If You Can Understand Brad Paisley's Lyrics, You Can Understand Anything


This will give you a smile: (click) learning English through country music...

Rana Lee, a recent arrival from South Korea, listens to Brad Paisley's fishin' song and quickly gets the drift - the guy loses the girl. It is a country and western song, after all. One line perplexes her, though: "I spend all day out on this lake and hell is all I catch."

Do Canadians still call it Country and Western, or is this journalist just way behind the times?

Loved the article, other than that! I start my day usually with your blog. You must get up early!

Dear Tony,

Thanks!

No, Canadians do not call it C&W .. only journalists.

FYI..

We have an uphill battle, I fear...

Google:
