About The Front Porch Music Blog

The Front Porch is a place where people gather. It’s a place where you go to sit, contemplate the things in your life, and take some time to observe the world as it passes by.

The Front Porch is a place of pause. It’s almost like an out of body experience where you just sit back and relax as the world keeps moving – both inside the front door, and outside your driveway.

For years, the Front Porch has been a staple in country music. Whether it’s Lonestar singing about the front porch looking in, or Miranda Lambert telling a story about the house that built her.

We are committed to bringing you the best views about the latest in country music. So welcome to Front Porch Music – Come on up and enjoy the view with us.
