Today is a day for country music lovers all over the world to unite, so brandish your banjos and strum your steel guitars because It’s International Country Music Day! This unofficial holiday was created in 2003 as a way to bring together musicians and fans of the popular music genre around the world. We love our country music so much in the USA that we have two country music days. We also celebrate National Country Music Day on July 4. Why? We're are not really sure... but any excuse to celebrate! Originating in the southern United States during the 1920s, Country music grew out of folk music brought to America by European immigrants. It took on a very distinct American spin when it came to the song lyrics. Singers and musicians swapped lyrics about love and romance for songs detailing the humdrum of daily life for an ordinary working-class person. Country music is one of the most popular and recognisable types of music to date around the world. International Country Music Day was established in the 1950s and is held each year on September 17th, to commemorate the birth of Hank Williams, one of the most influential country music artists of the 20th century. On this special day country music festivals are held around the world. Lovers of country music gather to listen to music acts whilst partaking in dancing, drinking and some good southern food!. This vibrant event can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Embrace the occasion and join the fun of International Country Music Day by getting into the spirit. Make sure to wear denim, gingham and, of course, a pair of cowboy boots and a cowboy hat. EverythingBrandedUSA is getting into the country spirit with these promotional products!
