Country western music has a long history in northwest Kansas. Whether it was listening to the Grand Ole Opry, tuning into KFDI radio, or watching Hee-Haw, people have heard many a country-western singer and many memorable tunes.

- Hey Good Lookin’
- Tennessee Waltz
- I Walk the Line
- Happy Trails to You
