CMA week has definitely turned me into a country music fan. I know there are so many stereotypes, but give these songs a listen and maybe they’ll change your opinion on country music. If they do, and you want to catch a show sometime be sure to let me know!
“All I Want To Do” by Sugarland
The chorus just won’t leave my head. “All I want to do-o-o-o-o-o.” Give it a listen on YouTube, I think you’ll agree.
“Chicken Fried” by Zac Brown Band
Zac Brown Band blew me away during their performance Friday night at LP Field. I haven’t seen a band with that much energy and diversity in a while. (See about 4:15 minutes in). Love the lines “You know I like my chicken fried/Cold beer on a Friday night/A pair of jeans that fit just right/And the radio up.” Come on, don’t you?
“Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It” by Darius Rucker
Hootie & the Blowfish fans have followed frontman Darius Rucker embrace a solo country career and his debut album was praised by critics and fans alike. I took a personal liking to Rucker the first night of the press conference. Still new the the press conference setup, I kept raising my hand and trying to ask him a question when everyone else talked over one another jumping in over me.
What do you think? Do you like any of the songs? I’ll be introducing you to some musicians with my upcoming interviews and I’d love to hear of your favorite country musicians.
