into the set.

Seriously, two of the things I've learned are that it's very important to have things in common. My twin passions are sports and country music. I hope to meet someone who enjoys those things as much as I do.

I've found that there's no better place to live my life than the great city of Houston, Texas. It has something for whatever mood I'm in and I love it more with each passing day. I wake up every day and thank God that I'm a Texan.

The only feeling that's better than falling in love is logging on to itunes and finding that a song you've been looking for, for a long time, has finally been added.

The only feeling worse than falling out of love with someone is logging on to itunes and finding out the song you've been looking for hasn't been added yet.
