Modern technology is changing the way people
view, listen, think and create music.  The
internet continues to significantly influence the music industry
in this modern time.  From Twitter
exclusive, on to Facebook live streaming 
to intimate Instagrams, artists can really connect with their fans and
followers.  A lot of country music
singers learned to embrace the interactive elements to obtain a larger and
stronger crowd.  They can surf their way
to the top of the music charts as long as they know the ins and outs of
technology and their target areas.  Of
course, there’s no denying that  w
maintaining a steady web presence is important for most artists’ promotional
arsenal, it is more vital to have live shows or opportunities to be
face-to-face with the fans which gives a lasting impression.  For Garth Brooks, it’s the face-to-face-
connections that has the most value.  It’s
his way to ramp up fan interaction and say thanks to his loyal followers.  He has great progress in country music while still keeping
firmly attached to its roots.  He is still the key influence to a lot of
country music singers.
Garth Brooks, the
undeniably iconic superstar in Country Music sums up his success in the album
“Man Against Machine”.  It is a loving
reminder of pouring your heart into pursuing your dream.  Whatever field you are in, you have to be
willing to make sacrifices, do the hard work , sweat for it, fight for it and
overcome challenges. 
“Mom” written
by  Don Sampson and Wynn Varble is
incredibly touching and truly captures the love both God and the expectant Mom have
for the baby who is about to be welcomed to the family.  It captured my heart when I heard it.  Indeed, music is a powerful influence in
people’s lives. “People Loving People” is taking a step in comforting and
uniting people during a crisis.  It
strongly points us to God’s second greatest commandment, to love one
another.  It reminds me of Michael
Jackson’s song that goes, “There are ways to get there if you care enough for
the living…Make a little space, make a better place…Heal the world, make it a
better place for you and for me and the entire human race.”  In other words, let’s make Love a
priority.  Every response, every act of
goodwill, every thought must go through the fine filter of love.  The song emphasizes the importance of love
and distinguishes the nature of love.
