(She's Country by Jason Aldean)
I will be the FIRST to say that I NEVER used to like country music. I hated it, actually. It made me cringe. Living in the south gives you an appreciation for it, somehow. I NEVER thought I would ever say something like that, ever.
Country music is something I love. It's the music of the South. It makes me: feel at home, want to put my boots on, want to take a long deep breath of fresh country air, want to walk through an open field, want to go down to a farm and work really really hard, want to ride a plow through a humongous field and get all dusty and dirty, happy to have the freedom to be MYSELF.
OMG I so totally relate to what you are saying!! I remember hating the whole country and americana genre; I just couldn't bear it. Then one day it sort of clicked and not only did l like it, i actually got it. I think some of the greatest story tellers of our generation are the obscure and unknown bluegrass players of our area. Oh, btw, this is a lovely shot as well~it's going to my favorites.
