They are either happy or sad lyrics and when read aloud they evoke the same emotion as when music is added.
Country singers generally write music that their fans want to hear and not on what they themselves enjoy.
They always relate to their fans and that is why country music has such a loyal following.
Many country singers did not write their own songs in the past and concentrated mainly on just singing.
There were a few exceptions, notably, Merle Haggard, Dolly Parton & Hank Williams, although over the past few decades many more country singers have followed their lead and chose to write their own songs with great success.
