I love music and I love Itunes and my Ipod. My tastes in music are varied: bluegrass, classical, gospel, rock...and my favorite, country. These days I listen, mostly, to country, but when I was younger and my hair was longer I was heavily into Rock 'n Roll. I listened to the Beatles, Bob Seger, Eric Clapton, Blackfoot, .38 Special, Boston, Skynyrd, and the Eagles...and that's just scratching the surface. But as I got older I started leaning more and more back towards country music.
See, I grew up in a home where I heard songs like Your Cheating Heart, Tennessee Waltz, Bonaparte's Retreat, Ring of Fire, & Crazy on a regular basis. Mom also loved the Ames Brothers...I can't name any of their songs, but oh well.
Country music, for the most part, is open and honest, the message is straightforward, and there's usually something for everyone. If you were to stick your head in my front door you'd most likely find me listening to one of these 12 tunes. In fact, as I'm writing this I'm listening to #9 on my list.
