Isn’t it funny how an artist can make our mood go from miserable and pissed off to happy and carefree? Music is such a vital part of our lives, and I think a lot of us take that for granted. Imagine going a day without hearing a snippet of ANY song. Drive your car in silence. Leave Apple Music, Spotify and Pandora off for a day. Stay out retail stores because they play various music in those vicinities. Weird huh?
Music is an anti-depressant for a lot of people. I’m not a psychiatrist, but I’m betting to say it’s an anti-depressant for 99 percent of the population. Melodies, rhythm and lyrics have a way of making you understand yourself a lot better than you thought possible.
My go-to artist whenever I need a quick boost is Luke Bryan. Granted, I have MANY artists that I listen to when I need to feel better. Eminem, Britney, Selena, Dierks Bentley and Bon Jovi are a few. Luke Bryan’s music is very upbeat, catchy and plain ol’ fun. He always manages to put a smile on my face.
I met him in Dallas in 2016. See what I mean when I said he puts a smile on my face? I was grinning so hard, my face hurt!
