About This Quiz

So you think you know your country classics. We'll see if you're the real deal or simply a country wannabe when you answer the questions on this quiz. Most people can join into the chorus of any country song. But do you know the first few bars of your favorite songs, or recognize the music before the lyrics even start? That's what this quiz will find out. It also lets you look at the lyrics, plain and simple. You'll truly get the impact of great lyrics -- all the beauty, description and attitude that can be conveyed in just one line. Take the first line of Dierks Bently's, "What was I thinking": "Becky was a beauty from south Alabama / Her daddy had a heart like a nine-pound hammer". If that doesn't set up a story, what does?  Or Gretchen Wilson's opening line for "Here for the Party": "Well I'm an eight ball-shooting, double-fisted-drinking son of a gun". Yep, you know those words are going to be accompanied by a hard-rockin' beat. So what are you waiting for? Start tapping your foot, and wigglin' your booty to some of these classic country songs. Of course, you might shed a tear or two with lyrics like, "he stopped loving her today". So keep a box of tissues near, as well as a bottle of beer. Hey, that's a great country lyric! Take the quiz now.
