Personal Throwback 2014: Country Music


Untuk personal throwback hari ni, saya nak cakap pasal "Country Music" ataupun muzik country. Apa tu Country Music?

  1. Country music is a genre of American popular music that originated in Southern United States, in Atlanta, Georgia in the 1920s. It takes its roots from the southeastern genre of American folk music and Westernmusic.
Pada pendapat saya, country music ni banyak menggunakan gitar akustik dan sebutan setiap lirik tu lebih kepada sebutan orang2 Amerika di Texas dan sebagainya tapi tak semestinya orang Texas je boleh nyanyi lagu2 country dan sebutannya ala2 sebutan cowboy di bahagian barat Amerika. Kiranya country music ni agak klasik jugaklah.
Sejak tahun 2014, saya mula minat lagu2 country lepas dengar lagu 'The House That Built Me' nyanyian pemenang anugerah Country Music Awards, Miranda Lambert di Extreme Makeover Home Edition. Lepas tu saya minat pulak lagu2 dia lain contohnya White Liar dan Mama's Broken Heart.

Lepas tu pulak bekas pemenang American Idol dan bekas pemenang anugerah vokal terbaik Country Music Awards iaitu Carrie Underwood menjadi pilihan. Saya minat lagu2 nya contohnya Blown Away dan Before He Cheats. 

Tapi, kadang2 kalau sebut country music mesti ingat Taylor Swift. Tapi, rasanya Taylor ada satu je lagu country. Sekarang dah jadi artis pop pulak.

Kalau nak cuba dengar lagu2 country, tengoklah kat bawah ni.
