I’ve noticed that when people are asked,

“What kind of music do you like to listen to?”

The most common response is something along the lines of,

“I like all music; anything but country.”

I think the stereotype surrounding country music has shaped our opinions before we really listen to what country music has become. It’s not just rednecks singing about heartbreak and drinking anymore! Modern country has become something much more, and trust me when I say it’s worth trying!

The reason why so many people love country music is the heart behind it. Listening to it just makes you happy; It reminds you of the carefree days of summer and the little moments that make life beautiful. Country music is a sense of “small town” community; a personification of what really matters: good friends and family.

Give this playlist a chance, and maybe you’ll find some new favorites.  There’s nothing wrong with a little southern hospitality!
