We are going to let the website introduce themselves.  “Welcome to the My Kind Of Country blog. Here, you will find reviews, editorials, and discussions about the country music we love : our kind of country. The idea is simple: rather than write lots of negative reviews about the new music that’s coming out – because let’s face it, much of what comes out of Nashville and your country radio dial is crap – we are going to write about the music we love: the music that moves us, drives us, and makes us laugh and cry; the music that touches us."
