That’s what Cori says every time we get in the car. At age 20 months, she is already requesting music. She loves music that has woahs, and oooos, and aaaaahs, and she sings along quite well. She has a favorite song at the moment. A song we pretty much listen to on repeat every time we get in the car. Good thing her momma likes it too! :) It’s Barefoot Blue Jean Night. It’s pretty catchy and Cori sits in the back swaying back and forth, keeping the beat as she taps her thigh, singing “woah-oah-o, woah-oah-o, woah-oah-o” over and over and over again. And when the song ends, she frantically asks for more! HA! .. We do have to make one minor adjustment to the lyrics. The 4th line of the song says, “the girls are always hot and the beer is ice cold.” The thought of my child walking around repeating that is not a pleasant one so, we sing very loudly, “the girls are looking pretty and the milk is ice cold!” HA! :)

  • Barefoot Blue Jean Night – Jake Owen
  • Just One – Brandon Heath (she LOVES when I put one finger up every time Brandon says the word, “one.”)
  • This is the Stuff – Francesca Battistelli (she loves the jingly tune!!)
  • Rise – Shawn McDonald (the acoustics are great and she taps and taps and taps her leg)
  • American Honey – Lady Antebellum (I think it’s because I put honey in her oatmeal for breakfast! HA!)
