As an unabashed country music fan I am slowly spreading the love through my family. Half the buttons on Erik’s car radio are now tuned to country because he knows I love it; even Ben has learned to appreciate country’s clever lyrics and cheerful rhythms.
Cute little Taylor Swift is a new favorite of ours. We did have to ban her song, “Picture to Burn” because Mary and I got really into the chorus, “I hate that stupid old pick-up truck you never let me drive…”
The nice little girls in the neighborhood don’t say “stupid” or “hate” and we are trying to be more like them.
But I am completely smitten with I’m Only Me When I’m With You. This love song is devoid of any teenage Romeo; it’s written to her family– mom, dad, siblings. Check it out; feel the love.
