P62 A Country Music Song Changed Her Life Forever
When Sarah was a teenager, she used to fight over almost everything with herfamily. But five years ago, while she was studying abroad in England, she hearda song full of feelings about returning home on the radio. It made Sarah think abouther family and friends back in the US. She came to realize how much she actuallymissed all of them. Ever since then, she has been a fan of American country music.
Country is a traditional kind of music from the southern states of America.Nashville, Tennessee is the home of country music. Many songs these days are justabout modern life in the US, such as theimportance of money and success, but not about belonging to a group. However, countrymusic brings us back to the “good old days” when people were kind to each otherand trusted one another. It reminds us that the best things in life are free—laughter,friends, family, and the beauty of nature and the countryside.
Sarah hasn't been to Nashville yet, but it is her dream to go there one day.She has already read a lot about the place and done some research on it. She knowsthat there is a Country Music Hall of Fame Museum in Nashville. There are also alwaysa lot of great country music concerts with famous musicians and singers, like GarthBrooks. Sarah has already listened to most of his songs. “Garth is one of the mostsuccessful musicians in American history. He's sold more than 120 million records. I hope to see him sing live one day!”
