I can't figure this one out. For years I've heard people say how they HATE country and how awful it is. People say they hate hip-hop/pop because it takes no skill, it's all about money/bitches/cars etc etc. Okay, I understand that, even though I disagree and think it's closeminded. But I've never heard why exactly people hate country. Is this another one of those popular things to do, to hate something because it's "cool" to do so, without ever listening to the genre?
Myself, I love country, but I was also raised on it as a child so I guess I'm slightly biased towards it. Even so, I think most country songs (not the bullshit "country pop" on the radio like Taylor Swift) are great because they tell a story, involving you with the emotion of the song. With the exception of pop country, I've heard very few bad songs. Here's a great example of a good country song
You can't tell me that is shit music. If you don't like country yourself, explain why!
