Country Music Songs Tell Stories
Everyone loves a good story, and country music does exactly that! There are songs that tell love stories, there are songs that tell stories of women empowerment, and then there are songs that tell stories of betrayal and love lost. But the common theme behind each song, no matter what story is being told or if the story is true or made up, is that there is a lesson learned, and in almost all cases, the story is relatable to many of its listeners.
Have you ever listened to Dolly Parton’s song Jolene? The song describes a beautiful woman with auburn hair, ivory skin, and emerald eyes whom Dolly’s man is smitten with. She begs and pleads with Jolene to not take her man simply because she can. The song is totally fictional, nonetheless, there’s likely many women out there who’ve encountered similar situations. Dolly did an interview and revealed that Jolene was an 8-year-old little girl who was a fan of hers. Dolly simply liked the name Jolene so much that she said she’d write a song about it. However, the origin of the story stems from a bank teller having a crush on her husband.
Whether you’re a fan of the genre or not, you can’t deny the raw talent and storytelling relatability of country music.
Country Music Brings Forth a Unique Style of Fashion
It can’t go without saying that country music has its own sector in the world of fashion. Sure, everyone knows and loves the infamous cowboy boots, jeans, and cowboy hats, but what about all the embellishments on hats and jackets, the tassels and fringe on dresses and skirts, and, of course, the big hair and plaid shirts?
These fashion trends started “way back when,” but have stood the tests of time to this very day. Just as Dolly Parton and Patsy Cline sported fringe and embellished dresses, the same can be said about Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood. Alternatively, Willie Nelson proved that country music isn’t all about boots and hats, as he’s iconically known for his braids, sneakers, and bandanas!
Holding true to its virtue, country fashion is just as versatile as the music itself... there’s a little something for everyone!
Country Music Takes You Back to a Simpler Time
If you’re a country music fan, you’ve probably listened to it since you were a child. And the times we’re in today, a single song from your childhood can take you back to a time that was much simpler. Maybe as a child, every Saturday morning, your mom would blast an Elvis song to wake everyone up and get the day started.
Country music also provides you with an escape from the stressors of everyday life. After a long and stressful day of work, the playful sound of Little Big Town supplies the perfect sound to uplift your spirits. Then again, maybe you just went through a breakup, and you’re not ready to get over it yet. What’s the solution? Listen to a sad country music song. Not only will it allow you to get all your emotions out, but it has just the right lyrics to start your healing process!
