Country music has always told stories.  Stories about real life, the sad life, and the happy life.  Country Music has been used in countless weddings because of the real love that is told.  Country Music is also the song for a break-up!  Sometimes we just need Country Songs For a Good Cry!

What’s the old joke about sad country music? What do you get when you play a country song backward? You get your wife back, your kids back, your car back, and your dog back!  While that has been a running joke from people who do not listen to Country Music, it’s kind of true.  Country music has always been the music of the common man.  Today, we see country music used in lots of different ways.
