Exhibit A.

Well. ^ This was a surprise. I had no idea Country Rap existed until Necromancer and you started talking about it.

Unlike the OP from years ago, I don't think all country music is horrible, but I don't fancy many country songs, probably because the music often seems to be stuck in the past and not very innovative, and the lyrics often seem almost awkwardly emotional (when love songs) or simplistic (when about any topic).

I am particularly repelled by the way country music seems to be about appearances (the hat, the jeans, etc. etc.) and twangy accents that to my ears sound contrived. If someone tries to make her voice sound more "country" to sing a country song, then I feel like I'm listening to Disneyland's Country Bears Jamboree, and the singers seem to lack depth, much like Jamboree mechanical bears:

I think I've sat through this show twice in real life. Automated bears creep me out. :/



But as a child I loved John Denver's "Country Roads," so I know there is a little country in me. Country music can make life seem simple, straightforward, and joyous, and sometimes I like that buoyancy.

Default Why I like Country Music

Being a musician in my mid 50"s that has been playing professionally since i was 15.(getting paid to play,not garage bands) i have played most every style of music.There is not one style of music that I can not find something I really like, or, on the other hand, a lot, i really don't like. I am currently playing in a country band and though i haven't played in one since the early 70"s, i am impressed with all the styles of music that are intertwined in the current country music that is being done now.there is rap, there is rock, there is blues, there is bluegrass. there is jazz, pretty much you name it, its there. I guess what i am trying to say that if you keep a closed mind and hear a song or 2 from a certain style and think it totally blows, that doesn't mean that the whole style does.Keep a open mind and you will learn so much more and you will be surprised the things you will pick up from every style that will make you a more complete and better musician.

...because of its musical composition, itís the kind of music that is good in the ear; neither noisy nor lousy.
