I’ve heard this many times before, from friends who have such a huge dislike for country music, “all country songs are the same.” You can find numerous articles, blogs, posts, tweets, and videos supporting this opinion, and little to none defending it.
CMT posted an article, “Proof That All Country Music Sounds the Same,” where they explore the experiment of a YouTube user, Gregory Todd. Gregory Todd is a songwriter who was having a difficult time getting his songs into the country music line up. His experiment was done in the hopes of finding the “narrow definition” of what producers call country.
People may feel that this video is perfect for putting country in its place, because “it’s all the same,” but I feel like it actually makes the music more intriguing. The fact that the video shows you the music… well, just watch and see what you think.
I think country music is doing just fine.
