Important Lessons Country Music Taught Us

Your cheatin’ heart will make you weep. Your cheatin’ heart will tell on you.

Do whatever it takes for the person you love.

You can always count on your roots, and your friends in low places.

Always choose to be a cowboy.

Forever feels like true love.

Melodies sound like memories.

Never forget where you come from.

No matter how hard things get, you can always try again.

Don’t ever cheat on a country girl.

Country girls are powerful, and confidence is sexy.

Don’t be an asshole. Just be humble, and kind and the world will be a better place.

“Live Like You Were Dying” - Tim McGraw

Don’t let anyone ruin your happiness.

Cherish your memories!

Have fun.

Enjoy the simple things in life.

Make your someone special feel special.

Live and learn.

“Life ain’t always beautiful, but it’s a beautiful ride” - Gary Allan
