🎸 My Playlist 🎻
Something happened to me when I moved to Calgary in 1988 … I went from being a listener of light rock and pop to being a huge fan of country music! It all started one day when I mentioned to one of my new co-workers that I couldn’t find a decent FM station. She told me that since moving out west from Newfoundland and Labrador, she had started listening to country and I should consider giving that a try. I went home and that evening, I watched a couple of music videos on CMT … then one Saturday afternoon, I watched a few more … then a few more … then one morning, I turned the dial to Country 105 CKRY FM and never turned it back! Today, I listen to CISN 103.9 FM pretty much exclusively … ok, exclusively. I know, eh! Who’d have ever thought!
There are so many really talented country artists and musicians … and such a variety of sounds too. Some people say today’s country leans too far into the “pop music” sound. I agree, there’s a “pop” twist nowadays … but … the country sound is still there and while much country has a pop twist, most pop doesn’t have a country twist.
Now, that’s not to say that I don’t like the “twang, twang” sound because I do … alot! In my mind, there’s nothing better than the sound of a really good fiddler, a fab banjo picker or steel guitar aficionado accompanying good singer. The talent! Imagine being able to play a fiddle or a banjo like that! Gotta love it! You’ll hear that “twang, twang” in the song I’ve started my playlist with … Head Over Boots by Jon Pardi … click here to listen –> My Playlist – Head Over Boots!
