singerI’ve probably blogged and I know I’ve definitely mentioned on “Now Hear This Entertainment” before that, say, 17-year olds shouldn’t be singing songs about life experiences that they couldn’t have had yet.  But what about going the other way, when a, say, 55-year old is singing songs that are very popular by the Ed Sheerans and the Maroon 5s of the world?  Unfortunately, there’s a strong chance of it just not being be
