I have actually heard a lot of people say that they do not like country music because of the way it's presented, especially that it's mainly about cheating and drinking stereotypically speaking.. there are also a lot of people who do not like the new country music sound that has come out over the past couple of years because a lot of people complain that it sounds more like hip hop or pop then in the actual country style. however, both are sort of true. tell me country music is just like any other Genre of music such as rock jazz pop rap hip hop etc... There is good and bad. The good can be almost poetic. Bluesy, and folk like in nature, Plus some songs can have good beats. however the one thing I do not like about some country songs is that some songs are racist and sexist in nature but just like any other genre of music that can be the norm. So what is your opinion of Country Music?
I personally love country music. The lyrics are real and genuine. And, there are so many songs not about cheating or drinking. Try listening to The Band Perry, Sam Hunt, Dustin Lynch and a few others...
They each have quite a few songs, not about cheating or drinking, albeit a few that are... :)
I like old country music like Hank Williams or even the semi-modern stuff like Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson, but I absolutely detest modern "country" music. There is nothing "country" about it at all except for a ridiculously absurd accent. It is basically just 1990s hip hop except with White people in the videos.
My truck is broke and my dog has died I like all sorts of food – especially fried my guy he done left me said I wasn"t much fun feeling so bad wish I had a gun. When I hear country music it makes me cry to think them making millions in Nashville Tennessee just burping out crap a real hillbilly.
I'm from Texas, home of country music. I hear it everywhere I go and I fucking hate country music. Only exception is Johnny Cash. To me Nickelback and Shinedown sound a bit country with heavy metal so Im okay with their music. Country music is terrible and annoying as hell.
I like very little country music, more like the bluesy kind you were talking about i suppose, used to be into pop country when i was a little kid though, now i really only listen to townes van zandt, and, well this isn't really country (no lyrics) but john fahey
Because I was bombarded by it growing up, and the mentality of the people I personally knew that listened to it. It makes me think of ignorance and stupidity and ultimately irritates the hell out of me.
