What is the problem with CM in todays day and age?
How about the commercialism? It seems that's pretty much all the labels look at and it really hurts the artists who have that unique vocal talent, those artists who write songs that make you think (Johnny Cash-Drive On) or touch the heart (Keith Whitley-Don't Close Your Eyes) or just plain make you laugh.(David Allen Coe-You Never Even Called Me by My Name)

CM is also changin, becomin a different style then the classic country. It's more crossin country with pop rock. Look at the pop rockers (Kelly Clarkston/Miley Cyrus) who are tryin country style songs.

I've been a supporter/fan/friend of a young country artist for the last three years now and he's got the talent, artistry, and writing skills of the classic country style. I think it's one of the reasons he's on such a slow progress of becomin a "big star" of country music TV/radio but has spent more time on the Grand Old Opry than any other new artist of his age. Ya'll are probably wonderin ok, what's his name already. His name is Chris Young. If you go to MySpace and search for him you'll find his page and can listen to his newest single "Gettin You Home" which has been out for six weeks and is already at #44 on the R&R charts

To me, this is what CM is about....

Off soap box....

Hank III is good country, in my opinion. Stuff on the radio is.... mediocre at best most of the times.

When G.W. Bush first ran for office, he'd figured out key catch phrases and words to toss out that were guaranteed make evangelical/conservative christians take notice. He made em think that he was speaking "their" language and they gave him their vote.

Pop country and other pop genres do the same thing. They prey upon ASPECTS of a musical style/genre/ or sound and capitalize on it.

Darius Rucker, from Hootie and The Blowfish fame, is doing country. I mean c'mon!

SOME of Hank III is country and some of it, is a crossover. He does traditional country, like his grandpa did. He has some original country stuff. And then he crosses country over with hardcore.

Some say Hank Jr. is more rock than country. Some say Garth Brooks ain't country.

Country music has many faces. Most of the ones I like, don't headline major venues.

I love country music...I find it very "down home" and honest.
