“Country” Songs, Vol. 1: Non-Country Songs

This is part 3 of a 4-part series featuring songs with the words "City" and "Country" in their titles. In researching for this series, I found a disproportionately high number of country songs with "Country" in their titles. I also found quite a few non-country "Country" songs. These are those. The last post in this series, which you'll see tomorrow, consists solely of country-music songs with the word "Country" in their titles. For those of you who enjoy that style of music, I think you'll find much to be pleased with. For those of you who don't particularly enjoy country, today's post is for you. Enjoy!  ~  JH
