I spend some time every day browsing the news sites to find out what's going on in Country that day. Well, today I came across an article where Brad Paisley defends some of the haters of Country Music. Why, you ask? Well... he says that he feels the genre has gotten away from some of it's traditional roots. Especially when it comes to true story telling in songs.
I can't say I agree with that completely. I think there's still plenty of great story telling in the genre and I don't know of any other genre where the songs are as or (sometimes) more important than the artists themselves. I do see his point, though. There's been quite a few changes in the genre over the years and I've heard quite a few people complain that the music today is a little too rock or pop oriented.
So what do you think? Do you think the story telling's leaving the genre or do you think there's still life there? Comment and let me know! See ya next time.
