When you hear the phrase, country song, what do you think of? Have you ever been to a country concert? Heard a country song? Or ever thought of the true meaning behind the music style of country?
Originating in the 1920's, Country music came from Southern America. From folk music, hillbilly stories, and western times, it has evolved into what it is present day; A story told through words and harmonic melodies.
People who listen to Country, love different things about it. Some say the gentleness of the harmonies appeal to every one. While others love the stories it tell, through the lyrics they pronounce.
My personal favorite part of Country music, is turning up the radio, rolling down my windows, on a hot and sunny day, and just singing as loud as I can.
