Seit ihrer Entstehung in den 1920er Jahren, hat die Country-Musik Themen wie Kampf, Triumph, Heimatstolz und Herzschmerz aufgegriffen. In diesem Genre geht es oft um die amerikanische Lebensweise, persönliche Schicksale und Erfahrungen, aber auch aktuelle Ereignisse werden nicht selten auch humorvoll besprochen.

Klassiker wie „Ring of Fire“, „Folsom Prison Blues“ und „I Walk the Line“ sind über den großen Teich gelangt und erfreuen Menschen auf der ganzen Welt.
