Country roads and a love for country music

By Colleen Drew |

Many individuals are embarrassed to tell people that they listen to country music; I used to be one of them. Being from New York it wasn’t the coolest thing to listen to or a great way to make friends. As soon as you tell people, they assume it is hillbilly country and you are a redneck.

At home there was one country station and it was aired out of Connecticut; obviously country isn’t too popular by me. When I was with my friends we would always listen to the popular radio stations, which played rap and pop music. When listening, I couldn’t understand what the rappers were saying and even if it did come out clear I didn’t know what half of it meant.
