Introduction: How to Write a Country Song

Picture of How to Write a Country Song

I've been really into country music lately, and after listening to this genre for a while i noticed a few similarities in themes. Not all, but most of the country songs out there talk about a failed relationship, rain, your truck, drinking, and a bunch of other sad themes. So i decided that these themes made country music easy to replicate. It was easy enough for me to make a song, so I'm sure you can do it too.

You will need-

- Writing utensil

- Paper

- Musical instrument (optional)

Try to focus on these subjects-




-A failed relationship


Optional instruments-

-Focus around the chords G and D
