Nowadays, there's a song for just about any occasion or situation you've got going on in life. Being a college student, the ground is constantly shifting under me and most days I just need a little bit of music to get me by. While I normally tell people I listen to just about anything, all my friends and family would say country is my "go to" when I need it most. Whether you love or hate country, I think you'll be able to agree with a few of these lines.
