Happy 4th of July! I seem to have a tendency to make new blog entries on holidays lol (the last one was on Father’s Day). Today, my Independence Day is not as exciting or action-packed as past years in my life, as I have not done much at all – that’s why I’m making a new entry now and also, I owed it to you all haha. Today’s recommendation is not related to today or have any theme like that: it’s just a song I’ve been wanting to do for quite some time and from an artist who puts out some of the best music out there, so it was tough to choose one song from them to do.
My thirteenth recommendation is: Lee Ann Womack’s “I Know Why the River Runs” from her 2000 I Hope You Dance album. This is the country album that got me back into country music years ago. I’ve really got to thank my sister mostly, because she bought this CD for my mother (my mom loved the title track), and we used to listen to it all the time in our old vehicle. That was like the only CD we really listened to haha…and none of our road trips would be complete without hearing some of the songs from this album and especially “I Know Why the River Runs”. Anyway, people need to realize that this album is much more than the hugely-ginormously popular title track, “I Hope You Dance” (which is my favorite Lee Ann Womack song of all time) and I’d definitely recommend people and fans check out her other music. This album has so many styles of country music on it mixed together: traditional, honky-tonk, bluegrass, contemporary pop-country, and I think the other songs are majorly overlooked by people who love the title song.
