Country Music Classics

by on January 15, 2015

“Music has always been a matter of Energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel. I have always needed Fuel. I am a serious consumer. On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio.”
– Hunter S. Thompson

All kinds of music are all right with me – I decided to take today to share with you some of my favorite country songs.  Please, feel free to list yours in the comments!

Friends in Low Places – Garth Brooks

Funny story – I was never a Garth Brooks fan until I went to one of those “lookalike shows”.  The fake Garth Brooks sang this song, and I had to look it up when I got home.

Forever and Ever, Amen – Randy Travis

I discovered this song when I lived in New Orleans.  It’s a simple, to the point love song.

 

Rough and Ready – Trace Adkins

I think the title says it all.

 

Redneck Woman – Gretchen Wilson

I like everything about this song.

 

King of the Road

I know it’s an old Roger Miller classic, but the combination of Randy Travis’ twang and Josh Turner’s buttery deep voice is to good not to share.

 

What are some of your country classics?  Leave them in the comments!
