    If you're talking Molly Tuttle or the Petersons, the future is bright...

    Molly is a wonderful bluegrass picker. (And crosspicker.) Didn't know she went country.

    As for current "country," it's mostly snap-track and pop/rock. In the 90's I played in a "house band" for a popular Houston country radio station. I had to cover the hits and the standards. I lost heart as it all mutated into crossover. Yuk.

    I've heard some of it lately and it sounds like a cross between pop and rap, with someone with a Southern accent.

    As a consumer genre doesn't matter in the least. To me it's either good or bad.

    Maybe if I was a retailer genre would matter more as I would have to know how to package and pitch the product.

    Is that a Southern accent?

    I think that's strictly sui generis. "Nashville Pop Music Singin' Accent".

    I think if Jim Nabors was still with us, he'd be embarrassed and confused by it.

    I think Jerry Reed would be, as well.

    +

    But I still want to thank each and every player and singer, submitting songs for public consumption from their basement or whatever, instead of the stage as usual. I appreciate it.

    FWIW I like Tyler Childers as someone who might be able to carry the country banner forward for a while.

    Personally. 90s country is my favorite. Had some twang to it.

    Commercial music is music that a lot of people like, and buy, whether it's country, pop, rock, hip-hop, jazz, or classical. The music that is currently being played on country hit radio is the popular country music of the day
