Was just wondering if its mostly a American thing or if other countries have there own "country" music. I know pops everywhere and we have those crazy vikings to thank for some good metal here and there.

It's sorta seeping into other genres. So we some shitty pop knockoff stuff. But when it comes to the real stuff it's pretty rare. I guess there isn't much of an audience outside of the us.

outside of the U.S/Canada I dont think its a big thing
Stop worrying about how you look, and start worrying about how you play. Get out on the field and play paintball the best you can, not stand at home in front of a mirror trying to figure out if your jersey matches your eyes.

There's a lot of country fans in Scandinavia.
Not me though, I'm mostly into Rock and Blues type music or Drum and Bass.

I'm still surprised when there are country fans anywhere.

i always thought it was a mid west and south kinda thing


The ultimate truth in paintball is that the interaction between the gun and the player is far and away the largest factor in accuracy, consistency, and reliability.

And yes, Gordon is the sexiest manifestation of "to the front."

I have never been a big fan of country. Usually rock metal and several branches of that. But its growing on me. I listen to everything but country's starting to get up there with my rock and metal

it's about all we get in alaska. I think up here has more rednecks than most of the south. 

 

I for one hate most new country, however, get some old western gunslinger ballads, and I'll be happy

All this new shit isn't country music. It's pop bullshit with a little bit of banjo or guitar here and there. I think country has gone way down hill after 2011. Guys like Jon Anderson and johnny cash and Waylon Jennings are real country music singers.

I find that the only people around my area that listen to country are the try-hard rednecks that drive brodozers and talk hick on purpose.

Hah "brodozers"  never heard that term before.  I don't know.  Yeah here in SD we have some guys that take it too far as well but it's really no different than gangster rap in cities.  Different strokes for different folks.  Yeah country isn't anything like it used to be and it has a definate pop influence to it now for some artists but its just evolving.  Rock is the same.  What used to be "heavy" rock can't even compare to todays standards of rock in the mainstream artists.

 

 

Fuck yea.

Brappers would be a term more used for sled necks, mudders, and dirt bikers around here.  And I'll admit everytime I hear someone same BRAAAAP I have to hold myself back from punching them in their stupid face.

 

I see it as the equivalent of someone screaming HHHHHHH but in a redneck tone.

I love country music but after the radio plays a lot of the same new stuff 3 times a day I tend to just flip to Tupac or eminent radio on pandora every once in a while.
