Today I spent several hours alone painting the new house. The clearest station I could tune to from the middle of nowhere was our local country station. Don't get me wrong, I still love country music. My I-Tunes list is largely country or Christian, and my I-Pod is saturated with up-beat country music to run to. HOWEVER... I was very happy that my ears were the only ones that heard the new country hits today! Several of the songs were about one-night-stands, a couple centered around alcohol addictions, and still others were sounds about women pining away for jerky lovers.
A couple of the songs I remember from today:
"There is no Arizona" Jamie O'Neal
"I'm just talking about tonight" Toby Keith (I could do a whole post on him!)
I'm not sure if I'm just more aware of content now that my kids are getting older or if my normal Christian radio sets a higher standard when it comes to lyrics, but I DO NOT plan to start tuning into country radio regularly any time soon!
