Sad Country Love Songs

Country Love Songs Guaranteed to Make You Cry

Aside from looking sexy in a cowboy hat, country musicians are really, really good at writing and performing songs that make you bawl your eyes out. The love songs, especially, can just rip your heart out. Bad breakups, first love, the death of a spouse, wives waiting for their soldiers to come home — it's enough to make you an emotional wreck.
