Musical Free Association

Time for a psychology experiment. Free association, music style. I'll start with Musician #1 (singer, songwriter, group, whatever selected totally at random - don't ask how) and then I will list the first musician that comes to mind (Musician #2). Reply in a comment with your association to Musician #2, and the next associates to Musician #3. If you know why that particular musician came to mind, then share.

This is a chance to get you lurkers out of the woodwork and mingle with the regulars. Come on, people, I know more people glance at this rambling blog than pipes up. That means you, sister-in-law. And you, too, Cambridge, Minnesota - I see you pop in every couple of days. California, I'm waiting to hear from you. You can reply anonymously, if you feel the need, but at least give a name and/or a location. Here we go.

Musician #1: Susan Ashton

Hi, I'm Euphrony. I hail from Spring, Texas and:
Susan Ashton --> Garth Brooks

(Susan Ashton going on tour with Garth Brooks was, I believe, her first forayer out of contemporary Christian music and into more secular music; thus Ashton to Brooks. A close second association was the Ashton, Becker, Dente collaboration.)

Now it's your turn. GO!

Hi, I'm Anne. I hail from LaGrange, Kentucky

Musician #2 - Tommy Emmanuel

I was up late one night during the holidays and stumbled across a show on PBS featuring this artist. I couldn't go to bed until I found out his name. I was fascinated by his guitar playing and how he uses the entire instrument. I can't wait to purchase some of his music.

Hope I did this correctly. :)

Let me try.

Hi Ryan, from Houston, TX

Garth Brooks - Rascal Flats

When my wife gets in the mood to listen to her Country CD's that is the order. These guys have a good sound and tight harmonies, one of the few country groups I actually enjoy instead of tolerate.

Rascal Flats - Carrie Underwood

I don't listen to country music, and really have no idea who Rascal Flats are or what they are famous for, but during the American Idol finals a couple of years ago, Carrie Underwood sang a really neat duet with them.

Discontented, thanks for saying hi.

Anne, if you want to jump back in the chain, you can take off from Carrie Underwood.

(Interesting sidenote: one of the members of Rascal Flats was once in a CCM group called East to West, that had a few hits in the mid 90s.)

No way!!! I thought I recognized one of the guys! That's funny, I saw them with Mark Lowry and the-latin-girl-who's-name-I-can't-remember...

Anyway, I thought they were dorks - they even did a portion of their set doing impressions of other Christian artists.

Good times.

Carrie Underwood-Kelly Clarkson

Well, they are the most popular American Idols.

I'm Susanne, and I'm from Sugar Land, TX:

Kelly Clarkson - Justin Timberlake

Weird, I know, but when I was at the gym a Timberlake song came on right after Clarkson's "Since You've Been Gone." (no, I'm not a real fan of either of these people, but I didn't take my headphones to the gym that day!) :)

Okay, lets make the obvious connection:

Justin Timberlake -> Janet Jackson

Move along, please. Next artist. And thanks for dropping by, Susanne.
