Shana Hurt is a huge fan of quotes and maintains several quote websites. She enjoys collecting and sharing quotes and sayings.
Country music speaks to its listeners through the heart. The genre often features songs about real life, along with the ups and downs everyone faces at some point or another. Just as individuals can relate to quotes that they feel are a description of themselves, people do the same with their music.
People often relate songs to a person, particular event, or just a happy time in their lives. They can relay personal thoughts and feelings about people and places, after all . . . can't you think of at least one song that describes a relationship in your life? Do you and your significant other have a particular song that is Your Song?
Many country music songwriters, as well as other genres of musicians, write the lyrics and sometimes the music for their songs. It's no wonder with that kind of talent why so many of them may have a few wise quotes about life . . .

I hope that everyone enjoys reading this hub as much as I did making it, especially about the 80s generation. It brought back a lot of memories of growing up in the 80s. The parents were right, those were the times of our lives. LOL. Although my time limits my comment feedback, I TRULY appreciate all comments and readers!

Very enjoyable Hub,
Music touches us in so many ways, how often do we hear a song on television or the radio that immediately triggers "Instant Recall" of a past event or experience.
Such an important medium.

Great hub, and it inspired me to share a quote of my own...
"Money is merely the means of being able to afford all those things that keep me broke."
I said that.
Little Kim from Any town U.S.A. on January 27, 2011:
"Our lives are better left to chance, I could have missed the pain, but I'd have missed the dance" I think that's right. Long time since I listened to Garth.
