A friend of ours recently told us he only listens to one CD in his truck. Jimmy Buffett. He doesn't listen to the radio or any other CDs. Only one.
I like Jimmy Buffett. I like country and Christian music, too. I often listen to KLOVE and Air1 on my way to work.
Country music tackles many issues. Cheating, loving, fighting, cancer, Jesus, are some of the themes of country songs. I can usually understand the words sung and can tap my toe to the tune. It's all good.
A few years ago, I began to listen to Harry Connick, Jr. After I collected most of his albums, I discovered Michael Buble.
I bought his Christmas CD and loved it. Then I bought one regular CD. I about wore it out. I listened to it almost daily along with my country and Harry Connick, Jr. music.
For my birthday, my family gave me four more Michael Buble CDs. They make me so happy to listen to them. I even find myself smiling during some of the songs.
And, joy, he's got a new album coming out this spring. I can't wait.
What about you? Do you have a favorite musician or song?
