I am being a real nerd today. Seriously. Since the year is almost over, I am just sitting around reminiscing about all that has gone on in 2011 and the years before. I got to thinking about my wedding, my family, our house we finally moved into this year. Everything has happened so quickly and we are just so blessed to be able to live where we are and have all that we need and more.
Living out in the country is certainly not for everyone, but it is definitely for us. I can’t tell you how depressed we would be if we had a neighbor right on top of us. And our neighbors would probably get just as upset about us shooting guns and having bonfires, so it’s just as well that we are out here anyway.
While I was thinking about all of this, I realized that there are a lot of songs out there about country living. Now, whether or not these people have actually lived in the country or still do, I don’t know, but I do know that I love these songs.
So go with me down memory lane, won’t you?
Tim McGraw’s “Where the Green Grass Grows” makes me even happier that I live where I do.
“Back Where I Come From” by Kenny Chesney is pretty accurate in describing my hometown. I love that.
Montgomery Gentry singing “My Town” is another one of my favorites.
