Listening to sad country songs can indeed make people feel sad, especially if they are at their most vulnerable. They might have recently lost the ones they love the most like their lovers, family members, and friends. Most sad songs talk about the ups and downs of love, such as letting go of a loved one, healing broken heart, or moving on with life after a break up. Country music is considered by many people more passionate and emotional than other genres such as pop and rock. That is why many sad country songs have the ability to remind you of the sweet memories that you had with a loved one before they passed away, or before a painful break up.
One of the saddest country songs of all time is One Last Time by Dusty Drake. The song tells about a phone call a man made to his wife from Flight 93 just seconds before the 9/11 incident. The man called to say goodbye, to tell her how much he loved her, and told her to be strong. She could not help but cry, as they had many plans ahead and their children were still too young to understand that their daddy had to go. The lyrics are actually a dialog between the man and his wife which happened before the plane hit the ground. The dialog is accompanied only by a piano, making the song a very emotional one. If you listen to the song, it is guaranteed to make you cry, especially if you know what it is like to lose someone you love so much. It also makes us realize that we should give the utmost love to our loved ones as we never know when our time or their time will come. Most people end up regretting that they did not get the chance to say “I love you” or to apologize for their mistakes to their loved ones before they die.
Another sad country song is He Stopped Loving Her Today by George Jones. The song tells about a man who was left by his lover and never stopped loving her for years till the day he died. It shows us that undying love does exist. This song will also bring tears to anyone who listens to it. Another sad country song that brings such an emotional impact to the listeners is If Tomorrow Never Comes by Garth Brooks. The song tells about a man who had lost the ones he loved and did not get a chance to say how much he loves them. Thus, he always reminds himself to say how much he loves his lover, so that when the time comes, she would not doubt his feeling about her. On the contrary, if you wish to listen to happy country songs instead, then the best country wedding songs of all time are the ones you must listen to. Some of the best ones are I Do by Paul Brandt, Forever and Ever Amen by Randy Travis, When I Said I Do by Clint Black and Lisa Hartman Black and many more.
