There are few songs out there that resonate deeply with me.
The ones that do depict a life of travel, being away from loved ones or the wide open road.
Most recently, Jason Aldean's song Fly Over States has struck a chord with me.
I constantly hear people complain about how boring a city, or even worse, an entire state is.
How shallow and naive of them.
While griping, they tend to mention states like Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa and more.
I couldn't disagree with these complaints more!
Every state in this country is just beautiful to drive through.
When up in a plane, you look out your window, see plots of land and think how boring.
But seeing these small towns, America's heartland, from the ground is eye opening, life changing and just plain magnificent.
Writing off an entire state for having corn fields, mom/pop diners and farmers plowing on the side of the highway is a poor reflection of you, not the state itself.
This is America.
Please take time to read this recount of a small town that I drove through last summer.
