Spotify vs. iTunes: Explaining the Difference in Money

Country Music on Veteran’s Day

As much as country music has become about partying, girls, and drinking beer it’s days like these when the genres’ roots shine through. Before it was about all that, country music was about family, doing what’s right, and honoring those that have served. Nowadays songs with those messages are few and far between. Artists such as Toby Keith, Brantley Gilbert, and Justin Moore stand apart when it comes to such music. Both Moore and Gilbert have singles on radio now honoring those who have served. Justin Moore’s “This Kind of Town” includes the line, “Tie a yellow ribbon on a tree to say thank you,” a sentiment to a common southern gesture to show support for the troops. Moore’s “One Hell of an Amen” opens with a verse honoring a man who’s died in battle, “Preacher said he died too young, over there totin’ that gun, for Uncle Sam and our freedom.” Country music needs more songs with these messages. So on Veteran’s Day it’s important to remember to thank those who have given their lives for this country.
