My defining music memory this year is blasting “Dancing in the Courthouse” in the car after winning a hard-fought four-week trial. Lawyer hip hop is a pretty niche genre, so I have to give credit to Dominic Fike for the perfect soundtrack for that moment. Special thanks to “Dial Drunk,” “Heartbroken,” and “You Got This,” which I played on repeat on the way to court each morning of the trial to ease my nerves with some top of my lungs commute singing.

Other memorable musical moments:

  • “BSC” at the Maisie concert at Ace of Spades with my girl Kellen;

  • “Dance The Night” and “Speed Drive” when my daughters insisted we play the Barbie soundtrack on repeat for at least a month straight;

  • Arden in her little three-year-old voice yelling at Alexa to play “That’s Not How This Works,” then asking me every time what the song was about;

  • Joking with Katie and Kel that “love is embarrassing” would have been Kellen’s high school anthem had it been around 20+ years ago;

  • Cleaning my house to the sadness and hope of Kelsea Ballerini’s Rolling Up the Welcome Mat album;

  • ALL the Taylor Swift dance parties.

I never really know what to say about the songs in my guest list each year, but I have no less appreciation for the songs that define my days as each year passes. Here’s to another year of music.

And thanks again Katie and Kellen for compiling this list with me! I fall in love with our list every year.
