When putting together his landmark documentary on country music, Ken Burns asked the people he interviewed... I think it wasn't so much what is the best country song, but rather if you could send one song into outer space to represent country music, which song would it be and why? Surprisingly to me, there was actually a consensus...

Spoiler alert: It was the second song mentioned above.
