Say what you may, but country music touches the soul. No other genre of music can literally bring me to tears in a matter of seconds. It's not that I understand every emotion behind each song, but I can just feel the passion behind it. Not every country song is about a dog dying or a man cheatin'. Sure there are some, but it's more than that. I grew up listening to country music, and it will always have a special place in my heart.
"If I Die Young" by The Band Perry is an example of a song that brought me to tears even though I can't truly understand the emotions behind it. I'm thankful that I can't, and my heart goes out to those who can. Listen to the words, and I'm sure it will touch you too.
