Country Music and all it’s glory…

For those of you that don’t know, I LOVE country music. Now, living in Chicago (in or about or near…however you choose to define my current abode) makes it a little difficult to get a decent fill of that good ol’ country music, since there is only one country station. Nevertheless, I try and get my fill by substituting radio stations for the fact that I can still view CMT. CMT, home to classics like: DCC (Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team 4) and the top 20 countdown.

The top 20 countdown is really my saving grace when it comes to filling me in on the newest hits. Which brings me to my point…I am LOVING Darius Rucker. Now I will be the very first to admit that I HATED/HATE Hootie and the Blowfish. There was just something about the sound that I was not vibing on. But when it comes to Darius (yes, we are in fact on a first name basis), I can’t get enough. So much so that I bought the album on iTunes…didn’t even illegally download it. Now that’s saying something…

why I love iTunes

So despite being halfway around the world (although soon to be only a 9 hour time difference with CST), I am trying to stay connected with what is going on in the world, as well as music and shows, etc. This is why I love iTunes. I have been able to keep up with Season 5 of the office (yes Erin, I still love it and find it hysterical. Tell Joey for me!). But I have also started watching Mad Men, Lost, the Tudors (granted not all on iTunes, some on just regular DVDs). And I love some of the podcasts (when I can download them, which isn’t often since the internet in my apt is so slow).

But in case anyone is curious about what I am listening to:
A Hundred Million Suns Album by Snow Patrol (Lizzie – you’d LOVE it)
808s & Heartbreak by Kayne
Year of the Gentleman by Ne-Yo
Plus trying to keep up with all the new “popular” songs…

Although side note: It’s hard to believe that a year ago I was in Mexico watching Pam rock out to “Get Low”…Happy Green Beer Day everyone
