I fell in love with Country Music the night my best friend showed me “Garth Brooks Live in Central Park” on VHS. We danced our asses off in her Grandma’s living room until we were sweaty and breathless.
Tonight I watched all three hours of the CMAs.
I feel like the country artists are my close friends. I love how they look out for each other, celebrate each other and sing together. It feels warm and genuine. When they say how much they love their genre, I really believe it.
It feels like a community. And I feel grateful to be a part of it.
