As a country music fan, you’re likely used to being picked on by your non-country lovin’ friends. We bet you’ve heard this classic line thrown around dozens of times: “All country songs go, ‘My wife cheated on me, my truck broke down, and my dog ran away,‘” (sung with a terrible twang for emphasis).
While that may be true in a few select cases, you know that not all country songs are like that! But there is at least a small fraction of truth in that nit-picky line…country artists sure have a thing for songs about dogs.
