Song of the Week

Friday Song Addiction: Country Music Edition

If you don’t know by now, I’ve become a hardcore country music fan ever since attending the CMA Music Festival last June in Nashville. While chatting with up-and-coming country singer Erica Nicole today (check out her breathtaking version of “Hungry Eyes” on her Web site), we both agreed on how country music has this addictive quality where you can completely feel the pain, happiness, tragedy and sorrow within the song. Maybe that’s why I love the genre so much.

Yesterday, Taylor Swift’s music video for “Fearless” debuted on and I’ve had Josh Turner’s latest single “Why Don’t We Just Dance” on repeat all week. Listening to Lady Antebellum is always a good time too, so rather than choose one of my country favorites this week I have three for you to check out. Enjoy!
