I want to thank hsofyan for the idea for this post. What is your favorite country song.? Is it sad or happy? Mine is a sad one. In fact I have a tie between Too Far Gone and Crazy . both are about love that has gone wrong and they are great to sing. How about yu?

I think of Unchained Melody as soul and Ol rugged cross as gospel.

I think my fave "country" songs are any famous songs by Johnny Cash, especially "Ring of Fire" & "Folsom Prison Blues". I never really grew up with country, and don't really know of any more of it than him and a couple of other artists.

I forgot to answer the last half of your question. "Folsom Prison Blues" - it's hard to get an emotion out of this - except for maybe nostalgia, coldness, and there might even be a tone of resignation in it (although at the same time - one of the verses is about him getting out - and it seems hopeful). "Ring of Fire" on the other hand is a "love" song (untraditional, although) and takes a cynical look at being in love.

Johnny cash is a great country artist to know. did you know Ring Of Fire was written by johnny's then girlfriend and future wife June carter?T when they first met they were married but not to each other or June had just got divorced and Johnny was married.
