We listen to county music in our house. A lot. If Amber had her way, that would be all that we ever listen to (I sneak in some Pearl Jam, Jimmy Buffett, and random classic rock sometimes). Kaitlyn has pretty much grown up listening to country, and given her age, it makes sense that she tends to favor the new acts. She enjoys The Band Perry, Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Cole Swindell, and Chase Rice, and would listen to Florida Georgia Line non-stop if we let her. She even likes some George Strait on occasion.
Maybe it had something to do with my excitement about his new release back in November, or maybe Kaitlyn just felt bad for me and decided to give him a listen. Whatever the reason, Kaitlyn has finally come around. And it’s about darn time, too!
Over the past month or so, I have overheard her a few times singing along to whatever Garth song was being played on the radio at the time. She’ll knows the words to “The Thunder Rolls,” and most of “Friends In Low Places” (although she doesn’t know the words to the third verse. Yet.). She even shared my excitement this morning when we heard two Garth songs on two different stations over the course of about three minutes; it really doesn’t get much better than that. And just when I thought my day couldn’t get better, Kaitlyn asked if I would change out a few CDs in the car so we could listen to some Garth tomorrow morning.
I am beyond ecstatic that I have finally made Kaitlyn into even a small Garth fan.
