Anonny Mouse Is folk music selling out? (92* d) RE: Is folk music selling out? 13 Apr 06


'Course it's kinda gettin' tough to have a "folk music hit" these days, as other than a few select markets and stations, the vast majority of AM/FM radio is playing the same cruddy songs in never-ending repetition. Maybe sattelite radio is gonna be where it's "at" in a coupla years.

As to country, t'aint nothin' like it was when I grew up with the likes of Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, Buck Owens and more than a few "yodeler" types. Country nowadays is a smooth, beat-driven, homogenized pop sounding bit with so-called C/W artists all over pop music too-like Shania Twain, Faith Hill, Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, etc. etc.
