“Music has always been a matter of Energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel. I have always needed Fuel. I am a serious consumer. On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio.”
– Hunter S. Thompson
All kinds of music are all right with me – I decided to take today to share with you some of my favorite country songs. Please, feel free to list yours in the comments!
Friends in Low Places – Garth Brooks
Funny story – I was never a Garth Brooks fan until I went to one of those “lookalike shows”. The fake Garth Brooks sang this song, and I had to look it up when I got home.
Forever and Ever, Amen – Randy Travis
I discovered this song when I lived in New Orleans. It’s a simple, to the point love song.
Rough and Ready – Trace Adkins
I think the title says it all.
Redneck Woman – Gretchen Wilson
I like everything about this song.
King of the Road
I know it’s an old Roger Miller classic, but the combination of Randy Travis’ twang and Josh Turner’s buttery deep voice is to good not to share.
