After you guys paved the way for Adele to take ownership of my heart, it’s been a rosy walk in the park when it comes to my music collection. Well, that’s not exactly true, most of my favorite songs of hers make me want to curl up and cry for days on end, but it hurts so good. And really, it’s only about to get better:
“The melodies and to-the-point lyrics I have found in a lot of American styles of music is definitely something I’m going be pursuing heavily from now on,” Adele said. “I want to spend some time in Austin in Texas and Nashville, Tenn., and learn about it.”
She’s talking country and bluegrass, friends. That’s my territory. She also said that she wanted to record her next album “in the American South.” Again, my neck of the woods.
Ok, I have to go, you guys, I have to get started on my creepy yet well-meaning fan letter to Adele in which I try to convince her to record her album in my town so we can be the best friends we were meant to be. I’m not going to be able to help the tear stains, but do you think adding a splash of my perfume is trying too hard?
