Kuntry Livin’ Playlist

kuntryThe human mind is a wonderful thing. It starts working from before you’re born and doesn’t stop till you sit down to write a song. —Roger Miller

Here’s the second installment of an endless project—creating thematic playlists. This collection deals with relationships, angst…and maybe a dog, jail cell and/or a truck or two. While many are classics, new artists are revisiting these themes and having fun with them. All have a harmony line to sing so join Patsy Cline and go Crazy.

Click the play button (below) to listen to the entire collection from the beginning. You may also click “Show Playlist” and select a tune from within the collection. Subsequent songs will play from there on.
