Aside from the Dixie Chicks, I’ve never listened to much country — except when I’m on a road trip. Then I blast it, cracking up at the clever turns of phrase in so many of the lyrics and getting teary-eyed at the ones about ‘merica. I just pretend I’m driving a vintage Chevrolete pickup, like the one Hayden Panettiere’s character has in the ABC show “Nashville.”
Guys, are you watching this? We started because Tami Taylor from the amazing “Friday Night Lights” series stars in it, and it’s on after I got home from class on Wednesday nights and need to just blob out for a bit.
I’m typically more of a PBS/NBC kinda girl when I watch TV, but I’ll admit that this show has become a guilty pleasure. The songwriting in it is alternately pretty chatchy/soulful, too.
