|Music is very much alive!|
They say that music defines who we are. Well if that is the case, I'm a full spectrum of sound. I love my country music, but I also reach out to rock, metal, blues, jazz, bluegrass, Appalachian, and all kinds of creativity. Maybe that is why I am such a music nut. I never adapt to one style, just a blend of music. I joked about attending two concerts one weekend - one night was Limp Bizkit, Wu-tang Clan, and DMX and the next night was Ralph Stanley. That was back in my college years. These days, I have such a wide variety of music in my collection.
One thing I have learned over the years is that you have to step out of your comfort zone in life. For me, that is staying in tune with various styles of music. I love going to Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour shows in Lexington, Kentucky, as there is such a blend of beautiful music.
Diversity. That is what defies my music collection. I appreciate a good song, a good lyric, production, the overall feeling that someone poured in their heart and soul into a piece of work. Scratch that - make that a piece of art. Music is indeed a rare form of art that many try to achieve, but very few create timeless classics.
What are you listening to? Who is defining your musical soul?
