Melody Sounds Like A Memory

Eric Church talks about it in ‘Springsteen’ and Clint Black in ‘State of Mind’ sometimes listening to a certain song can bring back memories. So I will share a few of musical memories. I would love love to hear what songs bring back memories to you.

Friends In Low Places – Garth Brooks

This is my favourite country song and I am a huge Garth fan. I was so excited to see him play in live in Nashville. When this song came on and EVERYONE sang along it was amazing.. I may have shed a tear of happiness! I cannot listen to this without thinking of that special night

Chicken Fried – Zac Brown Band

Zac Brown Band is a family favourite and most of their early music reminds me of my family singing along. But Chicken Fried, reminds me of family holidays in the southern states of America, driving along and singing along very loudly in the car

Country Girl (Shake it For Me)  – Luke Bryan

It was a hot night in Nashville and my Luke Bryan took the stage at CMA Fest in Nashville and it got a lot hotter!! My friend Jenny and I, both  (in our 40s) transformed into giggling teenagers….. and had huge smiles on our faces.

Tennessee Whisky – Chris Stapleton and Justin Timberlake

Watching this live at the CMA Awards was breathtaking, it felt so special. But my memory was hearing the sound check of this song for the awards with Amy Westney. We just knew it was going to be special, but no idea how special.

White Lightening – The Cadillac Three

These guys are one of my favourite live acts. Listening to this takes me back to a cold London night and watching them at the Garage. They recorded the live version of this at that gig.

Leave The Night On – Sam Hunt

This song reminds me of my teenage daughter, Georgia, singing along to it on our summer holidays.

When You Say Nothing At All – Alison Krauss

Back in the early 90s my husband and I took a year out to travel. Part of that travel was driving around Australia in an old Toyota Hiace, we only had one tape…. and this song was on it!

Cruise – Florida Georgia Line

As soon as I hear this song I am transported to Las Vegas and to the music festival Route 91 Harvest drunk dancing and singing very loudly and badly with David England.

Hi, I’m Annette, I have been a huge country music fan since the early 90s those were the days we were lucky enough to have CMT in the UK. I enjoy nothing more than listening to country music whilst having a cold beer (or a moonshine) with friends. I try to as many gigs as I can here in the UK and in the USA; I think of Nashville as my second home and I am lucky to have made some amazing friends in Tennessee. Think Country is something I am very proud of, I just want to share my love and passion of all things country music related with you all.
