The best way to get over someone is to get it all out. And the best way to do that is to find a good country song that you can relate to and listen to it on repeat for 3 days straight. Okay, that was a little dramatic, but we all know that listening to relatable music can, for whatever reason, help remedy any situation. Whether you post the lyrics underneath an Instagram photo of you and your rebound, or scream out the words when you’re driving down the freeway, these songs definitely come in handy.
