It’s time for a new Tuesday Tunes playlist. This time I’m focusing on country music (Country music fans, please raise your hands!)
It seems my music preferences go in phases and stages. Sometimes I’m dancing to pop music in my kitchen, and other times I’m chilling out on the couch with folk tunes. For the past few weeks, it’s been all about country for me. I think that’s because a few of my favorite artists have released a new track or albums, and they are so so good!
These past couple days I’ve been listening to Kacey Musgraves’ “Space Cowboy” on repeat. The week before, Brandi Carlile’s new album came out, so that spun on my record player every day. (While I listen to most music via Spotify on my phone or computer, some artists sound exceptionally good on vinyl. Brandi, is one of them.)
A couple more of my new favorites include “Tequila” by Dan + Shay and “Simply the Best” by Noah Reid. The latter is technically not an official single, but it was featured in one of my favorite shows, Schitt’s Creek, and now I can’t get enough of it. Growing up, my cousins and I made fun of country music, but after my teenage years, I grew to appreciate it. I think it’s the reason I also love folk-inspired music so much. It has the heart, story, and grit of country, but it can also feel very fresh, new, and energetic.
Another reason I’m excited right now is that I’ve purchased a few tickets for summer concerts including Sugarland (SO happy they are back), LeAnn Rimes, and The Avett Brothers. I may try to get to Pink’s concert, too. Are you hitting up any concerts this year?
Even if you’re not a country fan, I hope you’ll give this playlist a listen and let me know what you think. You can use the widget below or listen directly on Spotify by clicking here.
