To help celebrate Country Music Month, we asked some experts from around America, what is country music? This installment is from Big Sexy. Big Sexy owns the evening airwaves in Charlotte, North Carolina. Here is his answer to what country music is…
When people ask the question about what ‘Country Music Is’ I think the answer is simple. It’s me. Country music is all about who I am. Sometimes I don’t know if the songs shape my life or if my life in general just relates well with most the songs. Take a song like “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” and it describes most my nights during the summer. Then you see the video and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jake Owen[/lastfm] is tearing up a lake behind a sweet boat. Everyday during the summer I try my hardest to go out on the lake and sometimes it works, and sometimes I just have to wait for the next day. Either way I relate to that Country song.
Now I don’t only relate to the fun and upbeat songs but even other ones like “Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away” by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Justin Moore[/lastfm]. Talk about a Country song that everyone can relate too at some point in there life. A song that talks about how much it hurts to know the one you love and miss so much is in a better place but yet it hurts so much to know that. The crazy thing is I know for sure I’m not the only person that can relate too this song, but thats how country music is.
Look at how many people hear the new song from [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Brad Paisley [/lastfm]and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Carrie Underwood[/lastfm], “Remind Me.” Maybe there driving down the road after a long day at work, or leaving a girlfriend or boyfriends house after a heated argument. Country Music is one of the only genre’s of music that people can sit and relate too, and then get some type of sensible input on what they should do to fix it.
Country music is a lot of things. I am a lot of things. I am a person though, and country music is my music. So all in all Country Music is me.
