A life without music is no life at all. Playing a musical instrument can change that. Not only is it something that can be taught, but it brings joy to a person’s life.
Think about it, every musician will have a song that they would love to be able to play but can’t for some reason. Maybe it’s too hard. By keeping the song in their mind as they develop and putting in the practice, they eventually can do it. Just imagine how good they feel once they’ve played it. It’s a sense of accomplishment. By learning an instrument, not only does it help improve concentration, but it can also build future camaraderies.
There’s no age limit when it comes to playing an instrument. Take this family member of country artist Josh Turner’s. His wife’s 98-year-old grandmother recently played on the Grand Ole Opry stage for the first time. Lois Cunningham was a natural as she played “How Great Thou Art.”
There was not a dry eye in the crowd.
All The Feels
Cunningham played like she’s been doing it for 50 years. That’s the beauty of music, it keeps the brain sharp. If Turner ever needs a backup pianist for any of his tours, he knows who to call.
Make sure to watch the video in its entirety to see how the audience reacted. This had to be the highlight of her life because she just played on a stage where Dolly Parton, Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks, Brad Paisley and even Rascal Flatts once stood.
We expect her to be on that piano playing “Happy Birthday” when she turns 100. God bless her!

On the contrary, most country stars give off the impression they are “one of us,” driving trucks, donning jeans on stage and writing songs about having a good time – yes, sometimes heartbreak – and most fans of the genre feel much more connected to Nashville’s brightest than Hollywood’s infamous.
So you may be shocked to find out that country music stars live just as lavishly as their mainstream counterparts – just not nestled in the Hollywood Hills.
