Confession Friday

This picture has nothing to do with the post. I just really miss the beach and am dreaming of summer....

I am copying this idea from another blog I read. Confessional Friday. I love it. In case you just got really excited and were thinking that I'd be posting my confession list...the one I read to Christ and in front of my priest...well, sorry to burst your bubble. It won't be THAT list but I will be confessing something each Friday.

Here's my confession for today. I have been listening to country music. Yep. And I really like it. I mean I REALLY like it. It began innocently enough one day while driving in the car I happened upon the local country music station. It's "young" country you know. I really liked it and I kept listening to it. Then I started downloading songs I heard on the radio onto my iPod and listening at the gym. Next thing you know....I've gone country.

My husband was/is horrified. He wondered if I was mentally...or if I had someone in my life that was a bad influence. Nope. I just like it. He just shakes his head in despair. Should he be surprised? I also totally love Disco!

Why do I like it? The songs are fun to sing, the lyrics in some of the songs are hilarious! Who can't use a good laugh? I just heard this song today called I'm Still a Guy by Brad Paisley and it cracked me up. I think Cam would really like it if he'd just listen to the lyrics. They could be written for him...or by him. Here's some of the song.

These days there's dudes gettin' facials, manicured, waxed and botoxed. With deep spray-on tans and creamy lotiony hands you can't grip a tackle box.

Yeah, with all of these men linein' up to get neutered it's hip now to be feminized. I don't highlight my hair, I've still got a pair.Yeah, honey I'm still a guy.

Oh my eyebrows ain't plucked there's a gun in my truck. Oh thank god, I'm still a guy.


  1. I have come to love contemporary Country Western with all the good lines "If you're going through hell, keep on moving" and "standing on the front porch looking in" and more, many more! I started listening toit about five years ago when I was in my car a lot doing lots of work-related travel. I join you in confessing that I really, really love country music. (I happen to know that one of your SILs does, too)

  2. I think country music is fun, too :) "We don't have to fight, all I have to do is say "Bless your heart..." right now, "Hello World..." is one amazing song as I am watching my brother go from being in a coma to walking and regaining his life. God is awesome !

  3. Becky, I confess that I like some of the country music that's out there. I used to LOVE disco so much that my nickname was "Disco Dana" back in the day! Years ago, Gary and I had to drive from Texas to Washington. We made an agreement that we would switch off which music cassette to listen to. He got SO tired of Ronnie Milsap and Glenn Campbell--ha! Hey, my cousin, Tim Storey (I interviewed him about his cancer experience on my blog) is a musician and wrote a great country song called, "Love Me Right Now." Check it out at this website where you can read the lyrics and listen to it . . . I hope it makes it to radio play!

  4. You are not alone--your story sounds exactly like mine. I was never a country fan and then I moved to Santa Barbara and worked at a restaurant in the mountains. Lots of people listen to country in the mountains (ranchers, etc). It began so innocently. Now it is most of my music. I like it because it still tells a story. I like music and songs that are about stories. That seems to me what makes great music.
