Sugarland is music to stir the soul

I cannot remember the last time I was moved by listening to 'new' music. Usually I just crank up the 'oldies,' the songs that hold special, even intimate memories for me. I love how music, especially songs from our 'prime,' conjures up thoughts and feelings in such a way to seemingly transport us back to another time.

Right now, I am listening to the latest object of my musical affection -- Sugarland. I am so impressed with Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush. I think they are a talent beyond words. Their music, unlike so many things today, is simply 'real.'

I have gone back and forth in my affection for Country Music, but the longer I live and the more I hear other genres, the more I realize my heart belongs to Country. Perhaps that has something to do with my rather new-found affection for living in the Country. I was born a City Mouse, but I consider that just a geographic mixup by my parents.
