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.
