Meaning of Country Music

Country music comes from the soul.  It is music that is based off a life of hard work, broken hearts, suffering, and good times. Country music is unlike many other kinds of music because it can actually relate to most people. Take the song “Don’t Blink” by Kenny Chesney for example, of real life relations:

“Don’t blink
Just like that you’re six years old and you take a nap and you
Wake up and you’re twenty-five and your high school sweetheart becomes your wife
Don’t blink
You just might miss your babies growing like mine did
Turning into moms and dads next thing you know your better half
Of fifty years is there in bed
And you’re praying God takes you instead
Trust me friend a hundred years goes faster than you think
So don’t blink”. – Kenny Chesney –

This song shows just how fast life goes and how short it truly is.


Also take in that a lot of country music tells people it should matter what others think, as long as you are being you then it shouldn’t bother you. take for example the song “What do you think about that” by Montgomery Gentry,


“Some people care about what other people think
Worry about what they say
Let a little gossip
Coming from a loose lip ruin a perfect day
Say, blah, blah, blah, just a jacking their jaws
Got a letta roll off-a my back
I don’t give a dern what other people think
What do ya think about that”

These songs just go to show that life is full of challenges and good times, but no matter the situation, push through it and tough it out because it will get better. If life kicks you down, get back up and brush it off. If life gives you a happy time, then enjoy it, don’t question it. Also if life gives you heart break then move on.  It wasn’t meant to be. Live life to the fullest until there is no life left to live.
