You would think that because I grew up in Nashville, TN, I would love country music. Au contraire, at least for the majority of my life. For whatever reason, I tried to distance myself from anything that had to do with the genre of music that my hometown is so well known for. I think a part of it was that when I met people from other areas of the country, I used to feel as though they looked down on people from the South for one reason or another. Country music, at least to me, seemed to embody all the negative stereotypes you could image for anyone living in the Southern United States. However, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized that not only have I found a sense of pride in where I come from, but I also have discovered that I might actually like some country music. One such band is the one printed on my t-shirt, Blackberry Smoke. Their music is a bit more Southern Rock than country, but hey, baby steps right? If you are interested in checking out their music, which I highly recommend, you can do so here.
Happy Thursday, and as always, thanks for reading! xo
