Country music traces its beginnings to the 1920’s, but I was born in 1947, so anything before that is beyond my personal experience. I’ve looked back through the decades from 1950 to 1999 and chosen the songs that were not necessarily the most popular, but ones I would choose for my personal playlist. In some cases these were songs I favored when they were first released and in some cases they are ones I came to know years later. I’ve chosen 25 songs from each decade and ranked them from 1 to 25. Each decade has a jukebox to play the songs and a short narrative about the decade and my relationship to the songs.
