Sometimes I get in these moods where the only thing I want to listen to is the soundtrack of my childhood.
For me, that soundtrack consisted of Martina McBride, George Strait, Tim McGraw, Reba McEntire, and the likes. Hearing their voices immediately takes me back to riding shotgun in the little blue Nova, 98.7 WMZQ playing on the radio on the way to school.
Today I left the house and went to the Starbucks drive-thru. Our fridge recently died so we are out of most things, including coffee. I know we’re in quarantine and I’m doing my best to stay home, I certainly don’t make it a habit. But today, I loaded the pup in the car, rolled down the windows, and sang along with Brooks & Dunn.
With The Dixie Chicks gearing up to release their first album in 14 years (go listen to their single, Gaslighter), I felt like this would be the perfect time to share my 90s country playlist. I have a longer version with almost 150 songs, but for you guys, I had to pare it down to the favorites and the ones that really spoke to me as a kid. It’s still a bit long as far as Mix Tapes go…but I couldn’t make any more cuts.
Fun Fact: Kenny Chesney was the very first concert I attended. I was 7-years-old and I went with my dad because for whatever reason it was free.
Who’s on your childhood soundtrack?
