Track 6:  Don’t Fence Me In

I grew up on Country/Western music.  Barbara Mandrell and Anne Murray were my early heroines.  There will always be a little of that country girl inside me.  While I’m not really up for living in the country and you probably don’t want to see me on a horse, I love the feeling of exploring the world and the sense of freedom that the “West” represents. This is just classic stuff:  American independence.

Who’s Responsible: Mom & Dad
Instrument: Radio and some CD player
The Connection:  They’ve always encouraged me to chase my dreams, even if it something that they haven’t always agreed with.  Between the 2 of them, I have inherited that sense of independence and commitment to hard work to get stuff done.
