Why Country Music is Good
November 19, 2018
Country music is a genre that is not highly perceived at Liberty North and across society. Many students here listen to pop music, rap, and the latest hits. Country music is seen as bad and that all of the songs sound the same. Others see the music as untasteful, and not having a strong message.
Country music is definitely worth the hype and is worth the time to listen to it. First of all, country music has all types of songs. Country music can be happy, sad, loving, depressing, easy going, etc. Some sad songs include “I Could Use A Love Song” by Maren Morris, “The Dance” by Garth Brooks, “You’ll Think of Me” by Keith Urban, and “Girl Crush” by Little Big Town. Some love songs include “Write This Down” by George Strait, “It’s Your Love” by Tim McGraw, “Greatest Love Story” by LANCO, and “Beautiful Crazy” by Luke Combs.
Another reason why country music is the singers all have very unique voices. Johnny Cash’s’ deep voice left a mark on many people who still remember his songs like “Ring Of Fire” and “I Walk The Line.” Dolly Parton has a unique high pitched voice in her songs. Miranda Lambert has a thick southern accent in all of her songs, being very memorable. Garth Brooks shows his extremely deep voice in his song “Friends In Low Places.”
Country music can successfully express how a person feels when it can be argued in rap music that a true feeling is not present. Rap music goes too fast for many to understand so it is harder to emotionally connect to. In country music, the theme and feeling are very easy to hear in a song. Country is easier to connect to.
This music is for every occasion. Country music can be played at tailgates for a good time. It can be played at a concert, where anyone could get pumped up. Country music can be played when you are feeling down and need a sad song.
