I’m from Tennessee.” Consequently, when I could speak, I announced my name was Gary, likewise “ I too am from Tennessee.” “Inasmuch it’s a small world”, as she spoke, she smiled. Thereupon she spoke of her love of music. In contrast asked what genre of music had brought me here. | In addition, I too appreciated all types of music. Music has always been an enormous part of me with a smile on my face when I’m alone in my truck I sing along with whatever is on the radio station.
As I got older my brother introduced me to indie bands I grew to love. For example, Foster the People he told me to listen to their whole album instead of once song and that was the first full album I listened to and loved. Then, 2 years later, my still favorite band foster the people came to play at a one-day festival near my house. After weeks of convincing my mom if I could go, she finally said she yes!! That was my first concert and I went with my brother and best friend Bri.
The storytelling, back in the 1920s when country first came about cowboys ranchers would tell stories of their adventures and heartbreaks. Even though country music has evolved to fit the times, the heart of it has remained the same. Carrie Underwood paints powerful pictures with her lyrics. Taylor Swift manages to capture the entire plot Romeo and Juliet in three minutes as opposed to the play which is “two hours traffic”. The incredible perspectives and stories this music provides allows listeners to get lost in someone else's life and gain wisdom from them.

It is most commonly associated with the southern region of the U.S. "Cotton-Eyed Joe" has inspired both a partner dance and different line dances that is often danced various venues in the U.S. and around the world.

The Monterey Pop Music festival was a concert that held for three day from June 16 to June 18. Thousands of people attend the concert to watch the musical performance by bands or singer that they love. Many popular bands involve in performing their own songs or covers such as The Who, Simon and Garfunkel, Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane. Simon and Garfunkel is my most favorite artist. They both born in 1941 and attended same school.
This coming summer I will have the incredible and exciting opportunity to go and see Chicago in concert. Throughout my high school career, I was in a chamber choir. My director, born in the 50’s has an affinity for everything Chicago. This affinity led my choir to sing countless Chicago songs, like “25 or 6 to 4”, “Saturday in the Park”, and “Will You Still Love Me?”. Each of these songs now brings me back to a memorable point in my life, which is relived every time I listen to those compositions.
We just arrived home from Vietnam and I decided to write a diary entry about everything that happened and that we did. So to start with I have always sung and especially with my sisters Gail and Cynthia and my mum, my mum used to sing to us when we were little and she still does. I think I’m the best singer out of us so when my sisters were going to the pub talent show in town without me I was pretty cross, but I ended up finding a way there and joining them on stage half way through. The pub in town is where we meet Dave Lovelace who is the reason why we were able to go to Vietnam and sing, after we convinced him to take us to the audition in Melbourne. Mum didn’t seem very happy with the idea of me going to Melbourne little own Vietnam because I’m too young apparently and I had to look after my kid, so I couldn’t go, for the first few days that is.
