July 4th is National Country Music Day. Country music has been around for many years and started here in United States. This day goes back to the 1950’s, when the Country Music Deejay Association wanted to honor Jimmie Rodgers, known as “The Father of Country Music.” There are artists like Patsy Cline, Reba McEntire, and Luke Bryan or Garth Brooks to groups like the Dixie Chicks and Rascal Flatts.
