Are there only 4 themes in country music songs?

Country music often has the stereotype of having a limited amount of themes.

So, blogger Peter Lewis  decided to take the annual billboard No.  1 country music hits from the past 50 years and tag every song according to its lyrical content.

All 50 songs, according to him, fit into one of only four categories: "It's all over," "It's not working out," "Love and devotion," or “The right way to live.”

Do you think he has a point or is country music much deeper than this?  Tell us on the WPTV Facebook page.
