So, there it is had by you; a summary of the most usually requested tracks in over four years of touring. I am hoping this is helpful to you.
Country music happens to be described with a true number of stereotypes over the years, some good, some not good, some clever, plus some not. No doubt no doubt you've heard somebody mockingly describe country tunes having a variation on this basic idea: "My dog left me, my woman got stolen, and my vehicle left me for another guy" (something like that). There is also the description that is famousi believe it was Hank Williams but I may be wrong) of country music as "3 chords and the truth" that I think is about right.
But, in spite of the seemingly superficial "good love gone bad" metaphorical aspect, there has been a number of country song titles that are not only clever, but also profound. Maybe just because associated with way the song titles highlight something obvious that had not been described in a way that is certain. It had been some doin' that is tough what with corn shuckin, tobacco chewin, and hay pilin' all keepin me busy, but I been able to whittle my listing of the cleverest country song titles right down to 5:
1. She Thinks I Still Care - George Jones
This Jones classic song of heartbreak is often a song that is great clever title or perhaps. This song heralded George Jones's breakthrough of his own unique design and had been a no. 1 hit. But the wonderful irony, therefore thinly and sarcastically veiled into the name, is exactly what really makes the track work. When George sings: "just because we saw her then fell all to pieces/ she believes I still care" we believe feeling because we've all thought it prior to.
2. I Forgot More Than You Will Ever Know About Her - Different Music Artists
Everyone and their sibling in the music globe has covered this 1. Johnny money, Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn...the list continues. It is another standard that is absolute the country music canon; and there's a cause for that. Another heartbreak track, we come across within the title the sound of a spiteful lover that is scorned having trouble using the loss in his beloved. The title is almost a reassuring mantra, reducing this new enthusiast and consoling the speaker
. "You think you know the look about her" on her lips/ the thrill of the touch of her fingertips/ but I forgot more than you'll ever know. Well written.

Can it be the instruments? Typically it had fiddles and even high spirited instrumentals, and later slow simple chords, but then it definitely rules out almost all the top Country artists on today's top ten, and even many older artists if that makes.
Typically this Music had very familiar lyrics. The song would inform a distinctive tale, of loss, discomfort and life lessons, this set it irrespective of a great many other genres of music, but this 'old' style seems lost in today's modern world, and even the 'story telling' words be seemingly lost among more commercial kind songs.
Has it undoubtedly lost its twang? Can it be the twang which makes Country? Numerous songs that are modern lost their twang, but does taking the twang out, take the country out? Does Country be simply pop music or possibly blues? When we pay attention to this Music, we recognize a certain element that distinguishes it off their subgenres of music. But even the many hardened Country Music fan can have issues differentiating Country off their pop music genres, if we view somebody like Carrie Underwood, a well known up and coming celebrity, her music appears to hold little in typical aided by the this Music vocalists of old, and despite her, it may sometimes be hard to differentiate her music from contemporary pop music.
Is there something that determines whether you are listening or perhaps not? A purist may say that it hasn't really been Country because the 1970's where the expression Countrypolitan came into being, and C. Pop became a genre. It is right here it is lost by us, for them something that isn't 'pure' Country, should not be considered in this genre.
