Have I ever menitioned that I LOVE George Strait? Yeah, I do. A lot. And I LOVE my husband even more. He took me to see George’s farewell show in Salt Lake City for our anniversary. What a guy. 🙂 Four videos we took at the concert are below.

George Strait opened his 2013 Salt Lake City concert with Here for a Good Time, then followed it with Ocean Front Property. Good, good stuff. Part of the Cowboy Rides Away tour.

I like country music. There, I said it. Harry Potter and country music. I’m SO not hip. That’s ok. I like me anyway. However, I do not like the country music you hear on the radio. In fact, I have no use for FM radio, CMT, the CMA or GAC. (If you don’t know what any of those are, you’re missing nothing.) I think I got off the current bandwagon some time in the late 80’s. There are only three big time artists I still love (George Strait, Brad Paisley and Alan Jackson, for the record). That means I listen to a lot of old music, which is usually okay but I’m always excited about finding a new artist with a sound I love. Corporate Country Sucks was recently brought to my attention. It’s a cool little place to see what’s going on under the radar in the country music world and if you have a few bucks to spare you can send them a couple to help support REAL country music. Viva Independence!
