Country music has been around for a long time. But now days you have so much more than just country music to listen to. But if your looking for music that has a wide range of feeling related music to fit whatever mood you are in, country music is the place to look. Most of the songs that are played are to hit on the emotions you are feeling and they do it with the words that they sing.
For example, Blaine Larsen, who sings “How can you get that Lonely” is talking about how even though we might see someone that has basically everything and always seems happy, actually may not be happy and end up taking their own life. But not only does it talk about taking your own life and wondering why. If you have struggled with suicide, then it makes you have a deeper meaning for the song.
The song “How can you get that lonely” was released in 2005, after the song was written by Rory Lee Feek and Jamie Teachener. Rory thought to write the song after his daughter’s school called him and told him that his daughter wanted to go home after finding out her best friends boyfriend killed himself.(www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=5642)
The main reason that I feel country is listened to is for the meaning of the songs. Most songs are written because of feelings and meanings that people are trying to show from their emotions. They have songs, that if you are feeling down and want to be happy, then all you have to do is listen to them and they make you happy. Or they have songs that if your feeling down and want a song that relates to your mood but has an uplifting message, then you can find those as well.
If you actually think about when country music got started, it started back in 1927 in Bristol Tennessee. From then it has become very well known all over the United States. Country music has also changed a lot to what it used to be as well. Now you have what they call modern country and classic country. Classic normally means old country songs from the 1930’s and up, modern means country songs that are currently playing.
But all in all I believe that Blaine Larsen singing “How can you get that lonely” is one of the best songs out there so far. Just because it speaks volumes to a lot of people around the United States.
