Is Country Music Country Anymore?

Question by madderthanthehatter: Is Country Music Country Anymore?
I’ve wondered what country music fans think about today’s country music. To me it sounds just like rock and there’s not much to tell the difference from rock. I’m not much of a country music fan but when I do turn on the country music radio in the car, every year it seems to be more and more city and less and less country. What do country music fans think?

Best answer:

Answer by Dave M
As a country music singer, i feel like you are a bit right. There seems to be a closer bond than ever between Country and rock. But the one thing that always stays the same is the feeling of the music. The attitude and soul behind the song. You will hear about true love and affection between a man and his women in country before you hear it in a rock song. I love rock and country and I sing both, but I always land closer to country because it is where my heart is.

    Travis Tritt says it all in his song, Country Ain’t Country.

    To Lisa H, do you mean me? If you do, I just used Travis’ song title since it reflected how I feel about new country music. I hate new country and like the neo-traditionalists and the older singers of country music. Give me Alabama over Rascal Flatts, give me George Jones over Jason Aldean, and give me Hank, Sr. over Keith Urban ANYDAY.

    Mainstream country music is a joke. There is no country left on the airwaves anymore. Pop music has taken over and people have been brainwashed into believing acts like carrie underwood are country. People are even buying into jewel, snoop dogg, and jessica simpson as country. The new listeners of today’s “country” music bash the older country *see comment above* yet without the founding members of country music there would be no country music. I have shunned the local radio stations and turned to sirius for the good old time country music. There are also a lot of great alt-country bands such as hank williams III, j.b. beverley & the wayward drifters, wayne hancock, and dale watson (many more) They get no air-time on corporate country stations because “they are too country for country”. I hate what a joke country music has become, I hate when people claim to love country music and yet have never heard one song by Hank Williams. Country music is a part of me, and part of me dies inside when I see what’s happening to the legends.
    Here are some lyrics and youtube videos that describe my feelings best:
