Dear Country Music, by Mike Ryan and How it Can Keep Our Spirits High for the Quarantine
Dear Country Music, you’ve always been a good friend to me. Got me through a lot of hard times, gave amazing summer nights a soundtrack, and still bring me right back to sitting on blanket with my first love watching the leaves change colors. With everything going on right now, not being able to go out and see your friends at the bar, have a barbecue or even hit the park, things seem tough but you have to appreciate the times you had and look forward to the times you will. Country Music has always been there, one of the best friends I have ever had.. a sentiment that a lot of us can get behind, especially with what’s going on around us and Mike Ryan’s Dear Country Music, puts all of that gratefulness into a beautiful song that lets you kick back, close your eyes, and feel thankfully indebted to your old friend that hasn’t left your side yet… Country Music. Ryan's song expresses to us how it has been a friend, a teacher, and it has followed us though the years, it has let us look back fondly on moments in time that we didn’t realize shaped us but we’re glad they did… Take a listen to Dear Country Music, and appreciate where you are, as hard as it seems right now, someday you’ll look back and realize country music helped you get though this too.
Lyrics to Dear Country Music,
Dear County Music We first met when I was just a kid You went everywhere that me and daddy did In his old truck Dear Country Music You helped me through those awkward teenage years ‘n talked me into drinkin’ that first beer I turned it up You live in my heart and in my speaker You’ve been my best friend you’ve been a teacher In a field or in a bar In the backseat of a car Yeah high or low You rode right with me through it Dear Country Music You made Becky think that I was cool When I pressed play to sing along with you She fell in love Dear Country Music I just wanna take the time to thank you now Your sad words got me over her somehow And we broke up You live in my heart and in my speaker You’ve been my best friend you’ve been a teacher In a field or in a bar In the backseat of a car Yeah high or low You rode right with me through it Dear Country Music Dear Country Music Made me wanna learn to play this old guitar You helped me write my first song from the heart Yeah I loved you from the start I hope you get this letter wherever you are Dear Country Music Country Music Country Music
