ARE you tired after studying hard? American country music will take you away from all the stress for a while. The songs will transport (送到) you to the mountains and fields.

Country is simple music. Its songs are about everyday life and feelings.

Country music started in the Southern United States. It was the folk (民间的) music of the American countryside. Many of the songs tell stories about the lives of farmers. They talk about love, crops or death.

Rural life can be hard, so the lyrics are often sad. The guitars capture (抓住) the vast (辽阔的) space and the loneliness (孤独).

At first, people played the music only at family parties. But it soon became more popular. In the 1920s, country songs were played on the radio and were made into records.

When people moved to towns and cities looking for work, they took their music with them. Country music became popular across America. The 41st Annual Country Music Awards was held last Wednesday in Nashville. Kenny Chesney, 39, won country music's top prize — Entertainer of the Year.
