We take country music seriously in the south. Mostly because when you’re in the car it’s the only music on the radio with actual lyrics… I have a new commute and drive an hour both ways so country music is absolutely necessary for belting it out and embarrassing yourself in traffic.
Tonight is the CMA Awards! It’s actually the 50th year so it’s going to be awesome! I’ve been looking forward to it for weeks. So have the country music stars–they released this awesome mash-up a few weeks ago and I can’t get enough.
Plus my girl Carrie is hosting again so we get to play a drinking game–every time she changes outfits take a drink.
To help get you in the mood, here is a playlist of 50 of my favorite country songs for the 50th anniversary. It includes mostly nominees from this year with a few older songs sprinkled in. Enjoy!
Oh, and the CMA Awards are on tonight at 8/7c on ABC! You can tweet with me @helenguyyay.
Do you listen to country music? Which performances are you looking forward to the most?
