My music playlist for today (June 11, 2012 edition)

I’m going to make this week’s playlists “for the ladies.”  Yesterday started off with the great Ella Fitzgerald in the pure jazz realm.  Today, in the world of country, I’ll go more modern and play some Carrie Underwood.

To be honest, I really haven’t followed much of the American Idol-type reality shows on television.  In fact, I’ve hardly EVER watched any of them in the entire history of the shows.  For one reason, there’s just become too many of them — the market’s saturated.  How do you tell them all apart?  I must say, though, that Carrie Underwood was a pretty good choice by the American Idol viewing public.

There are such a slew of new names and faces in the country music scene, it’s hard to know who’s who without a program.  The big question surrounding all of them is just how much staying power will they have?

When I say “staying power” among the women of country music, I’m talking about the likes of Patsy Cline, Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, Emmylou Harris, to name just a few — the ones who’ll be around for a very long time.

I’d say that it’s a safe bet that Carrie Underwood has that kind of “staying power.”  If she hasn’t faded by now, it’s not going to happen.  She just continues to ride high on the charts, and that’s a good thing.  She’s definitely got the talent.

About A View From The Middle (Class)

Hi, my name's John. I've thought about this blogging stuff for a number of years now. I got into it for real on November 10, 2011, after suddenly losing my job in late October. I've been blogging ever since, and I kept it up over a period of a year and four months of being unemployed or under-employed, to try and paint a picture of what being jobless with a family to support can be like. Finally, on February 28, 2013, I got a better job that puts us back into the "middle class." I won't stop blogging, though. Who knows, maybe I can actually turn this blogging stuff into a way to earn a living someday! If you go to my blog at https://viewfrommiddleclass.wordpress.com/ and click on my About page, it'll tell you a lot about me -- maybe more than you ever wanted to know. I'm just your average, laid-back guy who's GOING TO MAKE IT IN THIS WORLD, despite all the roadblocks thrown in the way. I also launched a "niche" blog on music at http://thecrossovermusicchannel.blogspot.com/ that I'm very excited about because of the popularity of music playlist articles here. Also, check out and "Like" this blog's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/daddysangbassdude2 for instant updates. Look forward to seeing y'all around!
