Country music is geographical. In Sweden, in the larger cities such as Stockholm, you hear country music sometimes and singers like Dolly Parton and such come every year and do quite well . We also have singers like Jill Johnson or Lasse Stefanz who sing country ( on tv she even hosts a show from her house in Nashville) and have done well. That is, if you are talking about typical American sounding country music. A country festival pops up now and again. As far as I know, there is not one radio station in Stockholm dedicated to country music but you find them on the net.

Dansband is a big type of music but bigger outside the larger cities. It sounds alot like country and has influences from it. Wherever this is popular, you probably would find that country music is popular.

I listened to at least a minute of every YouTube in this thread, none of them really were my thing but at least they weren't trying desperately to fit into some Nashville factory cookie-cutter idea of what style and substance they needed to comply, as if there was a producer with a checklist ticking off items "Truck...Dirt Road...Moonlight...Painted-On Jeans...check check check and check". At least Euro-Country (what I've heard here anyway) is it's own thing.

Can't speak for other parts of the world.

*edited to add: Batty's songs were American Folk Country
