Spring Concert Series

Almost as much as the written word, music inspires me.

I love that it’s celebrated and performed in the Bible.

I love that it can lull to sleep or energize to run an extra mile.

I love that it riles a crowd and adds romance to food and candlelight.

I love that it attaches to specific memories and commemorates momentous occasions.

I love that it tells a story and paints a picture.

I love that it unifies, inspires, encourages, and communicates.

I love its variety, genius, and performance.

It moves me.

The great thing, I enjoy so many different kinds of music. No matter what mood I’m in, some sort of music fits it. There’s not a whole lot in life you can say that about.

Something about Spring makes me dive deeper into the realm of music.

And so I shall here on Dry Ground during the Spring Concert Series!

Nothing fancy, just a discussion about music and highlight of my faves from different genres and maybe share some of my best music memories. We’ll see how this unfolds.

So my question of the day for you is: What is your absolute favorite genre/type of music? It’s hardly a fair question since I’d have a hard time answering it myself. Are you classical? Contemporary Christian? Country? Pop? Heavy Metal? Or a combination of a couple of those? What kind of music moves you?

To get things started, and fresh from Sunday night’s Rock and Worship Roadshow in San Antonio, TX, here’s a song that moved me!

I hope you’ll stay tuned!

Lori, great post! I was blessed to attend the Rock and Worship Roadshow, too, and loved it. What a blessing.

I don't know if I can answer your question! I love so many types of music: Christian, of course, but also alternative, classical, folk, etc etc.... I discovered that I even enjoy of my historical romance characters plays banjo and I've been listening to bluegrass while I write his scenes, and I love it.

I saw them on the Road Show as well when they were here in Phoenix. What a fantastic time that was.

Glad you had fun.

Sounds fun. It's no secret my musical test are hard rock - Phantasmagorical Freek Friday at for instance.

I love a hard rock, heavy metal ballad.

Can't wait for the series!

Your fav is Contemporary Christian?

Susie - I love when a new genre appeals to me, or I can at least appreciate a talent. A good banjo picker blows my mind - so amazing!
Lynn - Yea, the R&WRS is a trip!
K.M. - I highlighted Mercy Me today b/c of last night's show and this is a song from their new CD. I love so many kinds of music, I'm not sure if I can pick just one. If I was a music genre, I'd be a rainbow! Haha.
