Canadian Country Music

Country music has been an interest of mine ever since I can remember. It has developed into one of the largest music industries in the world today. I started to really get interested in the country music industry when I was only eight years old, that is when we got our first radio. We could only listen to it about one hour a day so we wouldn't run down the battery.

The six string guitar was the prefered instrument to most song writers and artists at the start. Later more instruments joined, like the steel guitar, the violin better known in country music as the fiddle, drums, and back up singers.

All country music songs that are written have a story belonging to the song. They will be about trains, cars, trucks, an individual that someone knows, someones love life, or a disaster that has happened a long the way. The next time you listen to a country song because you like the tune, or the artist, listen to the words very closely and see if I am correct.

When I was nine years of age, my father came home one day after helping my uncle saw wood. He was carrying an old guitar that he had bought from my uncle for only four dollars. He handed it to me and said, here is your first guitar and I want to hear you learn to play. I was so happy I cried. I made up my mind then that I would not let my father down, I would learn to play somehow.

After a few weeks my parents went to the city to do some shopping, it took just about a whole day for the return trip because of the road conditions and sometimes weather conditions. When they arrived home my mother handed me a package from a music store. When I opened it up and took out the book inside, it said learn to play the guitar from A to Z. I was finally going to learn to play.

My parents would get so mad at me because I would rush home from school and go straight to the radio and forget about my daily chores. Those days the station only played country music from 12:00 Noon until 6:00PM. I was always in trouble because I would either forget my chores or be doing them later than I should.
