Last week we honored the sixth birthday of Maria’s farm Country Kitchen with a couple of old favorites from the kitchen.

Today, I’d like to bring it back to music. But instead of reposting my favorite music blogs in their entirety, I’ve put together playlists of all the songs mentioned in these posts and added them to my Spotify profile. This way, instead of simply reading about why I love these songs, you can feel the love yourself through the power of music….

    Well, Maria, I tried to pick out favorite songs, but ended up saying the list would be too long. So instead, I’m listing my favorite artists and you can pick out any album, all their songs are my favorites, so any song by: Feist, Natalie Merchant, Anne Lennox, Enya, Joan Baez, Peter Gabriel, Sting, Queen, Pink Floyd, Blue October, and the Avett Brothers. There’s lots more but I’ve stopped with the ones I listen to most. But I love every album I own and the artists! Music is like poetry for me, just warms my soul and lightens my heart. Thank you for sharing your music with us. It will give me more to listen to for several days. Happy 6th year Birthday to Maria’s Country Kitchen!! Many more Birthdays to come and more music to hear!!
