And why the country music?

Those of you who know me may be surprised by all the country music that has invaded my blog. I know, I know. I was always the person complaining about the rednecks and the honky-tonk songs. But as I've gotten wiser ... err, older ... I've become bothered by the trendy pop/rock music. I don't want to listen to base heavy songs about partying, drinking, hot scantly-clad women, sex, or evading the police. I want to believe that there's more to human relationships than selfishness and instant gratification. I want to believe in love! I want to believe that true love stays with a person, and that that love can provide both pain and comfort, regret and hope. Hence the country music. And it isn't so bad, once you get past the manure on the boots.
