Country Music

Soapbox rant....If you're not a fan of country music, you can probably save yourself a few minutes and move on...

I've listened to country music all my life, and even in the last 20-25 years, country music has really changed. Now music has to change, or we'd be listening to the same song over and over again, so I have no complaints about that.

That being said, The last 10 years or so has really been the death of real country music. Again, the artists that have come along over the last 10 years are talented, they make good music for those who like it and should be allowed to make what they want. I'm not putting a blanket over all musicians of the last 10 years, there are quite a few that are good, and some that used to be good, but the politics of this modern country music has changed them for the worse. Most however, shouldn't be in the country music category in my books. Come up with a new category for them, or put them in the category they are really in, pop or rock.

I've heard of musicians being turned away from country labels for being "too country"...what does that mean? In my opinion, its just there way of controlling what we can listen to, and what will sell. Some of those people may be great country musicians, and may sell quite a few albums, but are never given the chance to even try.

If we could separate the different types of music more, it would give the true blue country artists both old and young a chance to put out there music. The others that are making music that isn't really country can still make music, and still sell music, but in a different category.

Its gotten to the point where I can't even listen to country radio anymore cause so much of is crap in my opinion.

Let the George Straits, Alan Jacksons, Easton Corbins, Dean Brodys, Ashton Shepards, Jamey Johnsons, Josh Turners, and hundreds of others have the Country category, and move the others where they belong. Maybe some of the newer artists of the last 10 years that used to make good albums would move to where they really want to be, and maybe some would stay where they are. And, stop turning away what may be talented artists for being "to country"

Millions of people grew up listening to country music, and it made them who they are. I don't think people of the young generation now would be all that proud to look back in 20 years and say the same thing...

Ok, off my soapbox

I'm 22 myself, I agree with the mp3 player. I've got one in the truck to keep the good tunes rolling.

I agree...most new country sucks. But IMO, one new guy that's got the right idea with an authentic old country feel in his music is Chris Young. The guys got a helluva voice and is very talented. Maybe it's cuz he idoled Keith Whitley and Buck Owens...anyone else agree this Chris Young kid is one of the best today?

Yeah, hes on the list. His cover of Rainy Night in Georgia is a great one.

When I heard his first single, the one he did from Nashville star, I wasn't a huge fan, but his first album as a whole was great and so are his later ones.
