Hil's Summer Music :: Country Style

I love music in the summertime.  I always laugh at people who have their windows down and share their music with the whole world as they drive.  However, I do enjoy driving with the windows down and my music up every now and then.

There's just something special that happens to music in the summertime.  I have therefore decided to create a Summer Music Series where I will be putting together fun mixes to enjoy throughout the summer.

To start out, I wanted to do a country mix.  Country isn't everyone's favorite, I realize this.  In fact, Jon, if you are reading this please feel free to just skip this post as I do not want to trigger any gag reflexes.  But in my defense, country music is the heart and soul of this country and with the 4th of July coming up, I thought it was only fitting.  I have liked country music when liking country music was cool and when it wasn't.  I suppose I can get away with it since I live in a somewhat rural part of the country where State Fairs are still the highlight of the summer.
