Can someone tell me the difference between modern country and southern rock? I'm not seeing much difference, now old country is a different story I can see it being alot different but to me this new so called country is just southern rock. does anyone else think they sound the same? If they are different in any way besides the vocal's please school me.

I'm no genius on either but I suspect the southern rock genre is predominately rock coming from the southern states whereas modern country is a not a geographical-specific genre? I think it's a faux-genre much like Grunge is specifically related to Seattle during 1990s but no more.

Southern Rock had balls Toby Keith and Big and Rich does not


AND to get on country radio you HAVE to be coming out of Nashville and play their shitastic game like getting suits to write you really corny songs


Southern Rock also has soul it's an real honest music it's not a homogenized formula made to appeal to any demographic it's just music because ya love music

Lol ya Toby Keith sucks, I live in Oklahoma and people here love him for some ****ing reason that I cannot comprehend, but anyway Southern Rock besides vocal's still seem to sound real close to modern country which really is the only reason I've started to take interest in country

modern country is just bubble gum pop music.

southern rock is like charlie daniels, lynryd skynryd type stuff, think 1970s

that said both are horrible compared to traditional country music in my mind.

go see charlie in concert and then try and call him horrible again. Charlie daniels is a better musician than hendrix and lennon combined anyday.
I didn't think we would ever make enough money to pay rent by playing music.

That's the dumbest thing I've ever read on this site hands down. What in god's name makes you say that?

southern rock had a blues influence, very little pop influence, generally used a typical blues-rock line-up rather than a country / folk line-up (assuming there are more modern country artists who utilize the banjo and fiddle than just taylor swift) etc etc.
