    Default most powerful country songs--lyrics wise

    So what country songs do you think have the most powerful lyrics??

    My picks are:
    'Live Like You Were Dying"
    "Independence Day"
    "Moments"
    "Don't Blink"
    "You're gonna Miss This"
    "I hope you dance"

    Any to add? Delete?

    To me there are a lot of songs out there in country music that have strong lyrics. In my opinion the newest one would be the newest song from LeAnn Rimes named "Give".

    God bless you and her always!!!

    Johnny Cash - Hurt , he new he was at the end, at the end he relised it all

    and he loved his girl, he really did,

    finally showed himself and his deepest thoughts missing everyone

    and you can have it all, i think he missed his girl



    In the end all the money doesnt mean evertyhing he missed her so much

    and u can have it all my empire of dirt

    I love "If I Die Young" by The Band Perry. It's not to complex, but it gets to me everytime!

    I like Hurt by Johnny Cash ~ Considering it's a cover of a song of a different genre completely, he did an amazing job.

    I just thought that I would point out that Mr Cash did not write this song...It is by Trent Reznor (spelling?)

    Check out the original version by NIN...I like certain parts as performed by NIN better and certain parts by cash better.

    I just noticed Lost already pointed this out...

    It may be considered "Folk" but give "Sam Stone" by John Prine a listen....it REALLY get into you soul.

    Check him about James Otto, A good place to start would be by listening to his song named "I Just Got Started Loving You" because it went on to be the #1 country song of 2008 and also scored James a Grammy award nomination in early 2009 along with his being a co-writer of the song named "In Color" done by Jamey Johnson which went on to be named the 2009 CMA and ACM Song of the Year.
