I'm A Little Bit Country

For me, summer=country music. I don't know what it is, but for most of the year, I listen to my CDs, such as Jason Mraz, Jack Johnson, We The Kings, among others. However, once the weather starts getting hot (which is pretty early here in Georgia), I feel the need to listen to my favorite country station (Kicks 101.5) and load my iPod down with country songs.

I also watch the country music award shows. Last night was the CMT Music Awards, and I, of course, watched it. Overall, it seemed kind of awkward (nothing like the CMAs), but I think that had a lot to do with the fact the Kid Rock was hosting (seriously....who thought that was a good idea?). However, I was very happy with the performances and the winners. I was especially happy to see these people win awards:

Lady Antebellum: Group Video of the Year ("Need You Now")

Carrie Underwood: Video of the Year ("Cowboy Casanova"), CMT Performance of the Year ("Temporary Home" from "Invitation Only")

Keith Urban: Male Video of the Year ("Til Summer Comes Around")
side note: I love his accent. I could have listened to him talk the rest of the night. :)

Miranda Lambert: Female Video of the Year ("White Liar")

And my favorite award-winner of the night........

Georgia boy Luke Bryan: USA Weekend Breakthrough Video of the Year ("Do I")
another side note: I am in love with this man. I do not care that he is married and is expecting his second child. He is gorgeous and, ohmigah......he is from south Georgia and has the accent to prove it. *sigh*

It's a good thing my boyfriend is secure in our relationship and knows I love him....otherwise, my comments about Luke Bryan probably wouldn't be appreciated. :p

Country music is quite possibly my favorite genre of music. It's the music I grew up on. When I got to middle school, I started getting into pop music (I was a HUGE NSYNC fan back in the day), and then in high school, I had a phase where I listened to rock/alternative music. Now, I pretty much listen to anything (except rap and hip hop.....I got enough of that at the school dances in high school). But, when I listen to country music, it's like coming home for me. It takes me back and makes me think about my future all at the same time. It's a comfort to me, and I have to have it in my life.

I need to plan a return trip to Nashville now. I am missing that city big time right now.
