Way back in the day, when I first created my Facebook profile, my music preferences read, and I quote, “Everything except for country music. Country music is the WORST.” So imagine my surprise when, during a drive from D.C. to Philly, I stumbled onto a country music radio station and stayed on it for the rest of the trip.

So, when Emily suggested we do a country-themed workout playlist, I squealed with joy.
