Your Take: Dad Country
Maybe you were raised by wolves, or spent your formative years in a Dickensian orphanage, forcing you to learn about country music on the streets. But chances are that your first exposure to music came from your parents. One of my first musical memories is listening to Elvis in the car with my dad; I still love The King, though my tastes now lean more toward Young Elvis rather than Comeback-era Elvis.
Since tomorrow is Father’s Day, today we want to know: how has your parents’ taste in music influenced your own listening habits?
And if you’re a parent, let us know: do you try to influence your kids’ musical tastes? There’s a lot of great country/roots music geared toward children; do you play them some some of those albums, or go straight to Hank Williams? (Hey, everybody’s gotta learn about heartbreak sooner or later.)
