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 […]

Concert List

 I’ve been going to live concerts since before I can remember. My parents took me along to Bluegrass and Irish festivals almost before I could say the word “music”  and going to live shows has sort of become a part of who I am.

So the Grammy Awards were last night and while I normally post a recap or reaction to my favorite award show of the year, this time I am going to digress and talk about the arrogant, egotistical train-wreck that is Kanye West. I am not much of a rap fan – I fully admit that, but I do respect the fact that Mr. West makes music that’s above your general run of the mill rap […]
