I used to want to be cool

I love country music. So there. Not radio country, but Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, and Johnny Cash. Merle Haggard and Hank Williams and Emmylou, oh goodness. It's kick-ass work music, they have awesome voices, and they make fun of themselves and each other like family.

In high school, I claimed I didn't like country. It wasn't cool. I was totally full of shit. Country music will always mean cooking and washing dishes, driving out west, and my parents dancing in the kitchen. Of course it embarrassed me in high school. It's awesome.
