“But You’re Not Country.”

“But You’re Not Country.”

I may not be “country,” but that definitely doesn’t mean I cannot appreciate country music. Just as every other type of music or form of art and expression, it takes a creative mind and hard work. That should be appreciated.

Not only can one appreciate music, but there are some dang good country artists and country songs. You don’t have to listen to some back country banjo jam, but turing your nose up on the rest of the genre is unfair.

I am on a country female artist kick. This has been a change in my normal country music playlists, but here are some new ones that are for sure to make you smile 🙂

  • The Champion – Carrie Underwood
  • Well Behaved Women – Madeline McDonald
  • Women – Florida Georgia Line feat. Jason Derulo
  • Sue Me – Sabrina Carpenter
  • GIRL – Maren Morris
  • High Horse – Kacey Musgraves
  • Butterflies – Kacey Musgraves
  • One More Shot – Kaylee Bell

Those are just SOME of the ones that have caught my attention recently and made me appreciate music again. There are a few that I can’t get over right now, these are them:

  • Rockin’ All Night Long – Adam Hambrick
  • My Wave -Keith Urban
  • Laid Back – Dallas Davidson

I could list some amazing songs in this post, but I am not going to do that. It would never end. I am going to say this, there is a lot more to country songs than “country.” People like this music because it is RELATABLE! Even if you have never been back roading, I am sure you can relate to “Last Time For Everything” by Brad Paisley. Country music taps into emotion behind actions and experiences, it brings out the important times in life, and often it will make you think about your own life.

I am not asking you to like it, but I am someone who believes in giving credit where credit is due. So put that in your pipe and smoke it.
