In My Ears

I've been trying to broaden my musical horizons a bit lately..

Y'all know I love me some country music.  Old and new (although some people say that Country Music Died in 1985 - and what they are playing now just "ain't country"). For reals.

And even though, I am thoroughly enjoying the newest music (see my list below) country has to offer, I'm reaching out a bit, trying to get out of my "comfort zone" so to speak. I'm learning that I have quite a variety of favorites on my playlist lately. I mean, QUITE a variety.

Thanks to my family (two teenage boys and one teenage girl, as well as my Motown Lovin' Daddy) and a few friends, I've added several new tunes to my Apple Music library.  Well, not all of them are "new"... In fact, some are actually pretty old (lol), but they are new (or different) to me!

So without further ado, here's what's been in my ears most recently....
  • Ed Sheeran  - Divide (the whole stinkin' album)
  • Led Zeppelin - Rain Song
  • Frankie Valli and the Four Seasoos - Sherry
  • Lionel Richie - Easy
  • Fall Out Boy - Sugar We're Goin Down
  • Eddie Money - Shakin'
  • Pink Floyd - Learning To Fly
  • The Black Crowes - Hard to Handle
  • Soundgarden - The Day I Tried to Live (RIP Chris Cornell)
  • Elvis Presley - Can't Help Falling In Love With You
  • Shawn Mendez - Ain't Nothing Holdin' Me Back
  • John Mayer - Gravity

There's more, but I picked 12 to share, because that's about how many songs are included on albums these days.  Also, I've been playing the heck out of a few new country albums/artists, as well.  Here are my top 5:

So here's where you chime in.  Yes people. I want feedback!! (Feel free to comment below or on my Facebook feed where this is linked up.)  What songs/artists would you have me add to my "Horizons" list above?  Have you heard any of the newer country stuff that I have listed?  What do you think?? Heck! Feel free to weigh in on the state of Country Music, or just music in general.  Inquiring minds want to know!! 

Hope y'all have a great weekend!  Meanwhile I'll get back to listenin'.
