乡村音乐(Country music)， 又称“乡村与西部音乐” (Country and Western)，是 当代音乐的一种风格形式。 其根源可追溯至上世纪20年 代， 起源于美国南部与阿 帕拉契山区，人们公认田纳 西州纳什维尔地区是乡村音乐的故乡，并 建有专门的乡村音乐博物馆。此音乐风格 于70年代在世界各地得以快速普及，受到 广大青年的欢迎，并由“乡村音乐”逐步 取代了“乡村与西部音乐”的称法。
乡村音乐的曲调，一般都很流畅、动 听，曲式结构也比较简单，多为歌谣体、 二部曲式或三部曲式。 美国著名的乡村歌手包括约翰· 丹佛 (John Denver)、肯尼· 罗杰斯(Kenny Rogers)、加思· 布鲁克斯(Garth Brooks)等。

Those were such happy times And not so long ago How I wondered where they’d gone But they’re back again Just like a long lost friend All the songs I loved so well.
