What are your thoughts?
Well this sounds like a question that was posed on one of the Amazon sites . For me I prefer the music of the fifties and early sixties ,along with western swing and honky tonk of the forties and fifties .The modern stuff seems too pop for my liking ,perhaps we have Garth Brooks to blame for that . Still a lot of folks did like him and he sold a shed load of records . It's horses for courses I suppose . I am not averse indeed I do like the countrypoliton or Nashville sound of the 60s ,this maybe helped to sell country music to people who did not particularly like country . Patsy ,Tammy ,Hank Locklin etc bought country into the mainstream and were followed on by artists such as Ronnie Milsap who did not rely so much on pedal steel but more on sweeping strings ,still with a country edge .
I love singers like Hank Williams etc but lets face it records such as he produced would not be that commercial today so perhaps we just have to live in the past and with what we have got ,to enjoy our own brand or style of country music

For me it has turned more into pop than it is country. I feel like now it is all fast pace happy songs that have hints of country music, I would really like to see some slower songs that have that 80s and 90s feel. I have seen a few artists that are starting to bring that older feel back into the genera.

Orville Peck and Chris Stapleton slap for one. I’m glad the bro-country/hick hop phase is less ubiquitous now than it was a few years back.

I'll check that dictionary, but in the meantime I'm impressed - as is everyone else in the world - by your eloquence, obvious accomplishments and success, and the evidence of your blazingly high intelligence.
