Billboard Country Music ads, ctd.

Let's take another stroll through the tropes of country music via 1970 Billboard ads.

From front-porch rocking chair strummin'...


...and right neighborly professional courtesy...


...to drinking songs...

...and sad songs.

From skepticism at feminism ("You're a young girl, so understand / it's so hard to find a man / Who comes home every night to only you / You may not find true love again, so go home while you still can / And find a way to work it out with your man")...


...and the virtues of an authentic, hard past...


...to faith and redemption.
