country music isn’t a dirty word. Hell no. Country music is way more than rednecks’ hymns and politically condemnable ballads. Country music can actually be pretty harsh against all that crap. And that’s the country music we love. The one that tells stories, stories from the dirty south, stories about being on the road, about drinking away your broken heart or finding your way back home. Country music has this in common with Blues that it is a soulful protest music genre first and foremost.
