Meaningful music is so important.
The reason I hate modern, top 40, pop music is because I find it dull and lifeless. I’m sick and tired of hearing about how many shots a rapper took last night, or how Ariana Grande still sounds like she’s 12 (sorry). I cannot stand the radio, and I’m still convinced Spotify is one of the greatest inventions of the 21st century.
As you know, I love country music. Like, I really LOVE country music. There’s something about it that makes it feel so home-y. Is that a phrase?
I think my appreciation for country music goes back to my guitar roots, because I’ve found I have a new found appreciation for basic lyrics and songs. Country songs are more complex than top forty dubstep because they use complicated cords, strumming methods, scales, and patterns. It’s much harder to play a Darius Rucker song than a Chainsmokers song. I’m sorry, but we all know that’s a fact.
Whenever I listen to country music, I feel so lifted and inspired. Whether it be Lady Antebellum (forever my fav) or Dallas Smith, I find inspiration. The other day, I was listening to “This” by Darius Rucker (MY FAVORITE SONG OF ALL TIME), and really listened to the lyrics. One of them is “maybe it didn’t turn out like I planned, maybe that’s why I’m such a lucky man” and man does that resonate with me. I’ve had my ups and downs; my highs and lows, but man, do I have a great life.
That’s what happened with these cookies. They didn’t turn out like I wanted, but boy are they tasty. I originally went for gingerbread cookies, but then I realized we didn’t have molasses. So, after thinking about all the love on my vegan chai spiced snickerdoodles , I decided to turn these into chai spiced oatmeal cookies!
