Oh Heavenly Day – Patti Griffin

8 Comments »

song peck of the month

Here’s a great song that is especially perfect for Valentine’s Day, “Oh, Heavenly Day” by singer/songwriter and musician Patti Griffin – who says this song is the very first love song she ever wrote…. dedicated to her dog. She must’ve really loved that dog, because this song is really beautiful.

Patty Griffin is an American Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter and musician born in 1964. She’s known for her raw songwriting style that centers around the folk music genre.

In 2007, Americana Music Association granted Griffin the “Artist of the Year” award and her album, Children Running Through, won for “Best Album”.

In 2011, Griffin’s album entitled Downtown Church won the Grammy Award for Best Traditional Gospel Album.

According to Robert Plant’s official website, the two award winning musicians recently wed. But, let me tell you, it’s not really true… at least not yet! Plant and Griffin have been dating for over a year, spending half of their time together in Austin, Texas.

Robert Plant (of Led Zeppelin… our fave!) and Patti Griffin are planning a Band of Joy album set to come out this year, 2013. It’s been said that is will be “far, far out with psychedelic pedal steel and all sorts of stuff.” They are also part of a “spacey, trippy” group called the Sensational Shape Shifters, who have been performing since last summer. Keep your eyes peeled for them.

    We are big Led Zeppelin fans and big Patti Griffin fans, so when we heard about the Robert Plant and Patti Griffin hooking up, we were pretty tickled!

    Beautiful song! Engagement to Robert Plant makes me like her and the song even more. I wonder if she had a Black Dog? Thanks for sharing.

    Sylvia: When my dog died on May 1st four years ago, I was brokenhearted, almost not wanting to go on! One of my friends gave me a CD, wrapped in a bit of newspaper, with a song on it that she said I should listen to. Well, I knew I could not listen to that song right then – whatever it was – and I so I never opened it. When I read your blog post today and listened to the song written for her dog, I wondered if maybe that was the song that my friend gave me. I dug it out, opened the newspaper, and on the CD was written Heavenly Day by Patty Griffin.

    I had to laugh reading Chris’ comment. I’m sure there’s a black dog somewhere in their history. Beautiful voice…
