Ladies Love a Country Man

Okay, this is one of those posts that no one else will be that interested in but me. But it is a cute story that I want to remember, so bear with me.

Tigerfan and I have listened to some country music in our day! I mean, I worked in a music store through H.S. AND we lived in Nashville. Back in the day, we knew a song or two. However, kids, life, etc. have changed that and now we listen to XM kids or Disney radio or Toby Mac...our music is all kid driven.

This Christmas, my SIL introduced F.B. to the world of country music when she began bluetoothing songs from her phone into his new phone he got for Christmas (that is a whole other post!)

Now, he walks around the house playing his 30 second increments of songs saying, "Momma, do you know who sings this?" Which, incidentally brings back horrible childhood memories of a game my little sister used to torture me with...but I won't go there!

Anyway, he has a new found love and appreciation for all things country music!

Yesterday, when we got into the car after tutorial, he asked me if I knew any country songs. I said that I knew LOTS of country songs (although truth be told, at that moment I couldn't think of a single one except "There's a Tear in my Beer" and I wasn't about to start THAT discussion) but that they were all older songs he probably wouldn't know and I wasn't really that familiar with today's country music. He then began playing with his phone. In a minute he said..."Hey mom, is (insert song name) by Rascal Flatts country music? I answered that it was.

His response, "Cool, can I call Froggy 104 and request they play it?"

It seems that on Tuesday, one of his friends put the number of the local country station in his contacts list on his phone and told him you could call in and request songs. They tried it out and he heard his own voice over the airwaves...and now...he is drunk with power! Where will this lead next?

LOL! That's so cute.

I was always too afraid to call in to the local radio station in case I said something stupid and they re-played it a dozen times to amuse people. I had some baggage back in the day ;)

We are country music fans around here, too.

That's a cute story! Hearing one's voice on the radio is pretty amusing! I'm sure he'll remember this story too in years to come!
