So there is a country song I like

I'm shocked to even write that. I can't stand country. Really can't. I can listen to all the old time big band stuff with Dino, the rock with Spanky, the showtunes with Miley and the classical with Sarah. But I can't listen to that country stuff with. At least all of it but one song.

The other night I turned on the Grammys to try and act under 35. Didn't work too well, I was lost and confused during most of it. Then The Zac Brown Band took the stage and they were really good--guitar playing that really blew me away. Kind of like a Lynard Skynard sort of Southern Rock.

And it was a lot of fun.

The next day I shocked my whole family and downloaded one of the songs, adding it to the 'morning glory' playlist and the 'hanging out' playlist and yes even the 'clean-up time' playlist. The kids even liked it. And they hate country just like me. Well we did. I just may download this entire cd and enjoy it with some Shiner in my Wranglers and Ropers (OK, more like Joe's Jeans and Sudini Italian boots but close enough, right?).

That's it! Turn in your Texas Flag and cowboy boots! How can you live in Texas and not like country music?? I guess there are more and more folks like you nowadays. hee hee

I love that song too! I also love Rascall Flatts. My favorite song is "Mayberry" because I used to live in a small town and it is EXACTLY like they describe it in the song and makes me cry every time I hear it!
