In honor of Country Music Month, we asked a panel of country music experts from across the country, “what is the best country song you’ve ever heard?” This installment is from Harley Rhodes. Harley is a DJ on WIRK in West Palm Beach. Here now, is the best country song Harley Rhodes has ever heard.
The best country song I ever heard is “On the Road Again” by [lastfm]Willie Nelson[/lastfm]. I first heard it when I was about 11 yrs old and my Mom would always play the record on the record player.
I was at an age when music was starting to play a real big part in my life. At the time I was not a big fan of country music, but the album Honeysuckle Rose seemed to be one that was playing a lot in my house. Even if you don’t like country, it is one of those perfect songs that will get you singing along no matter what your music preference is and is always one of those songs that goes over well in karaoke, bonfires and road trips.
It always brings back so many good memories of growing up, hanging out with the family and takes me right back to sitting in the living room in front of the record player looking at the album cover and wondering why my Mother loved this music so much. Ironically, Country music is mainly what I listen to now a days. I think it is official I have turned into my Mother.
