Country music is a popular American musical style that began in the rural Southern United States in the 1920s.[1] It takes its roots from Western cowboy and folk music. Country music often consists of ballads and dance tunes with generally simple forms and harmonies accompanied by mostly string instruments such as banjoes, electric and acoustic guitars, fiddles such as violins, and harmonicas.

1 I think also Country music turned into hickbilly music with the amount of things they sing about. God, Beer, Chicks, Being Lazy, Redneck things. That's what it came to be all about with Country music anymore. Whatever happened to the days of Johnny Cash? The music tries too hard to compete with pop music in general. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on January 23, 2014, 11:02 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 JayD, this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WySgNm8qH-I) pretty much confirms your statement about a lot of modern country songs being generic to be true. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on December 24, 2013, 2:21 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I should add Ray Price to the list of great country artists. R.I.P. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on December 17, 2013, 11:57 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I missed it when country sounded like country too. Wasn't just some hillbilly redneck in a semi-whining pitch going on about how to spend a day is a day in the pool having beer or some stupid stuff like that. Basically when it became Hicktry Music. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on September 22, 2013, 7:34 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 i think Country sounds a lot like pop and rock sometimes.. Toby Keith tried to rap in one of his songs, and didn't Tim McGraw do guest vocals on a rap artist's song (forgot who).. anyway, what i'm trying to say is, i miss when Country Music actually sounded like country! -- Submitted By: (stryker73) on September 6, 2013, 12:53 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
6 For some reason, a lot of country songs I've heard lately seem to want to try to be like Rap. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on September 1, 2013, 10:38 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Country has become so generic lately, you can't tell who's who since it all sounds the same, particularly the male artists who like to sing about their trucks. That's why I prefer the older acts, like Willie, Waylon, Johnny Cash, George Jones, Kenny, Dolly, and Glen Campbell. Each of these artists I listed has their own unique style and you can identify who it is the moment you hear one of their songs. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on July 1, 2012, 11:30 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Never cared for country in any form, although I do find it puzzling that it is so popular amongst my suburban friends. Probably because of the recent pop influence. -- Submitted By: (BBulaga75) on June 14, 2012, 7:18 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Simply put "twanny" guitar =/= country music by default. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on November 16, 2011, 3:26 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Kings of Leon country? LOL Since when? -- Submitted By: () on November 7, 2011, 10:19 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
11 I really wouldn't consider Kings of Leon country music at all. It's more southern rock/country rock, which I think of as more closely tied to the rock genre than country. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on November 6, 2011, 4:14 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
12 Oddly enough, in spite of living in a region virtually my whole life where it's prized, I never really got into it. Still, some classics like Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton and Merle Haggard will always rock with me because their lyrics and styles are timeless and transcend an incredible amount of the human experience! I also admit that I like some of the newer groups like Lady Antebellum and Kings of Leon. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 5, 2011, 12:32 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 I do listen to a lot of modern country music, but I do know that most of today's country is either more closely related to rock (i.e. Brad Paisley and Blake Shelton) or pop (i.e. Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, and Rascal Flatts). -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on November 3, 2011, 6:59 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
14 Oh how i miss the country music i grew up with in the 80's & 90's..where's Loretta? Where's Clint Black? Dwight Yoakum? Today's 'country' is really pop music calling itself country.. Sugarland's proof of that -- Submitted By: () on November 3, 2011, 5:09 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
