A genre of music that used to be good until it all started sounding the same. After Garth Brooks came into the fold, there were really obcessed country fans and the selling out in country became more common. Nowadays country music is full of acts trying to sound a lot like each other and many artists do not have their individuality, but many did not have that from the start of the genre. Once Waylon Jennings demanded that he would play his own songs like it or not, individual began to increase in the genre. The creativity of the country singer or band is denied when they are not allowed to be creative. Ever since maybe ten years ago or even earlier many acts have been copying each other. Individuality has been more seen in some Alan Jackson, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Bocephus, Eric Church, Brad Paisley, and in the songs of a few other country acts. However Rock, Alternative, Punk, and Metal, and Metalcore ( the one with probably the most freedom of expression and by far the most lyrically deep the majority of the time are the best). However the legacy of country music is being ruined by an attempt to commercialize like pop artists is hurting the genre of country music when they try to be all hip hop and sing about a woman's booty or follow the same formula of every other band in country or rock music. These rock bands they seek to sometimes emulate are southern rock bands, Nickelback, 3 Dooors Down, and Hinder. Honestly, country music is so far on the decline that it has to the potential to turn worse than the pop/dance and techno genres.
Nashville is selling out because country music all of a sudden became about women's butt and copying anyone in the genre who has been getting hit singles.
