Nowadays, there's a song for just about any occasion or situation you've got going on in life. Being a college student, the ground is constantly shifting under me and most days I just need a little bit of music to get me by. While I normally tell people I listen to just about anything, all my friends and family would say country is my "go to" when I need it most. Whether you love or hate country, I think you'll be able to agree with a few of these lines.

Here's 20 songs that relate to being in college and away from home:


1. "Young" - Kenny Chesney.

"Had no excuses for the things that we'd done, we were brave, we were crazy, we were mostly, young"

2. "Drunk Girls Don't Cry" - Maren Morris.


"You say he saw the light, the slate is clean. He swears up and down that it's gonna be different this time..That's like saying drunk girls don't cry"

"Baby, we're diamonds, you know when we're timeless. Our hearts are waiting on memory makin"

4. "Sounds Like Life To Me" - Darryl Worley.

"Sounds like life to me, it ain't no fantasy. It's just a common case of everyday reality. Man I know it's tough but you gotta suck it up. To hear you talk you're caught up in some tragedy..sounds like life to me"

5. "Find Out Who Your Friends Are" - Tracy Lawrence.


"This is where the truth don't lie. You find out who your friends are. Somebody's gonna drop everything. Run out and crank up their car, hit the gas, get their fast, never stop to think what's in it for me, or it's way too far, they just show on up with their big old heart"

6. "Cowgirls Don't Cry" - Brooks & Dunn.


"Lessons in life are gonna show you in time, soon enough you're gonna know why. It's gonna hurt every now and then, if you fall get back on again, cowgirls don't cry"

7. "My List" - Toby Keith.


"Go for a walk, say a little pray, take a deep breath of mountain air. Put on my glove, and play some catch, it's time that I make time for that"

8. "Alright" - Darius Rucker.


"I've got all I need, and it's alright by me"

9. "Little Miss" - Sugarland.


"Little miss do your best, little miss never rest, little miss be my guest, I'll make more anytime it runs out"

10. "If You're Going Through Hell" - Rodney Atkins.


"If you're scared don't show it, you might get out, before the devil even knows you're there"

11. "Baby Girl" - Sugarland.


"Dear mom and dad please send money, I'm so broke that it ain't funny. I don't need much just enough to get me through. Please don't worry cause I'm alright, I'm playing at the bar tonight. This time I'm gonna make our dreams come true. Well I love you more than anything in the world, love your baby girl"

12. "Here For The Party" - Gretchen Wilson.

"You know I'm here for the party, and I ain't leaving till they throw me out. Gonna have a little fun, gonna get me some, you know I'm here. I'm here for the party"

"I wanna sit out on my porch telling stories bout my glory days, when I'm pushing eighty. How am I ever gonna get to be old and wise if I ain't ever young and crazy"

14. "May We All" - Florida Georgia Line.


"Kinda place you can't wait to leave but nobody does, cause you miss it too much"

15. "This One's For The Girls" - Martina McBride.


"This one's for the girls, who've ever had a broken heart, who've wished upon a shooting star, you're beautiful the way you are. This one's for the girls, who love without holding back, who dream with everything they have, all around the world, this one's for the girls"

16. "Online" - Brad Paisley.


"But I grow another foot and I lose a bunch of weight, every time I log in. Online I'm out in Hollywood, I'm 6 foot 5 and I look damn good, Even on a slow day I can have a three way, cheat with two women at one time. I'm so much cooler online"

20. "Just Another Day In Paradise" - Phil Vassar.


"Well it's OK, it's so nice. It's just another day in paradise. Well, there's no place that I'd rather be. Well it's two hearts, one dream, I wouldn't trade it for anything"

To the guy that shot my brother...

To the guy that shot my brother,

On January 9, 2019 my families entire life changed with one phone call. The phone call that my little brother had been shot in the face, no other details. We didn't need any other details. The woman on the phone who called us in full panic told us where he was so we went, as soon as possible. I don't think it helped that not even 10 min prior I talked to Zach on the phone.. kind of irritated with him, and the ONE TIME I didn't say 'I love you' as we hung up. Could've been the last time we ever spoke.. I remember pulling up to the hospital thinking 'this can't be real' 'it's not our Zach' 'this is just a dream Sarah, WAKE UP' I'd close my eyes really tight just to open them, I was still in the hospital emergency parking lot. I could still hear the ambulance sirens coming. It was all real.

The day our life's changed was definitely a test of faith. A test of how strong we were, as a family. I sat in that waiting room ready to see the damage that has been done to my sweet baby brother. Because at that point we had no idea how lucky he got. That glimpse of seeing Zach will haunt me forever. How helpless I felt in that exact moment frequently wakes me up from these horrific dreams I've been having ever since that day. That is a moment burned into my me and families brain forever.

You always hear about these things in the movies or on the news, a house being shot up, someone shooting another innocent person, not to care if they died on your watch. But we found ourselves on the news.. We have been confined to the hospital since that day. Running on barely any sleep, taking shifts of sleep so we don't make ourselves sick taking care of Zach. Watching him suffer. Undergoing surgeries, to repair the damage you did.

Before I proceed let me tell you a little something about the man you shot.

Zachary Keith Wright. A blonde hair blue eyed boy. Who could potentially be the most annoying human on the planet (possibly coming from his sister). A man who loves his God first, loves his family second. Perfect by no means, but almost perfect to me. A 19 year old who was to graduate high school this month. After graduation he was prepping to leave for Marine boot camp in the summer.. being in the military has been Zach's dream since he could talk. Literally. Running around, playing war with underwear on our heads, and finger guns. Some would say we looked like natural born assassins.. growing up he has been a country boy. Let me tell ya country to the core. He loves this country like he loves his family. He believes in helping people, taking charge in what's right, and never leaving a brother behind. He's lived by that his whole life. Until now....

The day you shot him. The day not only did you change my brothers life, you changed his families life too. The day you almost ripped my brother out of this world... for what? A misunderstanding? Because you've let something take ahold of your life that you can't let go you're willing to kill someone innocent over? Luckily for him, his guardian angels were protecting him in your time of cowardice. There were 3 times that day he should've died, the time you shot him, the time you tried to shoot him again as he stared you directly in the face, (even tho he couldn't talk I know you could read his eyes, and he still intimidated you. That's why you tried to pull the trigger again) and the time he was running out of the house. But he lived. A man who was shot in the face, didn't lay there helpless, didn't scream in agony. That MAN walked to the neighbors to get help. Why? Because he's a MAN, and because he's on this earth for a reason.

It's gonna sound a little strange not only to you, but the audience who is reading this. I must say thank you. Even in this situation, this was the best outcome we could get. He gets to live. He will make a full recovery. He will graduate. And he will go off into the Marines. You united my family together. Closer than ever. Thank you. You tested our faith and brought us closer to our God. Thank you. Because of your moment of weakness, you showed us what prayer could do. Heal anything. Thank you. This was a bump in the road, and a helluva way to kick off our year of 2019. But here we are.. all laying in the hospital. I'm looking around as mom is sleeping in her recliner chair exhasted but still here, Zach his awake playing his xbox all hooked up to machines, fighting to heal and get better. And of course I'm writing this letter to you.

See you in trial,

From the girl whose brother you shot.

'Fight the good fight' - 1 Tim 6:12 🤟🏼💙

It's the beginning of the semester and that means half of the students on campus have decided that we are going to go back to the gym after their workout routine fell through last semester. It's been months since we've stepped foot in the gym, but we are ready to attack it and get fit. That is until we get there and start going.
