People have different preferences, for one thing. Classic Simon and Garfunkel can sound boring to younger minds, while Hip-Hop or Electronica from the likes of Kanye West to Skrillex can sound mindless to older folks. I think people see "Country" as meaning "Hillbilly" music, while it's quite the contrary. Sure we have the pop-country Taylor Swift or Lady Antebellum releasing the same unorignial songs and recycling the same messages. And then there's the Rascal Flatts or Garth Brooks kind, so country it's become plain and mediocre. This is what the media has made country, something we can hate on. But if you look up the country likes of Alan Jackson or Geroge Strait, from long long ago, it paints a completely different picture. I have no problem listening to Folk to Dubstep, albeit a few minor genres I'll stay away from, but keeping an open mind when listening to a song dosen't hurt.

I think your thesis is flawed because country music would have to go away in order for it to "come back." Country music has ALWAYS been popular. The first million-selling country song was in 1925; and, to give you some indication of just how popular the song was, one-third of the U.S. population (based on the population and the number of records sold) owned a copy of that song -- "The Prisoner's Song" by Vernon Dalhart. That's from a time when both phonographs and records were new, novel items. Country music was so popular that during World War II Japanese kamakaze pilots would taunt soldiers with cries of, "To hell with Roosevelt! To hell with Babe Ruth! To hell with Roy Acuff!" as they attacked. Even the ENEMY knew who Roy Acuff was! Country singer Al Dexter was so popular in 1943 that his success caused Billboard magazine to inaugurate a new chart: the "Hillbilly and Western" chart, which debuted in January 1944 (and Dexter songs were the first two #1 songs). Eddy Arnold, Red Foley, Johnny Cash, the Wilburn Brothers, Porter Wagoner, Bill Anderson, Jimmy Dean, and Ernest Tubb are but a few of the country stars who had weekly syndicated or network television shows between the 1950s and early 1970s. The number of rock stars who had shows during that time: ONE -- the Monkees. At a time when Capitol Records had both the Beatles and the Beach Boys, the biggest-selling act on Capitol in the U.S. during the 1960s was a country singer: Buck Owens. In order for you to prove that country "came back," you first must prove that it went away.

Good question! I have always enjoyed country music. It's fun to listen to, and many songs are very romantic. It's probably more appreciated in certain parts of the country more than others, like here in South Carolina. Although, it is very much appreciated in other countries as well. Bottom line -- you either like it or you don't -don't even need a reason. It's just the way the world is. Some people like ketchup on their hamburger, others prefer mustard, or mayo. ;o)

I just grew out of it. I grew up listening to country and loved it all through my teen years. Then when I was about 20 I discovered classic rock, and now it's the ONLY music I listen to. It's not that I dislike country music now, I just don't ever feel like listening to it. I think people who say they hate it have never really listened to it or feel like it is 'hick' music.

I LOVE country music, but a lot of my friends don't. When I ask them why, many of them tend to say it's because of the "twang" in the singers voice. One of my other friends said it's because they only sing about beer. I personally think their CRAZY. Country is the best.

I like it because it's pure, and it's always got me in a good mood, but maybe that's just me, because its what I was raised listening to. Instead of rapping about "hoes, fur boots, and dranks" Country is all about fun, and living the American life. I LOVE COUNTRY MUSIC! (:

1. four quarter notes equal one whole note 2. three eighth notes equal one dotted quarter note 3. eight sixteenth notes equal one half note 4. twelve eighth notes equal one dotted whole note 5. three half notes equal one dotted whole note 6. two whole notes equal eight quarter notes 7. six sixteenth notes equal one dotted quarter note 8. four eighth notes equal one half note 9. three quarter notes equal six eighth notes Basically a dotted note is 1.5 times the note without the dot. A whole note is two half notes. A half note is two quarter notes. A quarter note is two eighth notes and an eighth note is two sixteenth notes. The meter is not needed to solve these problems. No matter what your meter is, there will always be two eighths notes to a quarter note. It doesn't matter if you're in 6/8 or 4/4 or 12/8 or 3/4 or 2/2 meter.
