Blown Away

Peg Breen: March 01, 201392 Comments

Do you like country music?   I do.  I’m sure at some point on my drives down  Hwy 168  you could spot me doing an embarrassing imitation of Taylor Swift, singing “I knew you were trouble when you walked in,” or singing along to Sugarland’s “Stuck Like Glue,” or Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now.”    I had never really listened to Carrie Underwood and have tickets to attend the March 5 concert at the Save Mart Center, so I decided to sample her music last Saturday.   I brewed a cup of vanilla decaf, sat on my couch with Sammy, pulled up YouTube and was, you guessed it - blown away. 

"Two Black Cadillac’s," tells the story of a wife and mistress meeting up at the husband’s funeral.  "Before He Cheats” tells young men to be loyal or risk having their sooped up 4-wheel drive keyed (a reminder I sent to my son.)  Just before I decided that all Carrie’s songs were about murder or property destruction, I came across “Jesus Take the Wheel”, a ballad that reminds us that when we think we can’t take “it” any more, whatever our “it” is, we need to give our concerns over to a higher power.

 If you are a Community employee and you’d like to hear these and many more Carrie Underwood songs in person, enter your name and a friend’s in a drawing to join me for dinner and the show on the evening of Tuesday March 5!  All you need to do is reply to this blog in one of two ways:  

 

1) Write in your favorite country song lyric. (This should be fun to see!)

2) Reply with the words –Take Me to See Carrie! 

Remember to include your name so we contact you to deliver your ticket.  P.S.  You pick the restaurant!
 DEADLINE to submit your comment is 4 p.m. Monday, March 4....We'll contact you early Tuesday morning and announce the winner on Forum.

TAKE ME TO SEE CARRIE!!!! PRETTY PLEASE!

Folks are always dreaming about what they like to do
But I like to do just what I like
I'll take the chance dance the dance
It might be wrong but then again it might be right
There's no way of knowing what tomorrow brings
Life is too short to waste it I say bring on anything-

I'm gonna live where the green grass grows

Where the green grass grows..... Tim McGraw, "Where the Green Grass Grows"- Shana x4220

Take me to see Carrie!

"I dug my keys into the side of his pretty little souped up four wheel drive, carved my name into his leather seats, took a Louisville slugger to both headlights...maybe next time he will think before he cheats."

TAKE ME TO SEE CARRIE! BLOWN AWAY!

My all time favorite country song is the song played at my wedding Keeper of the Stars by Tracy Byrd
It was no accident me finding you
Someone had a hand in it Long before we ever knew
Now I just can't believe you're in my life
Heaven's smilin' down on me As I look at you tonight
I tip my hat to the keeper of the stars
He sure knew what he was doin' When he joined these two hearts
I hold everything When I hold you in my arms
I've got all I'll ever need Thanks to the keeper of the stars
SO PLEASE TAKE ME TO SEE CARRIE! sHE IS ONE OF MY CURRENT FAVORITES! KAREN MURPHY CBHC 449-4453

This American Girl wants to see CARRIE!!!!!

"All-American Girl"
Since the day they got married
He'd been praying for a little baby boy
Someone he could take fishing
Throw the football, be his pride and joy
He could already see him holding that trophy
Taking his team to state
But when the nurse came in with a little pink blanket
All those big dreams changed
And now, he's wrapped around her finger
She's the center of his whole world
And his heart belongs to that sweet, little, beautiful, wonderful, perfect
All American girl
Sixteen short years later
She was falling for the senior football star
Before you knew it he was dropping passes
Skipping practice just to spend more time with her
The coach said, hey son what's your problem
Tell me have you lost your mind
Daddy said you'll lose your free ride to college
Boy, you better tell her goodbye
But now, he's wrapped around her finger
She's the center of his whole world
And his heart belongs to that sweet, little, beautiful, wonderful, perfect
All American
And when they got married and decided to have one of their own
She said, be honest, tell me what you want
And he said, honey you outta know
A sweet, little, beautiful one just like you
I want a beautiful, wonderful, perfect All American Girl
Now, he's wrapped around her finger
She's the center of his whole world
And his heart belongs to that sweet, little, beautiful, wonderful, perfect
All American girl

Take Us to See Carrie-Mother Daughter Date

Dear Peg,
Over the past year my daughter who is 17 and I have had some difficult times. Slowly but surly we are working on mending our relationship. The other day she called me and told me to listen to this song.
Mama's Song
Mama, you taught me to do the right things. So, now you have to let your baby fly. You've given me everything that I will need to make it through this crazy thing called life. And I know you watched me grow up and only wnat what's best for me.
Mama there's no way you'll ever lose me. As you watch me walk into my future, I hope tears of joy are in your eyes. Mama don't your worry about me, don't you worry about me.
This song hit home as I listened and cried knowing that no matter what, my daughter will always be ok.
She is my daughter and now to my friend.
 
Sincerely, Maaika Albertsen-Clovis OR Ext:44046

TAKE ME TO SEE CARRIE!

"'Cause its the first long kiss on a second date.
Mommas all worried when you get home late
And droppin' the ring in the spaghetti plate
'Cause you're hands are shakin' so much
And its the way that she looks with her eyes and her hair.
Eatin' burnt suppers the whole first year and askin' for seconds to keep her from tearin' up
Yeah man that's the good stuff."
My favorite song lyrics are from Kenny Chesney - "The Good Stuff"
And I'd like to take Larry with me to the concert :)

Take me to see Carrie ----Maria 63612

She was driving last Friday on her way to Cincinnati
On a snow white Christmas Eve
Going home to see her Mama and her Daddy with the baby in the backseat
Fifty miles to go and she was running low on faith and gasoline
It would been a long hard year
She had a lot on her mind and she didn't pay attention
She was going way to fast
Before she knew it she was spinning on a thin black sheet of glass
She saw both their lives flash before her eyes
She didn't even have time to cry
She was sooo scared
She threw her hands up in the air
Jesus take the wheel
Take it from my hands
Cause I can't do this all on my own I
'm letting go
So give me one more chance
To save me from this road I'm on
Jesus take the wheel T
he lyrics say it all love to see Carrie perform it in person. Maria 63612


Country music for regular people

In this age of divorced couples and and people finding each other later in life nobody talks about second chances better than Clay Walker in "I'd love to be your last". I know I've found my last and this song just makes me feel good.

If I had it my way.
This would be the first time that you made love.
I'd be the first man that your hands touched.
But we'd both done our share of living.
Takin chances we were given.

I've never been big on looking back
I don't care if I'm your first love.
But I'd love to be your last.
If I could do it over.
I'd have waited for this moment
to give my heart to you unbroken.
But if our mistakes brought us together.
Doesn't really matter whether, we were saints or sinners in the past
I don't care if I'm your first love. I'd just love to be your last.


Take Me to See Carrie!!!

Lyrics from my all time favorite song Amarillo By Morning by George Strait..

I ain't got a dime, but what I got is mine.
I ain't rich but Lord I'm free!

I LOVE KENNY CHESNEY!!!!!!!

TAKE ME TO GO SEE KENNY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I turn the TV off, to turn it on again
Staring at the blades of the fan as it spins around
Counting every crack, the clock is wide awake
Talking to myself, anything to make a sound

I told you I wouldn’t call, I told you I wouldn’t care
But baby climbing the walls gets me nowhere
I don’t think that I can take this bed getting any colder
Come over, come over, come over, come over, come over

You can say we’re done the way you always do
It’s easier to lie to me than to yourself
Forget about your friends, you know they’re gonna say
We’re bad for each other, but we ain’t good for anyone else

I told you I wouldn’t call, I told you I wouldn’t care
But baby climbing the walls gets me nowhere
I don’t think that I can take this bed getting any colder
Come over, come over, come over, come over, come over

We don’t have to miss each other, come over
We don’t have to fix each other, come over
We don’t have to say forever, come over
You don’t have to stay forever, come over

I told you I wouldn’t call, I told you I wouldn’t care
But baby climbing the walls gets me nowhere
I don’t think that I can take this bed getting any colder
Come over, come over, come over, come over, come over

Come over, come over, come over, come over, come over.
Come over, come over, come over, come over, come over.

"Whenever You Remember" by Carrie Underwood

Whenever You Remember
When you look back on times we had, I hope you smile
And know that through the good and through the bad
