    More "rapping" in country music today.

    I'm assuming most people on this board don't listen to country, but I do. Lately, a lot of country singers have been adding more hard rock and hip-hop elements to their songs. You'll hear some guys doing more of rapping than actual singing. Sometimes it sounds all right, but it usually just sounds like they're trying too hard. I'm not a huge fan of that. Florida Georgia Line does it in some of their songs.

    Hip-hop/rap and country is a blend that I'm not a huge fan of.

    Country music is dope.

    There's a lot of really deep stuff out there and I love a lot of those acoustic guitar instrumentals.

    Some country singers are like some of the genuinely great rappers out there because they stay true to themselves. That might sound kind of cheesy, but a person that stays themselves through all the fame and fortune is someone worth either listening to or knowing.

    Doesn't make me want to hear hip-hop and country come together, though. ;]

    I don't blame people for hating country when you got bitches like Taylor Swift writing songs about her newest boyfriend she broke up with.

    All that shit appeals to teeny boppers, but then you got shit like Josh Groban, Johnny Cash, Counting Crows and The Eagles, it restores your faith in the genre.

    Most new country musicians have given the genre a bad reputation. Trying to blend hip-hop with country may work in drawing in audiences who haven't heard music by some of the greats like Kenny Rogers but for most people I don't think they'd like that kind of music.

    Personally I wouldn't listen to such songs. Reason could because I listen to the golden oldies mostly so that [rapping in country music] is definitely news to me.

    I agree that country singers are true to themselves, but it's a whole different rhythm, can't say I love it.
    Cashis music videos, check them out!

    I'm not the biggest country fan but it doesn't surprise me that they're incorporating rap into some of their verses. A lot of music in the past twenty or so years have moved away from being strictly one thing or another toward being some sort of weird mixture. I don't see it as a negative though. I see it as an evolution.

    I don't even like country, but I can see the appeal. It's that radio shit you hear a lot on AM stations and it sells, which is fine. I'd rather have realistic music selling than overly-repetitive garble selling.

    I don't see where hip-hop comes into the equation. Last time I checked, rap was non-existent out in the country.... I thought it was a suburban/urban thing...

    I was wrong?

    It's not like we don't have the same thing in rap and hip hop to be fair. Hell, this was the sort of thing that older rap was all about;having a problem with someone and calling them out in song about it. Obviously this then evolved rather tragically to, 'I've got a problem with you and now I'm going to shit talk you all the time and say how I want to murder you'

    I really don't listen to country that often--can't stand it--but my sister loves it so I do hear it every once awhile. I have noticed this as well, but to me it seems like a lot of country is changing. I am thinking it is maybe because country is a genre of music that doesn't get a lot of love so these artists are trying to make their songs country, but with a rap, pop, dance edge so the song gets more exposure on the radio.

    I am not a huge fan of country, but I have heard what you are talking about, I find it odd, I wish they would just stick to the original country music, but let them tyr to mix it up,might end up better.
