Expand Your Musical Palate

country music


Are you one of those people who say, “I hate country music.” If so, you are missing out. Country ain’t what it used to be. Yes, there are still lots of trailers and broken down pick ups and cans of beer, but it is so much more than that. When my kids say they hate reading, after I hit them over the head with a book, I say, “That’s like saying you don’t like food. There are so many types of books, you just have to find the one you like.” The same is true of country music. The artists whose work falls under the genre of Country are more varied than you can imagine. So, break out your boots, pop open a cold one and give country music a chance.
