Many of the country songs that were featured previously here on Country Thang Daily centered on a sad or heart-breaking theme. Well, lamentations about a lost lover is a popular subject in country music. Although this music genre couldn’t go away from such theme, country music isn’t all about heartaches and pains. To cite an example, here is a song called “99.9% Sure (I’ve Never Been Here Before)”. Recorded by American country music artist Brian McComas, this song manifests an extremely happy vibe. That’s apparently because the song portrays a narrator who is madly in love. Or more precisely, the man experiences being so much loved by someone that he can’t contain his happiness. The following stanza said it so.
Oh, I’ve never been here before
I’ve never been loved like this
Never been tumblin’, stumblin’ over the words that get tangled inside of me
I’ve never been moved this way
Nobody’s ever made me say
I’m 99.9% sure I’ve never been here before
