Music, of course. It all starts from the music. An iTunes or Spotify voucher will always be welcome, depending on what device your gift recipient uses. As will a subscription to Country Music Magazine. Or the new Chris Stapleton album “From a Room: Volume 2” is on most people’s lists.
But – as my drawers overflow with non-musical country related paraphernalia I’ve treated myself too – I realise that country music fandom often spills into a whole lifestyle. Even, unfittingly, for a British city girl.
So, here’s some inspiration; gifts you’re very welcome to wrap up for me or, if you insist, the other country fans in your life.
