In honor of Country Music Month, we asked a panel of country music experts from across the country, “what is the best country song you’ve ever heard?” This installment is from Jeff West. Jeff is on-air nights on KMLE in Phoenix. Here now, is the best country song Jeff West has ever heard.
The best country song I’ve ever heard is [lastfm]Ronnie Milsap[/lastfm]‘s “It Was Almost Like A Song.” The first time I ever heard it, I was 10 or 11 years old, and it reminds me of my mom.
My mom used to love Ronnie Milsap and play his records all of the time on the weekends. To this day, it is still one of the saddest songs I’ve ever heard. You can hear and feel the pain and sadness in his voice. The last note he sings is amazing and you can’t help but feel for him when you hear it.
