country music

I have totally been into country lately. Not just any country mind you...1990's country. Really the time period between 1990-1992. I have a good reason, that is the only time period I listened to country. I didn't have a choice. I lived in two different towns in North Dakota, the smallest having a population of 24 (yes you read that right, 24) and the biggest having a population of like maybe 1500.

And in such small towns, they don't get good rock station reception. When I moved to Dallas at the end of 1992 I listened to 106.1 and a whole new world of music opened up to me. I have to say that I'm a little partial to punk, techno, ska and rockabilly. But back in 1992 my favorite singer was Mark Chesnutt. I love his voice. I also liked Garth Brooks, who didn't?

So here is my playlist for right now....

Fishin in the Dark - Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
Meet in the Middle - Diamond Rio
The Race is On - Sawyer Brown
I'll Think of Something - Mark Chesnutt
Shameless - Garth Brooks
Friends in Low Places - Garth Brooks
The Dance - Garth Brooks
She's in Love with the Boy - Trisha Yearwood
Chattahoochie - Alan Jackson
Dumas Walker - Kentucky Headhunters
Bubba Shot the Jukebox - Mark Chesnutt

Now I left off songs like Achy Breaky Heart. Don't get me wrong, I did love the song back in the day, but that wore off about 5 minutes after it came out.
