Count me among the new fans of country music.
My music has always been AC/DC, the Stones, Thorogood, and the like. But something in just the last couple of years has been drawing me more and more toward country. I cain't 'splain it. But I'm liking it more and more.
It's got to have 'twang....
Well, now the new band Sugarland has me crazy about country again. Their first hit video, Baby Girl, has climbed all the way to #1 on CMT.
We're just hours away from the primetime Academy of Country Music Awards telecast on CBS. Check your local listings for Tuesday, May 17th. An all-star lineup is expected to be there, including Sugarland, Toby Keith, Sara Evans, Montgomery Gentry, Big & Rich, Reba, etc.
Count me in as a relatively new country fan too.
Lots of reasons--- but I've found that while the music is OK, it's the lyrics that always grab me.
Like Trace Akins said the "songs about me".
