There is also the fact that a lot of artists get pigeon holed as country because the Suits at the big labels can't quite fit them into other Genres, which is why we have the differant types of country these days i.e pop country (shania twain), rock country (lynyrd skynyrd), blues country (allman brothers band), western (merle haggard) etc.
Ok in their Hayday who would have classed CCR as country? yet today John Fogerty is classed as country. Lacy J dalton had her roots in Folk, she did the transition and was labelled as a country singer. However if you listen to her " last wild place " cd, IMO that would fit comfortable into a number of genres and still hold it's own.
In life, it matters not how well you dance. what does matter is that you get up and dance.
