Friends reading this will laugh but I miss country music. Living in Europe I don’t hear it much other than on my iPod. I’ve been a fan since I was young, brought up listening to my dad’s old school country music.

Why do I like it so much? I think its the storytelling. And I was reminded of that tonight.

Last night was the 44th Academy of Country Music Awards and while I couldn’t watch, I was just checking out the winners online. Lots of the same old players so obviously I’m not missing too much. :)

One of last night’s winners was Brad Paisley for his duet with Keith Urban (you may know Brad as he’s married to Kimberly Williams, Keith is married to Nicole Kidman). They won ‘Vocal Event of the Year’ Award for “Start A Band.” I like both artists so clicked through to check it out.

Start a Band - Brad Paisley & Keith Urban

The lyrics go like this…”When you’re livin’ in a world that you don’t understand, find a few buddies and start a band.”

What a great message! As we’re all facing tough & uncertain times right now, we can take inspiration from this… why not go for it and do something YOU always wanted to do!
