For those of us who grew up in the South but have moved elsewhere, we love our roots and all they have provided. There's a lot that I've come to appreciate about the South. But let's be honest, most of us don't want to go back to "full Southern." We're happy with just a pinch here and there to add flavor to the life we live now. If you are not a Southerner, perhaps you'll come to better appreciate the little gifts the American South has given and continues to give our culture. This blog is written by Elizabeth Bloodworth.

Kenny Rogers and Phish do “The Gambler” at Bonnaroo 2012?
I could not be happier. Giddy, even. Why the official Youtube Bonnaroo 2012 channel hasn’t uploaded the video is beyond me. Phish even noodled the melody later in their set.
Because “The Gambler” is awesome and I know every single word by heart. No matter how sophisticated and New York City I get, I will never turn my back on Classic Kenny Rogers.
But, and I say this with all love, Kenny isn’t even really recongizable as Kenny. Does anyone else feel this way? I don’t really care. I’d listen to Robot Cyborg Kenny sing “The Gambler” or “Islands in the Stream.”
