The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little 'extra' - Jimmy Johnson


Not many teenagers listen to country music. Then again some do. The reason I like to listen to it, is because I think the songs tell stories in a way. Also, some artists’ songs relate to people and situations. Like most of Taylor Swift’s songs can relate to teenage girls. Hunter Hayes can relate to younger listeners as well. Then you have artists like Alan Jackson, Tim McGraw, and Toby Keith who have been around for a good while. Country songs also can have a lot of meaning. In the wake of the September 11 attacks (9-11), Alan Jackson wrote the song ‘Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning).’ Jackson wanted to write a song that expressed his thoughts and feelings about what had happened. I don’t understand why so many people don’t like country music. There is so much meaning behind some of the songs, but nobody will even give it a chance.


The author's comments:
So many people say they 'hate' country music, but no one really cares about it. Country music has so much more meaning than mostly all other music. For example, is there really any meaning behind any Lil Wayne songs? Don't get me wrong, I love Lil Wayne's music, but to me there is no meaning to it. There may be and I just don't see it, but I can almost always see the meaning behind country music songs.

I agree with your point of veiw. I listen to country music religiously. Not many people like country music because they think its the old time hick music that hill billies listen to (my opinion). I think all music should get a fair chance, and country music is not given the chance.
