To celebrate Country Music Month, we’ve asked some experts across the country, what is country music? This installment is from Trish Biondo. Trish has been on the air in Chicago for over 25 years and has been nominated for Major Market Personality of the Year by the Academy of Country Music.
Country music to me is a friend for life. Ever since I can remember, country music has kept me company, connected with me, cried with me and inspired me. The songs speak to my heart. They remind me “We’re Here For A Good Time.” They inspire me “Live Like You Were Dying.”

They help me to understand this crazy world “Where Were You When The World Stopped Turning” and remind me why we enjoy the freedoms that we have “American Soldier.” They speak to children “I Hope You Dance” and speak to parents “You’re Gonna Miss This.” They speak to teens “Fifteen” and they speak to adults “Don’t Blink.”

They help me get through crazy traffic “Take A Back Road” and get though the day “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere.” They remind me that other people go through hard times too “I’m Gonna Love You Through It” and “Cost of Living.” They help you get rid of the old relationships “Baggage Claim” and welcome the new “God Gave Me You.” They speak to the craziness of daily life “I’m In A Hurry” and “Mr. Mom” and remind me how lucky we are to be here “It’s A Great Day to be Alive” and “Just Another Day in Paradise.

Listeners are constantly telling me how much a song means to them and I understand because those songs mean just as much to me.
