I love some old country, some Hank Williams or Johnny Cash, maybe Patsy Cline. Then there are goddesses like Dolly Parton or Reba McEntire. I also dig Shania Twain's earlier stuff and anything from the Dixie Chicks. And some songs from the 90s I still love for nostalgia are Blue, by Leann Rimes and Strawberry Wine from Deana Carter. Other than that, I mostly listen to some classic rock (especially Queen or Pink Floyd), pop music, black metal, crust punk, and powerviolence/hardcore. I used to be into ska and more mainstream punk in the late 90s and early 2000s, but I find most of that stuff kind of boring now.

I feel so awkward commenting on old videos, but the algorithm though 🤷‍♀️ As a child I had a love for ALL music because that's what I was exposed to by my parents. Through my teens I strayed away from country & pop music, and I got really into various "rock" genres I guess you would call them lol. I didn't like country again until about 4ish years ago, at 25 haha. It grew on me. I used to be that person who said if you put country on in the car imma tuck and roll out of there 😅 To be honest, I got into country because I met someone that I fell for hard and fast and he loves country. I knew it would never work if I couldn't stomach his music at all. Imagine long road trips with music that makes you want to die 😬😅 Most mainstream country does have more a pop feel these days though(I think), so I think that's what makes them more palatable for me. Also, I never lost my love for Shania Twain 🤫

If we are talking country mixing in rap. Try listening to some yellawolf. Maybee listen to his album ghetto Cowboy. If you ask me, that album is worth an album of the year nomination. His song "you and me" is maybee one of the songs in the latest 10 years. My opinion

I only like 2 country songs: Mamas broken heart (the chorus man...the chorus. Plus she has the heart of a metal head) Knee Deep (it makes me think of my family and how they’d play this during summer at the lake. I can taste the popsicles when I hear it) Past that my ears bleed when I hear country

honestly, for a hit country person, she did decently, but with sam hunt, that's not a good song, the one that I taught was the best was "hard to forget", because that showed his style more than this song. and was better in general.

I actually rarely listen to pop music just because pop music sounds repetitive, boring and way to digitalized. A lot of pop melodies, to me, are basically just 3 - 4 notes repeating constantly. You can sing to them just because they are made of 3 notes or you can't sing to them because there is so much digital mumbo jumbo that you don't know what the melody is.

So converting Country to pop is a good way to make it interesting? I’m sure Roomie knows more than most about “modern music” but I think there is only one genre currently in modern music and that is “Mainstream” genres don’t exist due to this philosophy and everything is being blurred and mushed together to make music seem as if it came off an assembly line.

These are terrible country examples. Do Chris Stapleton without JT. Check out Cody Johnson, Cindy Jinks, Jamie Johnson, and John Paris’s Borrowed Time is WAY BETTER. Mainstream country is not “country” its pop. And if you go for lyrics In Color by Jamie Johnson is amazing same with Borrowed Time.

I am half way through the video at this point. But i REALLY REALLY hope that they included something like Craig Morgan, something with that early to mid 2000's "old country" style of lyrics that was still kinda up beat. Its what got me really into country and I havent left since. He might be my favorite artist at this point now that I think of it. People like Garth who are all time greats are amazing at what they do and are considered all time greats for a reason but there is that place for Craig and Darrly Worley, Tracy Lawrence, Rodney Atkins, Joe Diffy * I know this one is also older but same sound*, Justin More... I truly believe with how big Country is and how wide of variations people make of the genre that there is a artist that ANYONE would like.
MuriKakari 27 päivää sitten
If we're keeping it modern, Walker Hayes, Maren Morris, Eric Church, Yes- Chris Stapleton, Carrie, Miranda, pull out Girl in a Country Song by Maddie and Tae, a little older but he might appreciate the lyrics, Little Big Town- use BOONDOCKS! dammit. The beat gets people. Church Bells was okay, but use the official music videos where possible. Country is about telling stories. The videos really make that clear. Thomas Rhett or Brothers Osbourne for the last. Use Miss Me More for Kelsea! Also Caylee Hammack. Hey look, my list has gender parity and that wasn't hard at all. Pretty sure she was listening with her eyes.

The best country songs have a story and a message like "Stand" by Rascal Flatts, "So Small" by Carrie Underwood, "I'm Gonna Love You Through It" by Martina Mcbride and "Drive" by Alan Jackson. Country music is also one of the biggest supporters of military personnel and veterans.

"Recent years" country isn't really country. Notice that she says cross genre appeal, because country has become so homogenized with pop, and other music. You even mention all there intertwined songs. Jr. Brown said it best, the audience isn't there anymore. The old school country just dore not exist in a big way anymore. That Stapelton song is soul/gospel vibe. Ray Charles says you're welcome. I would bet that this supposed expert wouldn't be a fan of traditional country music. Give her some Bill monroe, Jr Brown, Hank Williams, bet she'd srunch her nose at it. Her premise is wrong, true country music is an under ground thing these days, so how can you try and convince someone to be a fan of a kind of music that you give no examples of. A label can be just a label, and "country" music is mislabeled. Just because they have instrumentation that is considered "country" does not make it country. The Beatles used a sitar in some of their music, does that make it indian music? Because at the time it was labeled Rock/pop music.

There is a criminally underrated band called Murder by Death that NO OTHER CHANNEL has reacted to. I'm embarrassed for mankind to even be saying that. You've GOT to check them out. I might suggest Ramblin, Brother or Straight at the Sun to start off. Better country than what was on display here (except for maybe Tennessee Whiskey) and they aren't even country strictly speaking.

Yeah, I believe this chick works at iheartradio. The media conglomerate almost single handedly responsible for making radio the most boring monotonous bull shit ever. All of those picks save for Chris stapleton were awful, man. I didn't even make it all the way through. Stopped at keith urban. Didn't even pick a good keith urban song. Like 15 years ago he made some ok music but just pick a damn genre dude. Either go full pop or full country and embrace it. Can't stand that wishy-washy bs. Anyway, terrible, terrible picks to represent country music.

Country is one of those genres that's legitimately gotten worse throughout the years. Especially pre-9/11 it was generally pretty good, but since then it's just become a hyper-nationalistic genre with little depth beyond that (at least the popular stuff).

Nooooo .... Jon Pardi song is not country, listen for the snaps / claps. It's literally country's cheapest take on making songs more pop. It is nice to have some good songs ppl can sing along to but it shouldn't be every other song and this is not about the brocountry thing, this is a far far movement towards pop. The worse part is that pop mixes snaps / claps with other hi hits and snares on the 2s and 4s and has some drops. Country is making way to many songs with just a guy singing to lyrics with a snap / clap track. It works for a something like Lady A Champagne Night that is meant to be that fun party carefree song but listen to the 'traditional' country guys doing it now. Once you hear it, you can't unhear it. when is 4 out of 10 liking something though lol?

Some of my favorite country singers as of this time are Tyler Childers, Kacey Musgraves, Colter Wall, etc. (In no particular order) you should also give them a listen :)
