Say what? Since when?
This is one of those statements that makes me face palm all day long. I don’t even understand what this means. I’ve been working out to country for years. Do you think it’s your generalization that all country music is slow? Could it be the very same ideology that you possess that makes you think much of the country music I talk about is too redneck?
While some of my readers know better than this, I do have friends that have no idea how good the music I constantly talk about is. Just the other day a friend of mine asked if I liked the Josh Abbott Band. I’ve been telling people about them for YEARS! They don’t give it a chance until a credible source of theirs mentions it or plays it. In this case, Bar Stool Sports. That is why I work so hard to grow this, because I WANT to be a credible source for people in New England (any beyond) to find real country music.
So let’s address this whole I can’t listen to country music while working out thing, Okay?
It all boils down to song choice. Some artists such as Stoney LaRue, Aaron Watson, Casey Donahew, Randy Rogers, Flatland Calvary, Adam Hood, Dalton Domino, Blackberry Smoke etc, possess a large amount of songs that are upbeat. They typically require few skips to keep you on track with your workout. The real magic happens when you make a play-list that includes a lot of these incredible Texas and Red Dirt artists. So why don’t I help you with that?
I put together a few play-lists of some of my favorite bands that should help you power through most 1-2 hour workouts. I kept it light and energetic to keep your motivation up and also hopefully introduce you to some new bands.
So put on your headphones, pull up your white striped socks and best gym shorts, and let's show you how any workout can be awesome with some country music!
