Without Mexico, country music might never have existed; at least not in the way we know it today.
Early honky tonk was heavily influenced by Mexican ranchera and Western swing was largely adapted from mariachi music, so without those influences coming up from across the border who knows what it might have sounded like.
It isn’t just the music either: the boots, the hats, the rodeos – a bit of it all comes from Mexico in some way.
So, it’s no surprise when country singers take a little trip south of the border to see where it all sprang from.
So whether you're in the mood for cracking open a cold one with Kenny Chesney or ruminating on the socio-economic implications of US immigration policies with Tom Russell, there's something for everyone in Holler's playlist of the Best Country Songs About Mexico.
