    ¡Hola hola! If you like country music, chances are you've probably picked up a few words in Español. Country music and Latino culture go together like chips and salsa. There are many reasons why a country artist would choose to sing a song with Spanish and English lyrics. For some artists, speaking Spanish is an important part of who they are. Some artists use Spanish to make a political argument while others sing in Spanish because it brings in the dinero. No matter what the reason, Spanish certainly adds a little sabor to country music. ¡Vamonos!
