So let's start off the week with a question. Why do you love (or not love) country music? Where did it all start for you? Was it a music video, recommedation from a friend, or purely an accident?
If you're like me, you grew up with no other choice but to love country music. I was surrounded by it the minute I was born, and it's never gone away since.
I grew up with 90s CMT country music videos on the television: I would dance around with my plastic guitar singing along to Alan Jackson's "Don't Rock the Jukebox."
Years later my little sister would be dancing in the middle of the living room to Shania Twain's "Don't Be Stupid (You Know I Love You)." Country music was played at holidays, on weeknights and weekends.
My dad even won a second date with my mom when he was able to guess who was singing a song on the radio (it was Patsy Cline.)
So why do you love or not love country music? And don't forget to check back all week for more country topics!
Here's a video to start your week off right, my favorite from my childhood, and such an appropriate song for this week!
