I already told you, it's pop. with cowboy hats and pooka shells.
You claim to be this music expert (btw you have no idea who I am or who I know) and still can't tell me what is country music. So let me come up with TheDoc's definition of country music: "whatever I say it is."
What are you going to come up with next? Alan Jackson not country either? How about Brooks and Dunn? Alabama wasn't country either. Neither was Travis Tritt or Mark Chesnutt. None of them were named Waylon or Wille or Cash so they're not country either. Oh yea and they weren't from Texas.
