Country music is one of the more popular genres in American culture and around the world. While not as popular as Rock or Pop, many country music followers are just as loyal. The genre generally focuses on topics such as family life, rural life (i.e. country life), love, loss, and more. It is these topics that allow fans to relate to the songs they regularly hear on the radio and in concert.
Pioneers of the genre include Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Hank Williams, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, and others. More popular artists include George Strait, Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, and Reba McIntire. Newer artists that have found crossover popularity with other genres and media forms include Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, and Blake Shelton.
