The most important part of a country song might be the first line. It's the first thing that hooks you into the rest of the song. Every time a country song comes on the radio, it makes you feel an emotion. That's one of the best things about country music, it's storytelling at its finest.
My favorite country song right now is "Kinfolks" by Sam Hunt. I love the message he sends and I am a huge fan of the lyrics and the beat, as well. The first line is "I saw you going by, I had to say hello." That sets the tone for the rest of the song for sure.
