Story Time #MewsicMovesMe

The theme of this week's Mewsic Moves Me blog hop is "songs that tell a story."


Conway often described country songs as little 3 minute soap operas, so there's no better genre of music for story songs. This week's picks are a bit more contemporary than we usually choose, but we think we found some great ones.









We hope you enjoyed our choices this week!

Let us know if you have a favorite!

You picked some great ones, Melissa! (I’m an Alan Jackson fan.) I love the picture, with Mudpie in the book, too.

Very nice. Country is all about story telling.

I was wondering if anyone was going to use "Fancy." Reba's is excellent, but Bobbie Gentry's is my favorite (she wrote the song, after all). Good set!

That Alan Jackson song is so good! But I love Carrie Underwood too. Yeah I think Conway was right about c/w songs!

I have never heard the Conway quote about country songs being 3-minute soap operas, but that is so true. And the songs you picked are perfect examples of that. Purrs!
