Stereotype City, USA

nashville.jpgNashville and country music is getting Farked today, but, Shania Twain pictures keep interrupting the discussion.

Nashville should be proud of it’s country music roots, a lot of great things happen here. You don’t have to like country music to appreciate the history and the talented musicians and writers. But, it does get old when people assume the city is nothing but it’s musical heritage or that we don’t wear shoes. I most certainly wear shoes. As a matter of fact, just put them back on to write this. And, no, they weren’t cowboy boots. Mine don’t fit me anymore, besides, they take the attention away from my very large Western hat.

When I was a freshman in college, my roommate from Connecticut was unpacking at the beginning of the year, and, she had what seemed like a year’s supply of soap, shampoo, toothpaste etc. When I asked her why she bought so much of that kind of stuff at one time, she told me that she wasn’t sure we had stores down here. I really think she may have thought Hee Haw (which I love) was the prototype reality show.

    Ha ha Friday I went to boot country to try on boots. I’ve been here 3 years and I don’t have a pair. I left the store without buying anything…

    Don’t worry Mary. I’ve been here 28 years and I’ve never own any boots. I just walk around barefoot all the time.
