Music at the Library: CD's and Freegal

I talk a lot about books, but did you know you can find a lot of your favorite music at the library?  My personal favorite is country, and there have been a lot of big releases lately, and a few more slated for this month.   You can check out music CDs here at the library with your card, but did you know you can download three free songs a week through our Freegal service?  Just by having a library card in good standing, you can choose three songs a week to download and keep - for your phone, your PC, or tablet.  It's simple, just browse by title, artist, or genre, click download and the music is yours to keep!  You can even create playlists - I have an "exercise" playlist for my phone that I use when I run, and also a "yoga" playlist that I use to cool down.  There's a large variety of music available too, so be sure to take advantage of this service. 

Here's a few music CD's I've been enjoying recently:

(This CD is available on Freegal, too)  Kenny Chesney is one of my favorite male country artists, and this album did not disappoint!  The Big Revival debuted at #1 on the Billboard Country Music Chart, and I can see why.  The music sucks you right in, and as usual, I love the lyrics as well as the beat.  My personal favorites are "Beer Can Chicken", "Drink It Up", "Save It For A Rainy Day", and "The Big Revival".  The only song on the whole CD that didn't bowl me over was "Don't It".

Another group I just love, Lady Antebellum just released "747", which contains the hit "Bartender" that you probably have already heard a lot on the radio.  I absolutely fell in love with track #5 "Down South", and track #4 "Freestyle" is really a fun song!  A nice mix of ballads and fun get up and dance songs on this one. 

I also can't wait to hear the new Florida Georgia Line album Anything Goes, Taylor Swift's 1989, and am anxiously waiting to hear when Darius Rucker plans to drop a new album after hearing his new single "Homegrown Honey".
