One of my "loves"!

 Music is a very, very important to me.  I love, love, love music.  I have always loved music.  I couldn't help it. Some of my earliest memories are of sitting in my Pa's chair singing with him.  He was a Bass Singer in a Gospel Quartet and he had me singing with him and attending singing schools and singings, and directing when I was a preschooler! And my Daddy his son has always loved music , too. So, I come by my love of music honestly!  It's just in my genes!!

However, I venture to say that my musical taste is much different than my Pa's or my Daddy's tastes.  My taste in music is incredibly eclectic.  I  like everything from pop to rock {especially if it's from the 90's or before} to some rap .  All kids of contemporary christian, christian rock, gospel and good old hymns.  Even bluegrass, jazz and oldies. 

Besides gospel (the southern sort that my Pa sang) and church hymns, the genre that I've longest loved is country music. I especially love the country music of my childhood but a lot of today's country is great music.  Country music often has incredible harmonies and there is nothing I love more than good harmonies!  {Which definitely comes from my early introduction to southern gospel and singing schools!}

This is one of my favorite's right now...... 

I would almost betcha that they will be playing this song on the CMA awards this coming Wednesday night.  I will be watching.  Will you?
