Music plays a big role in our lives, we know that is a broad statement and a lot of people feel so much through the music they listen to. So let's discuss it! Why is music so influential on us? We personally come from families with a lot of musicians. Shelby's dad is a musician, Carissa's is married to one, and her younger brother has always written songs, recorded music, and performed.

We start back with our early memories of influential artists which we discuss as Tom Petty and The Refreshments. Then our conversation moves into our favorites now, which we both agree that T Swift is incredibly impactful on our lives since we grew up with Taylor Swift as she wrote the songs about our lives. Carissa mentions Mariah Carey as a staple in her growing years. We talk about the different genres and current faves:

Kasey Musgraves, Margo Price, The highwomen, The Carters, Beautiful Chorus, and Trevor Hall.

We wrap up the conversation touching on the idea that songs allow you to feel emotions that are hard, uncomfortable, unwanted, or sought after. Music creates a space and teaches us to feel sadness.
