Joe and his wife Kendra went to visit Jinger and her husband Jeremy Vuolo in Laredo, Texas for the weekend and got to experience music were never exposed to. “As we walked into the San Augustin Plaza we saw the mariachi band playing,” Jinger, 25, told producers. “They were amazing and they were dressed really nice as well.”
Jeremy, 31, explained, “I think the mariachi music is iconic in this part of the world so we’ve grown to appreciate it when we go out on the weekend and have dinner. It’s skillful and it’s beautiful.” The town of Laredo is within a few miles of the Mexican border.
“In our house growing up there were definitely rules regarding music. The goal was to keep music more melodious,” John David told cameras.
His twin sister Jana, 29, added, “We’ve had more of I guess a conservative side of music and no dancing.” Producers then showed footage of her younger brother Jackson dancing to a children’s toy with music. At the time Jana brushed it off and said, “Sometimes the little ones will jump for joy.”
“I think any of the little ones when they hear music they start jiggling around that’s natural. That’s why we’re careful about the music we allow in our home,” the family patriarch Jim Bob told cameras in 2008. On the November 19 episode he revealed, “We noticed when there was a rock beat the kids would be jumping around. We thought the more calm the music the more calm the kids would be.”
Jana rolled her eyes after seeing the old clip and said, “I think with any person you may have different views when you’re younger and things change when you get older and vice versa.”
The Counting On star previously revealed that she’s also expanding her music taste to include popular music. After fans flooded her Instagram in August to find out if she was dating she responded, “In the words of Michael Bublé, ‘Just haven’t met him yet!’”
Jinger has also branched out and started listening to Kanye West! Just a few months after she and Jeremy moved to Los Angeles, they went to the “Jesus Is King” rapper’s Sunday Service.
