28 Reasons Why Country Music Is Awesome!
Try It You Might Like It
Are you a fan of country music? If your response is "Heck no" I hope this article changes your mind. Please consider being open-minded when reading my reasons.
Some reasons might not make much sense unless you are familiar with country tunes, but I hope they tempt you to watch some of the videos I posted.
You just might enjoy an entire new genre of music and you might thank me one day. You might also never speak to me again, but that's OK, at least you tried to expand your music library.
You either like or dislike hillbilly hits. I suggest you give the country music of today a try. The twangy tunes have changed over the years. It's not as sad and depressing as you might believe. You might actually have a good time and want to consider jamming to it every day.
The old-time fans either aren't pleased with the change or they molded into the new country pop. I never had to mold because I easily feel in awe with modern country artists of today. I also appreciate the country music superstars of yesterday.
I enjoy the good ole tunes of the past, but I love the hits of the past 15 years more. My journey with being a fan of country music began with Tim McGraw. His songs roped me in. I was in the closet for a few years, but I eventually was brave enough to come out and say "I love country music!"
I have since convinced others to join me on the country music rodeo ride. I never looked back and neither have they. Trust me when I say I never thought some of my family and friends who now enjoy country music would ever, ever listen to it.
They realized that you could appreciate a multitude of musical tunes and experience a whole new world of musical talents.
If after you read my reasons you feel that I convinced you, please leave a YEE-HAW in the comment section below!
For now kick back and enjoy the ride.
