That's my favourite kind of country music, it's that good you can listen with the sound off wink.gif She pays homage to Shania Twain in that video, can't see Ms Twain ever doing anything like that, also Lady Godiva is given a nod.

Just out of curiosity, I wonder if you might consider this to be a country song. It has a banjo and lyrics that could arguably be considered in a country style or country blues maybe, and some slide guitar. What do ya say? biggrin.gif


I never really thought of it as country but I did think bluegrass or something like that. It also always remands me of One The Road Again by Canned Heat. Funny that.

Crazy that that was in the country charts imho

Try out
John Moreland (singer songwriter type)
Willy Clay band (these guys are Swedish, I'd never have guessed)
The Wild Feathers (a little more country rock)

If you want more traditional sounding country let me know


Just listening to John Moreland "When My Fever Breaks", now the opening chord picking has that country sound, there must be some order of notes that sounds "country".

Of course there's always Lightweight Louie Danvers:

There are certain licks that always bring a "country" vibe to music. E.g clean acoustic guitar doing chord then note chord, octave of that note, repeat. Just as in rock there certain bits that just scream "country". Jazz has always been fairly niche so even as broad as the genre is, there are many purists who are fans that keep it from going toooo far afield. Same is true in Black Metal oddly, which began as a genre against genre, and has become one of the most restrictive genres in music complete with face pain requirements. There are exceptions to every rule or we wouldn't have any rules, of course.

My folks were way in to country music. Mostly vocal stuff like the Judds and such. Country is pretty open to crossover influence as long as the folks buying tix/music/listening to country radio are happy with it, it will drift a given way. There are still "traditional" country artists, which seems odd that we have to qualify Country music with the label of "Traditional" since it represented a traditional folk form of music for soooo long. Things change smile.gif THen again RAP is also a form of Folk Music, just Urban instead of rural. It does attract a rural audience as most rap/hip hop music is purhcased by white kids, not black kids simply due to there being so many more white kids in our country as a function of population.
