A little bit country... a little bit pop and roll

Dear Friends,

I have some big news for you all, and I'm really not quite sure how to go about telling you. To most of you it will be very surprising; some of you will be a little disappointed, I'm sure; some of you may even feel the need to re-think your friendship with me. Despite all of this, I feel it's my duty to keep you all fully informed.

It's regarding my recent itunes purchases, a subject which I'm sure you will come to realise, if you haven't already, I take very serously.

I'm just going to come right out and say it: I bought country music.

There. That wasn't so bad was it?

Are you reeling? I know I was... in fact, I'm still coming to terms with it. How did I suddenly start liking a genre that, until recently, made me feel like slitting my wrists? And people... I didn't just buy ONE song... i bought THREE. Keith Urban (he needs a haircut) and the Dixie Chicks. It is really the Dixie chicks ones I love though. There is something about any song that includes the lyrics "i'm still mad as hell," that just appeals to me.

This song was the first one... and I'm a little concerned that it may have opened the floodgates. Where to now? Do i try to go back to the place I was in before? That comfortable rock/pop/rnb land of happiness? Or do I explore this new and inexplicable discovery?

As I'm sure you can tell, i'm a confused woman. However, I'm sure that with the help and support of my family and friends I'll emerge from this difficult and uncertain time a better and stronger person, but possibly wearing cowboy boots.

Dearest mc...Tammy

It is with great regret that I must, henceforth and for as long as traces of such evil music reside within your music collection, cut all ties between us. As you know, I have a rep to uphold. There are people out there just waiting for an excuse to strip me of my street cred, even if it is only by association. I mean, Dixie chicks!?!? What were you thinking?!? You might as well pre-programme Vega into my car radio and let me take the crew joy riding.

Farewell partner

Might I suggest buying the other Dixie Chicks albums!

Next would be to go buy a DVD of the Chicks' documentary, Shut up and Sing.

Then, you MUST see them live in concert the next time they tour. They are truly amazing!

I hardly believe you will be dissapointed with any of those suggestions.

IF you only take ONE of those suggestions to heart, please make it a point to see the movie!
