WHAT IS THE PROBLEM WITH COUNTRY MUSIC?Page 2 of 18    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18)
I dislike a lot of country music just because of the level of similarity between a lot of the songs. There are exceptions to the rule ofcourse. I just enjoy music that seems a bit more original. I grew up around country music and there is definately a set of values associated with listeners as well.

The only problem i have with country is the "new" country.....Those "stars" are just in it for the money and they look about as country as a soap opera..and they all sound and look the same....That Gretchen Wilson looks and acts like a whore and she has no talent at all, but nowadays, its all in the looks, rather than talent..sad, sad....I like the old stuff: Loretta, Hank, Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline...to newer stuff from Rosanne Cash and Mary Chapin Carpenter..Back then, character and talent sold records, not how much Botox youve had and what your weight/breast size is

Pretty much what ppl said earlier..... the sound is very derivative. And being a city-slicker, I cannot relate to a lot of the narratives. Pet Shop Boys all the way!

I think it all depends on what you grew up with. Other genres and styles can belt out a good heartbreak song. And telling it like it is is good sometimes, but other times clever wordplay provides an added spark.

As it is, I shudder at the fact that all they play in my town is country, gangsta rap, and heartland rock.

I think these new country artists need to take a crash course on the roots of country and learn who their forebearers were:Leadbelly, Hank Williams, Howling Wolf, Bob Wills, Loretta Lynn, Carolyn Hester...I agree, they sound like bubblegum stars, synthezied, too pretty pop idols..They certainly are not artista dn the vast majority of them dont even write their own songs...Example:..My roomate loves Sara Edwards' song Bible Song...I had to inform her that songer songwriter Lori McKenna wrote that song, shes the true artist...When I listened to Edwards cover, I thought, ugg...way too processed..yuk

I am such a huge country music fan, and I think that's just because I was grown up on it. it's what my parents listened to, and what was played on the radio and in our house, so I just grew to love it. Personally, I think the reason why people despise it, is just because they all think it all has to do with 'rednecks' and 'hicks' and all that. But in reality, I know of only a few songs that actually could be labled that. For the person who said they couldn't understand what they're talking about in country music.. uh... have you heard the crap that the rappers put out? Talk about not understanding what they're talking about!

I used to love country music..to this day my all time fav singer ever is Clint Black. But it's changed and i don't like this country pop/ country rock thing that's going on...i liked it when it still sounded country...and i don't mean the twangy voice..anyone can do that..i just find there was more emotion and the sound was totally different.

I especially hate the ones that just drag on and are whiny. And why do country singers always have to sound like they have a hot dog in their mouth? And I hate the ones that go "Then I drove 5 hours to Tuscaloosa". What the bleepity-bleep is in Tuscaloosa that you have to travel so far for??

Well I think it's also that is not as inventive as rock music.

Well, I am another person that does not care for it, much.
The songs and drawl all sound the same, and yes they are
usually depressing songs.
The only song that I think may be a bit country that I like,
is Jesus Take The Wheel by Carrie Underwood.

I can't find one problem with country music. Don't believe that there is anyone who can't find at least one song they can relate to. Some of it is sad, some is happy, some of it is just plum crazy. But all in all it is about life.

what's the problem?.... too little country and not enough real music.


I tune in to the country music channel on cable every once in awhile. All flash, glitz and glamour. It's turned into country MTV.

It's enough to make you hurl.

Thank God, Willie still tours.

Easy, they stereotype country music to redneck ignorant trailer trash people. They think it's all about beer drinking and cheating. Some of it may be that but at least you can understand the words and you don't have to worry about foul language being every other word out and it's not violent. For the most part it's music about real life and real people, it's nothing fake nor negative.

I do not like most country music. Some of the newer female singers aren't so bad. The vast majority of country music just gets on my nerves. The only thing worse than country is rap. I am surprised someone hasn't put the two together, or have they?

Some country music is ok, like Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You" - heaps better than Witney Houston's version!!

But the monotonous type I don't go for.. Give me some variety..
