Monday when Addie and I were going to Joplin, the radio was on in the car and Shania Twain’s song “Feel Like a Woman” was on and Addie knew every word of it. I was thinking . . how much radio does she listen to and then I remembered that kids that age remember everything! They don’t even have a radio in the house. My car radio is on the local country station and I wasn’t even paying attention to what was on yesterday coming home from school til I noticed Addie singing every word . . like really getting into it. The song is “Drunk Girl“. Hmm . . I’m not sure what to think. No need to be the crazy old granny and interfere. The song is on the mainstream country music radio and, I can see how there’s some redeeming words in there but still . . not a song for a 6 year old. Then I remembered that when Chad was a bit younger than Addie when he knew every word to Achy Breaky Heart and danced quite a jig when he sang it.
Last night I told her I had a song to play for her and played Pat Green’s Girls from Texas. I told her to tell me when she knew what it was and it just took a second before she smiled and started singing.
Then I played Perfect by Ed Sheeran with Andrea Bocceli. She told me Nicole’s sister has that one in her car and then she wanted to hear it again.
Maybe there’s hope for her taste in music. I was going to say “maybe Granny needs to be here more” but it was on my car radio where she heard Drunk Girl but it definitely was not the first time she heard it but it was my first time to hear it!
