 Country Music Editorial - The different sounds of country music, June 2005
Country music certainly has gone through a number of phases in the past decade or so.
All of a sudden, the sound purveyed by Travis Tritt (though he was far more country than the current crop) and Montgomery Gentry (more rock than country) seems to have gone full tilt towards southern rock.
The point is that what used to be country not too long ago has far expanded for better or worse well beyond its roots.

But erase the cliches and you'll quickly realize that country covers a surprisingly large amount of territory--everything from Hank Williams' honky tonk to the western swing of Bob Wills and Milton Brown; from the slick pop stylings of Faith Hill to the melancholy acoustic songs of Gillian Welch.
These days country's got rock, soul, maybe a touch of jazz, and plenty of the blues, but when you're pining for a lost love or yearning for the smell of your mama's cooking, there's nothing like a good country song to bring you back home.
