Believe it or not, I do listen to other music in my day-to-day life. Growing up, I always found a few questions hard to answer: What's your favorite food? What's your favorite movie? What's your favorite band or artist? I never have really had a true favorite. It always bugged me growing up. What notes a favorite? I always defined it as whether or not I would get a tattoo of them. I have a friend of mine that is a die-hard 311 fan. The man has the tattoos of the band to prove it. Would I really want a Randy Travis tattoo on me? Probably not.

It's not a secret that I am a huge fan of '90s country music. Being a DJ and coming from a musical family, I was exposed to a ton of genres and artists growing up. Dad was a Chicago, Larry Gatlin, and Toto kinda guy. Mom was a Carpenters kinda gal. I would listen to it all growing up. I really think this is the reason I cannot, and will never, truly pick an absolute favorite artist.

I figured I would share the vast array of the artists I do enjoy listening to, depending on my mood, of course. I am not saying these are the greatest of all time, but you can't deny that during their heyday, they were the best.
