I hate country music but if I need to play something quickly with little or no prep time, country is the way to go. The one, four and five chord in any key will get you going .Add a sad story and there you go. Even you can be a country western star. The music has been around for a long time. There is a new video out playing homage to the 50th Anniversary of the Country Music Association Awards. If you feel a need to go country, at least watch the video. It is an elaborate country western star studded sing along. There aren’t too many times to hear so familiar songs sung by so many famous people.

See and hear Carry Underwood, Tim McGraw and Luke Brian to name just a few. The video is called Forever Country.   It is a medley mashup of three country music classics. We all remember John Denver’s Take Me Home Country Road. Willy Nelson’s On the Road Again. Why is country music always talking about roads? Then there is Dolly Parton’s I Will Always Love You that Whitney Houston gave the song a life of its own on the Popular Charts  for a long, long  time. Dolly is the Queen of Country Music and has been for about 50 years so it is almost fitting that she ends the video with her version of her song.  You can always see more of these guys at the Country Music Awards.
