Country music—it’s…depressing.

Posted on 4/19/2019 by Greg Yoder

Two of my adult daughters love country music. I’m not here to tell you whether or not our kids should listen, but I am here today wondering about it. I was riding with my youngest daughter when she was playing it on the radio. One song said, “People say I have a drinking problem, but I got no problem drinking at all.” Right after that, a song about meeting a woman in a provocative outfit in a bar. Then another song with words that, well, would’ve gotten my kids in trouble. Here’s the question I asked, “Why do you listen to this stuff?” While the melody was kind of catchy, the lyrics were what Proverbs calls devious or crude talk, which we’re not supposed to do. Without being legalistic, tell me what YOU think. Comment at

Suggested Reading: Proverbs 4:24 Ephesians 4:29

Lately, it seems like lots of country music praises God/Jesus.
The other stuff is normal carnal and flesh desires in a catchy tune and fun to dance to, too. (if you're 15% country like me.)
I could hear a whole series of sermons on this topic! Legality is the key.
Love you! Thank you!
