Country Music Is Many Different Things
We’ve been asking country music experts from around the country, “what is country music?’ all month long to celebrate Country Music Month. This installment is from Lisa Dent. Lisa is on-air in Chicago these days, but she’s been pumping country music through the people’s speakers in most every city in America for years. She’s won Major Market Personality of the Year and a slew of other awards. Here now, is Lisa’s answer.
What Country music is to me?
It’s a [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kenny Chesney[/lastfm] show on a Saturday night in July, when you’re dancing with 30 thousand people!
It’s getting on the back of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Dierks Bentley[/lastfm]’s Harley to raise money for sick kids.
It’s crying the first time you hear [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Justin Moore[/lastfm]’s “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away”
It’s sharing the music you love with your kids and not worrying about the lyrics.
It’s being a part of a family, whose only connection is through our love of country music.
