I'm not sure of the exact year, or even how we discovered Kathleen Edwards (ACL maybe?), but it was a good day. Her music is considered alternative country - I would say because her songs vary so much. Although she does rock out on many of her songs, she also pulls back with softer and more emotional songs. Her CDs flow perfectly and it's pure joy listening to them from start to finish.
Kathleen Edwards' music reminds me of summer. The summer we started listening to her must have been one where we visited the beach often. All of my memories of her music involve us driving in husband's old Explorer, with the windows down and the music up, and us enjoying each other, good music, and a warm breeze.
