Country music can be awesome or awful (just like any genre).
This video talks about the things awesome songs tend to have.
And what makes country music great as a form of music.
I chose country music when I was a kid. I liked it. I liked how it sounded and the things people would sing about.
Then I learned guitar. I wanted to be able to express myself through country music.
In high school I played in a bar band and got to perform country music.
I moved to Nashville for college and studied how country music works.
Toward the end of college I started touring with country artists and playing sessions and writing songs, getting to experience country music from the inside.
I've had the opportunity to examine country music under a microscope for many, many hours, and I made this video because I wish a video like this had existed when I started out.
Hopefully it gives you a deeper appreciation of the music form I love so much.
Hopefully it helps you make good music..
