Who doesn’t love country music? The beautiful tunes and inspiring ballads of the Southern United States bring a smile on people’s faces like nothing else. Infused with music of Irish and Celtic origins, as well as a heavy dose of 1920s Blues, the genre has gone through a number of evolutions, from the early 20s where it was mainly blues music by “hillbilly” musicians such as Cliff Carlisle, to the present 20th century where the scene is now dominated by teen country–pop sensations such as Carrie Underwood and, you guessed it, Taylor Swift.
Country music has been a very favoured genre among amateur singers, especially when it comes to Karaoke. Most songs feature heartfelt lyrics that are quick to bring to mind and easy to sing. Unsurprisingly, you will find it hard to go through a whole night of karaoke without the occasional shout out to some popular country songs. For those country music fans, here is small list of popular tracks that should perfectly complement that peg of McDowell’s whisky for your Country-themed karaoke night.
“Need You Now” – Lady Antebellum
“Before He Cheats” – Carrie Underwood
“Country Roads” – John Denver
“Friends in Low Places” – Garth Brooks
“Whiskey Lullaby” – Alison Krauss & Brad Paisley
