Musica en Martes #2

Country music is non-existent in Spain. Which is truly a shame. The majority know who TSwift is, and don’t get me wrong, I love her and I’ll probably buy 1989 soon…but she’s not the country music I’m talking about when I say I love country.

Give me some Tim McGraw, Rascal Flatts, FGL, Jason Aldean, Keith Urban, Luke Byran, Hunter Hayes, Lady Antebellum. Give me a country bar with line dancing. Yes, yes, yes!!!

Right now I’m listening to country and it’s filling me with a mix of emotions. It definitely reminds me of summer. That’s when we go to as many concerts as we can fit into our budgets and schedules. As much as I love country music, I only have a few friends that share this genre love. Makes our friendships just a little bit sweeter. Listening to country music relaxes me when I’ve had a tough day with the kiddos. It’s so familiar and I love being able to sing along. Even though it’s a comfort, it also makes me sad. I miss the days of summer at concerts. I miss my friends that share my love for country music. It fills me with memories that bring happiness and sadness at the same time. So this is the conflict I have when I listen to country music. This is also the reason I don’t listen to it daily. I think it would play into my homesickness more than I care to imagine. Regardless of the homesick feelings, I am glad that country music reminds me of home and that such fond memories are associated with it. Can’t wait to be back stateside and hit my first country concert!

Do you have a genre, artist, song that is full of memories? Good or bad? What do you do when you hear that music?
