My husband loves and adores (and is instilling this love and adoration in his daughter) Southern Gospel Music. I personally hate it. And he asked me one day (well, many days, because I just didn’t have an answer): “Why?”
I couldn’t understand why I had to have a “why,” and it infuriated me. To me, Southern Gospel is irritatingly peppy, but that wasn’t good enough for my husband.
Finally, one day, I told him: “It’s like a Barber Shop Quartet, which I can only listen to for so long, on way too much crack. It’s–if this is possible–too happy, too peppy, too annoying. They’re just too dang happy about something that doesn’t even Biblically jive half the time (like having a mansion…they’re not mansions like we think of, guys, I hate to tell you–more on that later, maybe).
So, that’s my reason. Most days it’s still not good enough for my husband, but I don’t know what else to say. So I ask you (just to start a dialogue), whether you like Southern Gospel or not, is my reason a reason? Or do I need more of a reason?
