Country music has changed over the years. Think about the olden days of Hank Williams (not III or Jr!), then go forward a few years to Johnny Cash, and then forward a little more to Waylon Jennings. Now, think about country music today. You don’t need to listen for long to know that something has changed. Many country music purists dislike the new wave of country because it sounds so similar to other styles of music. But ultimately, this is good for country music.
