There’s only one thing that beats a good country music marathon and it’s a country exclusive. love Songs. There is certainly no shortage of lyrics spouting over tangy, select tunes on guitar, so if you’re looking to dive in for a listen, you pretty much need to pick a category to start with.
Slow country love songs? To verify. Catchy love songs? Sure. Love songs for a long drive? A must have. And don’t forget the breakup songs, they count too.
There are countless ways to browse such a massive discography of timeless classics, from industry legends like Johnny Cash and Dolly Parton to new favorites like Chris Stapleton and Kacey Musgraves.
