12 Songs That Will Make You Like Country Music

Country music gets a bad rep. It's rumored to be all about pick-up trucks, cheating ex-boyfriends (or girlfriends), and dirt roads. However, those of you dislike country music probably have yet to realize that a fair amount of Carrie Underwood songs are actually about murder.

Yep. So technically, if you're a Law & Order fan, there's no reason why you shouldn't like country music as well (just go with me here). Sure, there are some classic country songs about love and road trips and all that jazz, but there's also many songs in country music that are all about revenge (which is probably why I like country so much). Here are 12 songs that will show you what country music is really about and will convince you to give country artists a chance:

1. Two Black Cadillacs -- Carrie Underwood

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F17%2F636149391959104118795206078_tbc%2520gif.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=767&h=91b6cc393ade865c411a5eb8d29588ddacd9b24f7d382952ef7d6b94202f0114&size=980x&c=2652091148 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F17%252F636149391959104118795206078_tbc%252520gif.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D767%26h%3D91b6cc393ade865c411a5eb8d29588ddacd9b24f7d382952ef7d6b94202f0114%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2652091148%22%7D" expand=1]

There's no way I could talk about country music without mentioning this song. It tells the story of a wife and mistress who team up to kill the cheating husband.

2. Mama's Broken Heart -- Miranda Lambert

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F17%2F636149395223701637109547949_miranda%2520lambert.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=577&h=a0d6bb60054eedab42b5e25a32c72793573f5d37f16d8b1ab88204ff3b04b082&size=980x&c=2923855195 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F17%252F636149395223701637109547949_miranda%252520lambert.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D577%26h%3Da0d6bb60054eedab42b5e25a32c72793573f5d37f16d8b1ab88204ff3b04b082%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2923855195%22%7D" expand=1]

Another cheating boyfriend, another classic song.

3. Even If It Breaks Your Heart -- Eli Young Band

It's a song that's about hope and inspiration, not revenge or murder...Wow!

4. Picture To Burn -- Taylor Swift

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F17%2F636149399230122339-530997712_picture%2520to%2520burn.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=174&h=ef5d2c822798e50608f5b1129e667000c6fb02801fb5d24490cf1913e5d5aa29&size=980x&c=4119672394 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F17%252F636149399230122339-530997712_picture%252520to%252520burn.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D174%26h%3Def5d2c822798e50608f5b1129e667000c6fb02801fb5d24490cf1913e5d5aa29%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4119672394%22%7D" expand=1]

Yeah, we're back to revenge. Also, those of you who haven't listened to Taylor Swift's first album are missing out.

5. Fancy -- Reba McEntire

I can't talk about country music without mentioning the classics.

6. Stupid -- Kacey Musgraves

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F17%2F636149403384615312-1796164313_musgraves.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=435&h=1abf2b28102785cf692965fdfc7a84a4bfcc46478055fd0e1c22236097d48515&size=980x&c=1420131320 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F17%252F636149403384615312-1796164313_musgraves.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D435%26h%3D1abf2b28102785cf692965fdfc7a84a4bfcc46478055fd0e1c22236097d48515%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1420131320%22%7D" expand=1]

It's 3 minutes of Kacey Musgraves singing about how stupid love is. Country music tells it like it is.

7. Before He Cheats -- Carrie Underwood

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F17%2F6361494048823656621010108367_before%2520he%2520cheats.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=853&h=424688b6541aafa8a1c00cbbfa406f3521e41e1218dda4c37cdafef8f215d251&size=980x&c=9838015 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F17%252F6361494048823656621010108367_before%252520he%252520cheats.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D853%26h%3D424688b6541aafa8a1c00cbbfa406f3521e41e1218dda4c37cdafef8f215d251%26size%3D980x%26c%3D9838015%22%7D" expand=1]

Possibly the most famous (or infamous?) country song. What better way to get revenge than ruining someone's car?

8. Better Man -- Little Big Town

This recent hit was penned by Taylor Swift and given to the band "Little Big Town." It's a brutally honest song that tells the story of the guy she could have stayed with if he was a better person.

9. Colder Weather -- Zac Brown Band

Country music has no problem calling people out, especially those who can't keep their promises.

10. Chocotaw Country Affair -- Carrie Underwood

In this song, a married couple goes on trial for murder and refuses to give each other up. It's like a "Law and Order" episode told in four minutes.

11. Blue Ain't Your Color -- Keith Urban

Another semi-optimistic song.

12. I'd Lie -- Taylor Swift

This unreleased song is old country T-Swift and probably one of her best.

Go fourth and find your inner Southerner, y'all! *cringes*

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
