Day 13 – Your favorite musician and why?

YEAH! I love music and was excited for today's challenge!!! :) But I had a hard time picking one. Mainly because I like different kinds of music, so I picked two.

I'll start with the obvious....Vanessa Carlton! I still remember the first time I heard her. I was with my dear friend Diana and we were driving in a bad storm. She had been telling me that I need to hear her song, "A Thousand Miles" and that I would love it. All of the sudden, it came on! And she was right I totally feel in love!

My obsession, as some call it, just grew from there. I got her CD and learned as much as I could about her. The more I learned the more I admired her. Not only do I love her voice, but learned she wrote all her own songs. And to top things off, she plays the piano while she sings! From there, I also learned that she is a ballet dancer and loves dogs! She just released her 4th CD, which she did all her own. She again wrote it all and cut it all. She went old school and didn't record digitally. She also didn't it without a record company.

The other I just love is Brad Paisley! And who wouldn't! Isn't he so cute! But about talent. His songs are always so cleverly written and he is quite the guitar player. I love listening to his lyrics. Here are just a few....

You had some of the best times
You'll never remember with me
Alcohol, alcohol


You can blend in in the country
You can stand out in the fashion world
Be invisible to a whitetail
Irresistible to a redneck girl
Camouflage, camouflage
Oh, you're my favorite color, camouflage


Someday I'm gonna be famous, do I have talent, well no
These days you don't really need it thanks to reality shows


When she's layin' on my shoulder on the sofa in the dark
And about the time she falls asleep so does my right arm
And I want so bad to move it 'cause it's tinglin' and it's numb
But she looks so much like an angel that I don't wanna wake her up
Yeah I live for little moments
