October is Country Music Month

I didn’t know this, but October is Country Music Month and it’s apparently official.

The story says that the Country Music Association designated October as Country Music Month in 1964, and it was made official by Presidential proclamation beginning in 1970.

I have to admit I’ve never ran to country music. Although I’m not a huge fan, I do have a few country songs in my iTunes Library that I enjoy. I may create a country music running playlist this week and give it a go. Of course, I’ll post the playlist and my thoughts as usual.

Meanwhile, if you’re a fan of country music and want to support Jogger Tunes, click on the banner below and check out what’s new and noteworthy in iTunes. If you buy anything, I’ll get a few cents per song and it won’t cost you anything extra.

Here’s what you’ll find:

Leading up to the CMA Awards in early November, Country Music Month on iTunes will feature the hottest new releases from Lady Antebellum, Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina, Martina McBride and Rodney Atkins. In addition, classic country, country music videos and iTunes original content from Taylor Swift, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley and more will be featured in the Country Music Month room.

iTunes, App Store, iBookstore, and Mac App Store

I hope you find something worthwhile and my sincere thanks if you do!
