History of Quirky Country Music Song Titles Day

Country music is an American genre that got its start in the southern parts of the US in the 1920s when it was born out of blues and folk music. And though country music certainly has its own sound, it also has its own themes about which the songs are written. While the themes might be about love, lost love and work, the genre has moved into some goofy and laughable ideas.

When Johnny Cash wrote the lyrics to “Flushed From the Bathroom of Your Heart” in 1968, it’s hard to know if The Man in Black was just being silly or if he was trying to launch a trend in country music. Since that time, country music lyrics seem to have gotten more and more ludicrous, and this day is all about celebrating this fact.

Quirky Country Music Song Titles Day was founded by Thomas and Ruth Roy of Wellcat Holidays. The day has taken hold and gotten more popular each year – just for the fun of it!
