Is Country Music Low Class?
Here's the premise: Country music is often condemned, criticized and looked down upon. A lot of people say they don't like country music, but maybe they haven't really listened to enough of it or are basing their opinions on what they've heard about the music from other sources.
Some of the derogatory epithets or negative descriptions of country music: Hillbilly music, backward, corny, white trashy, ignorant, barroom beer-drinkin' music, boring, stupid, old timey, trailer park muzak, farm fodder, songs sung through missing teeth, and the worst music there is. I'm sure I've missed many other terms, but you get the idea.
So what do you think?
