I’m a total country music geek.

Apparently, I get this from my dad, although I don’t remember ever hearing him listen to music at all. My older sisters tell me he did like country, though, so we’ll blame him.

For a while, I thought it was just me who liked country.

Then I went to Country2Country because one of my fave country stars, Luke Bryan, was headlining. Let’s just say I wasn’t too impressed to discover that my guilty pleasure turned out belong to a whole lot of other people too!

(The highlight was Luke calling out to the massive audience asking where all his farmers were at… at a gig in London)

As well as Luke Bryan, I’m a particular fan of Brandy Clark and The Band Perry, and I just discovered The Highwomen.

Of course, I like Carrie Underwood too. I listened to The Champion as my pump-up song for a few weeks, on repeat, every journey I made.

There’s just something about this music that hits me with all the feels and makes me yearn for a Stetson, a horse and an open field…
