I believe there's room for everybody in the music world cause if it's pleasing to the ears then it's good music. However, I think that country music has pushed the envelope as far as it can to hang on to using the name country music loosely for the powers to be that make the rules on what is considered country music. Let's face it,, the bottom line is it all boils down to power and money and Real Country Music has gotten lost in the mix. BUT, All is not lost ! I've recently heard a guy in Nashville that is making quite a splash with his NEW Authentic Country Music ! Check out the country music video by Tim Culpepper called Ghost as well as the NEW Single on I-Tunes and upcoming title to his Album of the same name, called Pourin Whiskey On Pain ! Talk about Honkytonkin' Country Music ! It's refreshing and reminiscent of a time in country music when the most important things in country music that were UP were the Fiddles, Steel, and album sales !
