Even in a great relationship, you will have disagreements. That’s why you need to learn to fight fair. Paul addresses it this way: ‘…speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ…’ If you grew up in a home filled with tension and angry words, you may find yourself trying to avoid arguments at any cost. But silence doesn’t solve problems; it just allows them to become unspoken wedges between you.
What should you do? First, try to understand the difference between healthy and unhealthy conflict. In an unstable marriage, hostility is aimed at your spouse’s soft underbelly with comments like, ‘You never do anything right!’ and ‘Why did I marry you in the first place?’ and ‘You’re getting more like your mother every day!’ Such remarks strike at the very heart of your mate’s self-worth. Healthy conflict, by contrast, remains focused on the issues that cause disagreement. For example: ‘It upsets me when you don’t tell me you’re going to be late for dinner,’ or ‘I was embarrassed when you made me look foolish at the party last night.’Can you hear the difference? Even though the two approaches may be equally contentious, the first assaults the dignity of your spouse while the second addresses the source of conflict. When you learn to make this important distinction, you can work through your disagreements without wounding and insulting each other. Plus, when gaining the upper hand leaves your spouse feeling wounded and upset, you both lose. Remember: when someone feels loved and valued, they’re generally more open and receptive to what you have to say.
Willie Nelson‘s latest album, For The Good Times: A Tribute To Ray Price, will be available on Friday, September 16th.
On his new album, Willie has teamed up with a pair of longtime friends–producer Fred Foster and conductor/arranger Bergen White–who, like Nelson, are American country music veterans with deep connections to the legendary Ray Price. Foster and White worked together to complete Ray Price’s final album, Beauty Is…, at Nashville’s Ocean Way Studios, where Willie Nelson has returned to create the magic of For The Good Times: A Tribute To Ray Price.
For The Good Times: A Tribute To Ray Price celebrates the wide-reaching impact and influence of Ray Price on American pop and country music, from Price’s hallmark lush orchestral arrangements (presaging “countrypolitan”) to the patented “Ray Price Shuffle,” the groundbreaking 4/4 walking bass line which transformed honky-tonk and country-western swing music in 1950s on hits like “Crazy Arms”.
Providing musical backup for Willie on six of the album’s tracks–“Invitation To The Blues,””Heartaches By The Numbers,””Crazy Arms,””City Lights,””I’ll Be There” and “Don’t You Ever Get Tired Of Hurting Me”–Willie is joined by The Time Jumpers, the Grammy-nominated Western Swing dream team comprised of Vince Gill (electric and acoustic guitar, harmony vocals), Andy Reiss (electric guitar), Larry Franklin (fiddle), Joe Spivey (fiddle), Kenny Sears (fiddle), Brad Albin (bass), Billy Thomas (drums), Jeff Taylor (piano and accordion), Paul Franklin (pedal steel) and Willie’s Family Band harmonica player Mickey Raphael.
For the orchestral tracks on For The Good Times: A Tribute To Ray Price, the Nashville String Machine, a full ensemble featuring violins, violas, cellos, string basses, sax, flute and oboe, accompanies Willie.
A visionary and iconoclastic artist, Ray Price defined and shifted the course of American country music over the course of his career. In the 1950s and 1960s, he kept grassroots country sounds alive through the infusion of rock ‘n’ roll and pop music elements, going so far as to utilize drums at a time when the Grand Ole Opry had banned them from its stage. By the late 1960s and early 1970s, Price became one of the godfathers of “countrypolitan,” combining lush orchestral arrangements with smooth-as-silk crooning. Ray Price’s music connected honky-tonk to big band to rock ‘n’ roll to country swing to pop. America’s musical landscape would look and sound very different without the contributions of Ray Price.
The profound musical relationship between Willie Nelson and Ray Price goes back to 1960, when Nelson, an aspiring singer-songwriter, moved to Nashville to further his career. Willie’s composition, “Night Life,” became Ray Price’s theme music, the song he’d use to open his shows. As Willie’s star rose in the country music firmament, he continued to collaborate with Price, releasing the albums San Antonio Rose (1980), Run That by Me One More Time (2003) and Last of the Breed (2007), a trio album with Merle Haggard. Ray Price made an appearance, singing “Cold War with You,”on Willie’s 2012 Legacy album Heroes.
For the Good Times: A Tribute to Ray Price debuts Willie’s new interpretations of 12 songs Price made famous, including “Heartaches by the Number,” “Crazy Arms,” “Night Life,” “Faded Love” and “For the Good Times.”

The Scoop: After growing up in the Northeast and honing her stage skills in New York City, Parker McKay moved to Nashville in 2014 to pursue a career in country music. In her two years in Music City, Parker has written more than 150 songs, strumming her guitar and singing at numerous songwriter rounds, including gracing the stage with artists such as Maren Morris and Natalie Hemby. On August 12, Parker will release her self-titled debut EP, which features six songs that she co-wrote, including the single “Rolling Stone.”
Carpool Karaoke: “More than any person I know, I was exposed to music by my mom just singing in the car. I know that’s a memory almost everyone has, but I feel like we did that so much more often. I guess it’s because we were driving all the time. My mom was a church singer and my dad actually has this really beautiful voice that he’ll joke-sing Frank Sinatra but he sounds incredible. Growing up, my mom and I listened to Sheryl Crow, Faith Hill, the Dixie Chicks, and I listened to all the divas like Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston. I always just imitated them. I grew up imitating those strong ’90s females like Sheryl and Bonnie Raitt. I kinda built my musical sensibilities from that.”
Life’s a Stage: “I’ve wanted to be a singer since I could form a thought—that or a figure skater [laughing]. I always knew I wanted to sing. It was never a question for me. I did my first talent show at age 8 and ever since then, anytime I could get a microphone in my hand, I did. And I did choir and theater—I studied theater in New York. I’m so glad I did because it has given me such a sense of empowerment because I’m so used to accessing my emotions and you have to have a huge stage presence when you’re in a show. So it’s given me a lot of confidence and let me kind of grow a stage persona.”
Making the Rounds: “I went to every open mic and met everyone I could when I moved to Nashville. And I asked them to introduce me to friends. I fell into a cool group of people. My most important thing was I felt like I needed to write every single day. For the first year, I wrote six days a week. It’s amazing because writing is like a muscle that you have to use. One day I wrote this one song, and it just started making sense for me. I understand the structure. Now I can crank them out and get them done a lot more efficiently. The process is such a groove thing.”
Finding Her Sound: “I think a big mistake artists can make is to put out music just to have content. And a lot of artists are striving to sound like what’s on the radio, and I think that’s a big mistake. You can get lost in the shuffle, even if you are something brilliant and amazing and new. I wanted this album to open a door to the evolution of country. I think a lot of really amazing country elements have been lost lately in a lot of popular music, and I want to bring back some of the rock sensibilities a little bit and the rawness and grittiness of that. I want it to be real and new.”
Like a Rolling Stone: “The idea for my single ‘Rolling Stone’ came about because I had a couple of friends [T.J. and John Osborne of Brothers Osborne] get nominated for a Grammy and I was just sitting there thinking about that one day. About how hard they’ve worked and the road it took them to get there, and how long it’s been for them. It’s just such a huge, iconic thing, and then I was thinking about some of the other things that happen like that—Grammys, gold records, big milestones like being on the cover of Rolling Stone—and it was one of those songs that just came to me, the melody and lyrics. I went into a co-write with it that day and it just came out. It’s about the love of music, but more so about how it’s a driving force in life and nothing is as important as your passion.”

My 7:OO am train from Carmel to New York City was quiet as riders followed the etiquette of the morning compute on talking on cell phone or to others catching up on sleep. Grand Central Terminal was bustling with the people crisscrossing the station floor on the way to their destinations. I headed south on Madison Avenue, walking eight city blocks to the Guideposts editorial office.
I was just a few steps away from the building when my cell phone rang. “Honey I was in a car accident,” my wife said. The city became silent and came to a standstill . I could feel my heart beating. I took a deep breath and asked, “Are you okay?”‘ “I’m fine ,” Elba said. “I’m just a bit shaken up.” I could feel the tension in my muscles relax. She explained that on her way back home after dropping me off at the train station, the driver of a van lost control on the slippery road, crossed into her lane and slammed into the car. “She’s ok too,” Elba said.
Earlier in our marriage, when I was young and foolish and in a similar situation, the first words out of my mouth were, “How was the car” This time I knew better.That evening at home Elba said, “Thanks, “Thank you for asking me how I was doing when I called you. It meant a lot that you though of me first.” This time around, I got it right.
Lord make sure that my love ones are always first in my heart—Pablow Diaz

TV CREW ALMOST CATCHES ON FIRE Many of us watch in awe of the massive fire that engulfs the Squirrel Mountain Valley neighborhood in Lake Isabella California. We pray for torrential rains to scuff out the blaze. KTLA TV CH 5 reporter Steve Kuzj and cameraman Victor Vargas finish their live shot for the 11 pm news when flames come within about 30 yards of their van. Reporter Steve Kuzj and cameraman Victor Vargas scramble to get their equipment into the truck and beat a hasty retreat to get away safely.
1996 THE YEAR THAT CHANGES RADIO FOREVER During my time as a DJ on Country KILT FM Houston, TX from 1991-96 a lot goes on. The Telcom Law of 1996 opens radio wide open to many vultures. Bankers gobble up as many radio stations as possible. In 1995, KILT FM’s Westinghouse grabs CBS Radio, plus Infinity. By 1996 things are so bad that is my final year in radio. Clear Channel has over 1500 radio stations. Capstar merges into co-owned Chancellor Media and later becomes part of Clear Channel.
CBS RADIO IN GRIDLOCK During my two times as a DJ on KILT FM here in Houston, TX a whole lot transpires. In January 1981 Album Rock KILT FM flips to Country and quickly rises to #1 and remains in the top spot for over 10 years. In 1995, Westinghouse (Group W) buys CBS Radio. In 1996, Group W falls under the CBS Radio umbrella. That’s when I exit KILT FM for the final time. In 2016, third-largest radio group CBS Radio worth about $2.9 billion goes on sale – but no takers for its 117 radio stations in 26 major markets.

TRIVIA ANSWER: On July 20, 1872, Mahlon Loomis receives a patent for wireless technology which heralds the beginning of radio. He is earliest inventor of wireless communication (patent #129,971). Mahlon claims to transmit signals in October 1866 between two Blue Ridge Mountaintops 14 miles apart in Virginia using kites as antennas. Loomis is the first wireless telegrapher. Dentist Mahlon Loomis also invents artificial teeth (patent #10,847 May 2, 1854).
LESLIE WAYNE HODGES [ex KRCS DJ] (Lake Livingston, TX) In 1995 bought Lynn’s book; ” Last Great Days Of Radio” Lynn talks of his Days inside WACO AM Radio in the 1980’s. I was with WACO AM April to May 1976, Ron Crowder the new P.D. Had just come in from KSWS in Lawton. While Ron Crowder is airing Paul Harvey at 12:09 p.m. Ron hires me for weekends that in two weeks will go full time Midnight to Six. That changed two weeks later when as Ron tells me in The production room that a friend of one of the guys rode in on a tricycle from Victoria and he will now be full time after midnight. Ron says since he is new in WACO he wants to get along with the guys and that I can remain weekends. So why is Ron Crowder in Waco and not still in Lawton?
