I love country music! But to be honest, I had to "convert" to it, if you will. I used to "hate" country music (or what I thought it was, at least)... I was all like "all country music is just a bunch of twangy sad songs about your wife leaving, and your dead dog, and your pick-up truck that doesn't run anymore..." (Think the lyrics to the song "Backwards" by Rascal Flatts if you know it, and that was pretty much my view on country music). My older sister used to be the same way, but one of her friends got her into country. And since my sister is 4 years older than me, there was a large chunk of time where she could drive, and I couldn't. So she would drive me all over the place and force me to listen to country music in the car, promising me that I would like it, and I thought she was crazy and wrong. Well, it turns out *I* was the wrong one, because now I love it! I really have very diverse taste in music, and I listen to pretty much everything... but I'm so glad that I can include country on that list!
I love Carrie Underwood, I think she's so amazing and classy and has such a great voice. I also love: Martina McBride, Sugarland, Toby Keith, Kenny Chesney, George Strait, George Jones, Tim McGraw, Rascal Flatts (though I agree with a few people that the lead singer's voice can get a tad annoying, and sometimes sounds sort of like he's a girl, and sort of like he's singing with his fingers pinching his nose closed...) Rodney Atkins, Johnny Cash, Sara Evans... and a bunch of others that I can't even think of right now. But I think my favorite country singer would have to be Brad Paisley. I love him! I've seen him live 3 times and his concerts are so much fun. I love how he has awesome and hilarious songs (like "Alcohol", and "I'm Still a Guy") but how he can also write songs so sweet that I want to have them played at my wedding reception, (like "She's Everything," and "Little Moments").
Anyways, I'm quite glad to know that I'm not alone in being both a Twilight fan, *and* a fan of country!
