    What is Country Music? [VIDEO]

    So, I thought this deserved its own thread. The same person (Jessica Northey) who hosted the CMA Panel many of us watched last week, hosted another chat about "what is country music?" and it's rather interesting. They chat about the history of the genre, Taylor Swift, the Kelly Clarkson CMA nomination and more.

    No, but they actually came clean and admit that Taylor is labeled country just for the money - not music. That it is all politics, the Reba/Kelly thing was hashed out again and there was admissions of market manipulation, including the idea of warehouse of CDs. Carrie was not mentioned by name, but all the things we have been talking about came up and a lot of the panel of insiders admitted to them.

    The only time Carrie was mentioned was when they were talking about Kelly's FVOTY nomination. The guy from Billboard asked the question of who would they put in the 5th slot. Then he began to list the other 4 nominees. He of course quickly rattled off Carrie, Miranda and Taylor and couldn't remember that Martina was the 4th, which just shows how weak the competition is among the women of country below the top 3. Unfortunately that is not a reflection on the talent of the other women of country, but is a reflection of how poorly the women of country are often treated by the industry. As a aide note, one person on the panel did suggest Kellie Pickler, but admitted that weak sales and airplay pretty much killed her chances at the nomination.
