What is it with you americans and country?

13.05.2005 - 23:23 / filled under default

I'll have to extend the quote I read from Simon Cowell on American Idol: "I don't understand country, but then again, I'm European".

Why country? Well, I am listening to a country version of "Hey Joe" through Coverville's Jimi Hendrix edition at the moment - and this accordeon ...

Okay, he just says it is cajan bluegrass. To me, this is just country *brrrr* :)

  1. What is it with you americans and country?

  2. What is really strange is that the wretched country music genre is so popular in England as well, and has been since the fifties. I love Patsy and Hank and Merle and Doc and all, but current country music is just warmed over butt-rock from the seventies and eighties...

  3. England - no that is not really like Europe ;)))
