my continuing countrification

For a limited time, Amazon is offering a free mp3 download of a song by a CMA nominee. The promotion runs through November 22, and there are hundreds of songs to choose from. I know. I spent far too long previewing songs last night! Of course, it helped that I knew that I should be writing, thus making listening to 30-second clips of songs I'd never heard of before that much more appealing!

When I saw the offer, my first thought was that I should get "that song about the guy who cheats and gets hit by a bus." I soon learned that it's "Best Days of Your Life" by Kellie Pickler, and as Ms. Pickler was evidently not nominated for a CMA award, her songs were ineligible.

After much listening (with only a small bit of writing intermixed), I narrowed it down to "Waiting on a Woman" by Brad Paisley, "Start a Band" by Brad Paisley & Keith Urban, and "I Told You So" by Carrie Underwood & Randy Travis. I finally decided to wait ... and after having "I Told You So" run through my head all day, I just downloaded it.

Here's the thing: All three of my "top" songs are country country. And I love 'em! What's happened to me???

Get your claim code and free song here!


  1. Must be all the strain from trying to write a novel in a month. Maybe your taking after Grandpa Ritta, cause he used to listen to KRVN on the radio when stacking hay back in the good old days. They only played country then.


  2. Totally! What happened to you?!? :) I love it though. You know you're listening to the best of country music...Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, etc. It doesn't get much better than that. Carrie Underwood is good, but even I think "I told you so" is too country (though, that may be because I know the original).
