Music is one of the best healers in the world, capable of invoking emotions and memories we’ve long thought are gone. Sometimes, there are songs that serve as our gateway to another time of our life and we associate that song with an event. However, you won’t be able to enjoy such beautiful music without the artist behind it. These events, memories, and emotions that you’ve felt throughout the years are likewise equally attributed to the artist. Amongst the plethora of music genres, country music has been notable for creating catchy and unforgettable songs, especially during the ’70s.
