How One Beat Is Killing Country Music [VIDEO]

Country music has been taken over by snap and click tracks, says music journalist Grady Smith; and it is doing the genre a disservice. "Keep in mind," says Smith "I like a handful of these songs, but the pervasiveness of this exact same beat is suffocating." Grady Smith says he's JUST "trying to think about country music without being a jerk," and his Grady Smith On Country YouTube series is a must-subscribe if you care about country or Americana music.

Female Performers Get Just 5% Of Country Music Consumption

'Woman Walk the Line' Is a Love Letter to Country Music Past

The fact of the matter is much of country music – both classic and contemporary – would not exist as we now know it were it not for Maybelle Carter and her work with the first family of country music, the Carter Family. An unprepossessingly talented guitarist with a keen ear for good songs, Mother Maybelle is arguably the wellspring from which all subsequent country artists have sprung.
