Thanks for that, Nashville.

Nashville. Yep, that’s the name of the capital of Tennessee, but I know it better as the name of my new favorite TV show (currently on summer hiatus.)  I was hesitant about watching the series initially because I am was NOT a country music fan (no offense to those who are/have always been.)  Then a friend of mine (also not a country music fan) convinced me that the show was too good to miss.  Long story short, I caught up with the first half of the season and began avidly watching every Wednesday night through the rest of the semester.  You can catch up on season 1 of the show here.

So… here comes the crazy part. Brace yourselves (that’s what I should have warned my husband before I told him)… all of a sudden I’m finding myself enjoying obsessing over country music.  WHAT??!?  I feel like I woke up a different person one morning.  For those of you reading this and wondering why this warrants a blog post, you obviously don’t me or my music tastes that well.  I’ve always had many friends who love country music but that is was not me!

So what does this have to do with my new fave show “Nashville”?  Well, obviously, I blame the show!  I started liking the music on the show and it went all down hill from there.

Now for all you country music lovers, and in defense of the genre, I never absolutely hated all country music.  I’ve actually always enjoyed Carrie Underwood’s music and could handle some “light” country including Carrie and Lady Antebellum.

But now my always existing Carrie Underwood Pandora radio station gets played nearly every day…and I find myself “thumbs-upping” many songs of the Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Miranda Lambert, and Eli Young Band variety.  Oh, and plenty of soundtrack music from my fave new show and the changer of my music tastes – thanks for that, “Nashville.” 😉
