More informationToday's country music scene is decidedly different than in recent times. Today's mainstream country sound incorporates country instrumentation and lyrics with a very pop musicality and sensibility. Slick and polished for today's country consumer, the traditional country styles come from the alt country artists. Nashville remains the heart of country. Cowgirls are more stylish and cowboys are more often seen in baseball caps than cowboy hats.
Today's country themes are heavy on trucks, rides, beer, parties and fun and less about heartbreak and outlaws. Regardless, mainstream country is as popular as ever and consistently breaks into the top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Many current country hits are remixed for top 40 radio as a "pop mix." Elements of rap and hip hop are even sneaking into some country songs, and this has been dubbed hick-hop. The internet, youtube, streaming video, and social media have made a major impact on today's popular music landscape.
