The problem with all of you saying that there's no good modern country is that you're searching in all the wrongs places. This would be like saying that there is no more good modern rock because when you listen to your local rock station all you hear is Nickelback.

"Country" and "Western" are really two different types of music though. They get lumped together due to certain similarities, while ignoring the obvious differences, both musically and culturally.

Country music is the modern form of rural Appalachian folk music (American southeast mostly, such as Tennessee, the Carolinas Virginia etc) while Western music is the traditional folk music of the American west (the southwest such as Texas and Oklahoma as well as the Midwest).

Western music hasn't been particularly popular since the Western swing of the 30s and early 40's though, but there are still some bands that play cowboy music and there are also some murder swing bands that are around (I've never listened to much of it, though it's analogous to cowpunk or psychobilly).

While I'm at it, I should also mention that "old time" music is the traditional Appalachian string band folk music and bluegrass is a modern form of string band music that combined old time music with jazz, blues, ragtime, and several other types of music.

What. The vocals are one of the best parts of bluegrass.

You can't honestly name a rock band with the exception of the odd prog rock band that is as harmonically lush as the average RnB act.

I'd like country if it wasn't for that idiotic twang they all sing with.

Porcupine Tree/Steven Wilson, Karnivool, The Mars Volta, Thrice, and I could go on.

And I suppose if you venture enough into even more metal-ish territory there's a plethora of other "harmonically lush" bands.

Granted, this is hard rock but has huge country influences. It's modern, and awesome.

Half of those I don't agree with and the other half are prog rock.

I feel like you probably aren't particularly familiar with RnB either.

Prog rock, alt rock, stoner rock, acid rock, eh. It's all rock brah For the matter I thought addressing the genre as a whole made more sense. But anyway I'm not going to argue personal taste with you eheh.

I don't pay much attention to this sort of debate anymore, since I'm finding it increasingly hard to judge genres instead of the musicians individually (bar a few). Which kind of was my point - there's good music mostly everywhere, whether you like it or you don't.

There is some country out there that is actually really good.

Unfortunately, like good pop, good rap, and good electronica, you'll never hear it on the radio.

You're just listening to the wrong radio then. Try listening to college radio.

The album is from 2013. That's pretty modern if you ask me.

As someone who is from small town US, the way of life described in country music is dying. Because of modern TV and the WWW, the world has become smaller, and more youth in rural areas are exposed to other lifestyles and music that they would have never heard of in the "golden days", so to speak. It's definitely a smaller scene unless your band sounds like Tim McGraw or Carrie Underwood.

Country pop is ****ing horrible. Is it just me or does every song have the same bass drum beat/tempo, and same exact steel guitar rise sound.

I remember I was listening to a rock station near here and some country singer chick came on for a ad and was talking about how they're where being stereotyped that country is all about "mamma and trucks" and how country has deep meaning. I think what they consider deep is the handful of love songs and some depressing suicide songs I heard which are pretty much done to death.
