Just after turning 40, folk singer Matt Watroba suddenly came to the realization that, contrary to almost every message sent in our culture, there are some great things about getting older. In the middle of a concert at a senior center in his home state of Michigan, the idea for The Best is Yet to Be was born. "I began singing several songs about aging and was amazed at the audience response," Watroba recalls. "I was singing about things that people thought about but rarely verbalized. There are some great things about getting older!" As a radio host, Watroba knew the power of stringing together songs around a theme. The result is a lively and touching collection of songs that will reach your heart, make you smile, and get you singing. Joining Watroba on The Best is Yet to Be are some of the finest folk musicians in the country, including Anne Hills and Josh White Jr.
