Default Does a country accent make you a country singer?

I'd say absolutley not but I'm interested to get people's opinion on this.

You can easily make a Strat or Tele make a TWANG. The single coils are very responsive to how the strings are picked.

Modern country's songs have a similar theme going but just becuase you have the accent you aren't country. Reverent Horton Heat has it and they are rockabilly/psychobilly.

actaully i agree/disagree at the same time.. depends really. alot of popular country singers/bands have a very southen sound to them..when it comes to voice it matters sometimes with the sound and other times it doesn't. all depends really.

modern country is kind of poppy sounding more so when it comes to alot of the popular female country singers, even they used to have the counrty like accent, but in the music have lost it and now have more a pop sound to it.

but having a simple country accent can not just say you can be a country singer.. as much as the country voice in singing bugs me its not all about that one type of sound.. its not that simple having the accent doesn't make country music.

I prefer an accent when I listen to country simply because that is the style I'm used to, I only listen to old scool and old school influenced country. A country singer from NYC has significantly less credibility as far as I'm concerned

/\ I think thats because your idea of country music is damaged. Country music isn't born to the south, its actually very much in the vein of celtic folk music.

To me, the NYC country singers suck far less because their less influenced by the Nashville shlock thats, as Elvis Costello once said, modern country is just journey in cowboy hats.

Just because you sing about "southern values" and have an accent, a country star that does not make you.

Saying if you have a country accent than it makes you a country singer is like saying if your black than than it makes you a rapper.

Well, let me rephrase...

If you are a singer and have a country accent...
