Best Albums of 2019

As usual, my “Best Albums of 2019” list is dominated by the female artists: Maren, Taylor, Miranda and P!nk all put out stellar efforts this year.

Favorite 90s Country Songs

Adam got me SiriusXM for Christmas and I’ve been loving the Prime Country station that plays 80s and 90s country. That was mostly what I listened to during my middle school years. Until a band called Hanson came along in 1997, that is… My 90s country nostalgia made me think compiling a list of my all time favorite 90s country songs would be fun, so here goes! I’m limiting it to a Top 20 and […]
