Happy Thanksgiving

Hi Y'all!

Happy Thanksgiving.

I know it's been a while since I've been on here, and my posts aren't near as interesting as they used to be (if they ever were at all), but to anyone that still is out there (besides my family), thanks for stickin' around. And apologies for bringing this to you a day late.

Since it's been a while since we've talked music, I thought I would list a few of my favorites on today's radio. In no particular order. 

Tornado - The very first time I heard this song, it spoke to me. It was pure hate, wrapped into a little package named Little Big Town. I was immediately in awe of how they got such a message to come across, without yelling about it. Carrie Underwood, would have screamed it. Martina McBride would have yelled it. They, didn't.

Tornado - Little Big Town

Crying on A Suitcase - It took me a while to get this song. I knew I loved the message he was trying convey, but it was difficult for me to hear the words he was saying. A lot like when I listen to rap, I struggled to understand until I learned the words myself. 

How Country Feels - This song, to me, is what Country is. It is the pure definition of back road country. And THAT, is why I love it.

How Country Feels - Randy Houser

Hope on the Rocks - This song is the kind of music I miss hearing from Toby. End of story. :-)

Sleepy Little Town - When songs tell several different stories, I feel like I become more involved in the song. Thing song made me feel like I was actually part of this little town.

El Cerrito Place - Typical Kenny. He never disappoints. And this song is no exception. When I first heard this song, I didn't get it. I didn't understand the message he was trying to convey. JK had to explain it to me. And then, and only then, did it all come together.

Begin Again - I am a very different Taylor Swift fan. I love her music. I think she has an incredible talent in writing, and the way she gets her message through to her listeners, is amazing. With that being said, I give a lot of credit to the voice alterations that take place when she's singing on an album. Live? Totally different voice.  :-(   She reminds me a lot of Kenny Chesney. It's typical Taylor to sing about breaking up, just as its typical Kenny fashion to sing a song about sipping drinks on the beach in Mexico. This song, however, offered a more in depth look into the thoughts of a girl, whose perhaps not as scared as she thought.

That's all I've got right now. I hope everyone had a fantabulous Thanksgiving. I enjoyed a great dinner with Jeffy's family. A few surprise family friends came by to help celebrate.

Enjoy the holiday weekend!
