The country playlist you NEED.

I’ve loved country music ever since I first heard it, I think the first song I really became hooked on was Somethin’ Bout A Truck by Kip Moore. It was literally religiously on repeat, it was my soundtrack to everything, anyone else probably would have been bored of it longggg before I succumbed to it.

What is it about country music that is so captivating?

Well, I am one of those people who listen to the words of a song before the music, I am passionate about stories too, you’re transported somewhere, taken away from your reality from a few minutes when you let the words and sound of a country track in, one song that for me does this almost magically, is Something In The Orange by Zach Bryan. Country songs tell stories, and the words are generally full of such hopeful romance – which I connect with on a deep level.

When I’m feeling low, the songs are like a hug for my mindset, soothing my worries and warding away heartbreak. When I am feeling on top of the world and full of motivation, they perfectly compliment my mood, filling me with optimism, it’s funny how you can interpret or hear songs differently depending on your mindset.

Obviously the accents, their voices are just mmmmmm, most of the guys are pretty easy on the eyes too! Most country artists I listen to are from the United States, and whether the song is about heart-break or finding your soulmate, I can’t help but feel the emotion the artist has poured into the song. You don’t just listen to country music, you feel it in your heart and soul!

Country music is on the rise:


I feel a little protective of the genre, but country music is experiencing a surge in popularity. It is hailed as the ‘fastest growing music genre in Britain’ according to The Guardian, with digital streaming figures almost doubling in 2020, recorded by the Country Music Association.

So, if you’re not familiar with country music, I highly recommend checking a few of these tracks out, you’ll be heading over to Ariat to order your first pair of cowboy boots in no time! And if you already love the genre, then I hope you’ll enjoy this playlist and possibly even discovering a new track or two.
