Music Monday goes country

Nate is from a small town in Indiana and didn't learn to love country music until he moved to Nashville. Adam grew up in the country music capital of the world and has loved the genre his entire life.

  • But they both think country is fantastic because people from different backgrounds and with different tastes can love the music equally.

Why it matters: In honor of this week's Country Music Awards, Nate and Adam each chose their favorite 20 country songs for this week's Music Monday playlist.

  • Nate's tastes include some country classics, but also veer toward more indie, Americana and country-rock.
  • Adam is all but verified as the world's biggest Trisha Yearwood fan, and he thinks the emotive ladies of the genre reign supreme.
  • They both unabashedly love Dolly Parton.
