This classic country song was originally recorded by The Judds. It was released in 1986 and went straight to the top of the charts.
Over the years, the song has become a beloved favorite covered by countless artists.
“Grandpa, tell me about the good ol days
Sometimes it feels like this world’s gone crazy
And Grandpa, take me back to yesterday
when the line between right and wrong don’t seem so hazy “
You may recognize Dave Fenley as a contestant on Season 8 of America’s Got Talent. This talented musician made it all the way to the semi-finals before being eliminated. But he made a lasting impression on the audience and music industry. He also competed on The Voice, where he was a part of Team Blake.
Since his time on AGT and The Voice, Dave has shared the stage with huge names such as Dwight Yoakham and Dierks Bentley. Now, he’s belting out the words to a classic with the beloved words of ‘Grandpa (Tell Me 'Bout The Good Old Days).’
“And Grandpa, let’s wander back into the past and paint me the picture of love long ago
Did lovers really fall in love to stay
and stand beside each other come what may
Was a promise something someone really kept
not just something they would say and then forget
Did families really bow their heads to pray
Did Daddy’s really never go away”
As we walk through difficult times, it’s nice to look back on fond memories that bring smiles to our faces. This song is just the step back in time that I needed to hear today.
America’s Got Talent alumni Dave Fenley gives us a much-needed dose of nostalgia with ‘Grandpa (Tell Me 'Bout The Good Old Days).’
