On the Light Side - Country Divorce Tunes

Journal Categories

Many years ago, Kathy Revell, the daughter of Retired Judge Richard Revell (she was also his secretary at the time) circulated this country divorce song quiz. We have added to her list of love gone wrong tunes starting with #32, following her list of artists. Divorce is about as sad a field of law as an attorney sees, so you have to find a little humor where you can! We never run out of projects, but one that has been on the list for a long time is to download these songs. Maybe this blog will be the perfect place for such a repertoire.
