Hello folks,

Back in the day I could tell a country track instantly, I don't mean country and western, just country, it had a certain twang, something I couldn't put my finger on but I knew it was country. I was listening to a "country hour" on the radio the other day, I seriously wouldn't have known it was country of the presenter hadn't said "and that was blah blah riding high in the country charts at the moment". It must sounded like pop music to me, it's it me or is country getting diluted? I'm not a huge country fan, I like Little Big Church and John Prine and a few others but this new stuff is so feeble IMHO.

What you reckon?
