Once in a while I get asked if I listen to anything other than Hip-Hop. While my answer is always a genuine, “Yeah, I listen to everything,” part of me knows I’m lying. I never listen to Country music. Ever. Not because I can’t appreciate the twang, or don’t buy the honkytonk style, either. There’s just a crapload of other music to keep up with – both new and old, spanning multiple genres – and I simply choose to take my spins elsewhere.
However, from what people tell me, there’s quality in Country. Some friends even say certain songs have similar structures to rap – which seems plausible, considering both burgeoning genres are reliant on catchy rhythms and everyman concepts.
Do you listen Country music? What am I missing?
