Country Music Genres

Over the years, the development of country music has been very rampant and unpredictable. At different points, it was presented by different genres that reminded of pop, blues, or jazz. Today, we are going to offer you a list of the most prominent stages in country music development. There are the basic genres, from the 1920-ies to the present day:

Early country

Early country (a.k.a. hillbilly music) was a mixture of British folk ballads and New World forms, including jazz and blues. The songs of this genre were typically played on the fiddle and not the guitar. Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family were probably the first prominent performers to rise to national fame with their early country hits.

Musical Response to Ferguson Shooting

The Game, P Diddy, Rick Ross and plenty of other performers have recorded a song addressing the challenges around unarmed teenager Michael Brown from Ferguson earlier this month.

The Game has joined up with a group of four R&B performers and ten rappers to create a protest song “Don’t Shoot”.

P Diddy, 2 Chainz, Rick Ross, Wale, Swizz Beatz, Fabolous, DJ Khaled, Yo Gotti, Problem, King Pharaoh, Curren$y and the R&B group TGT (Tank, Ginuwine and Tyrese) featured on “Don’t Shoot”.

Gerard Way Declared His First Solo US Tour

He is going to perform the songs from his forthcoming solo debut album entitled “Hesitant Alien”. Its release is appointed on September 30.

Top 2014 Country Albums

Since the beginning of 2014, there have been so many country album releases that it would be appropriate to call 2014 the year of country music. With a plethora of new stuff to listen to, you might have a really hard time narrowing the selection of albums down to only the best CDs. But we can help – these are our top picks for 2014:

The Outsiders

DNA Review

Little Mix is a wildly popular modern girl band that can make even the One Direction boys be envious of their success. Not only did the young talented girls take home the coveted X Factor UK victory which was denied the boys, but also they had tons of positive commentary on their debut album – DNA. It is a solid and consistent collection of great singles. The whole CD is a lot of fun to listen to. Little Mix clearly reach for inspiration to the glorious days of hip R&B girl bands TLC and En Vogue. The singers’ productive work is complemented magnificently by their collaborators. You’re very unlikely to be left disappointed by DNA if you enjoyed the girls’ previous hits from X Factor UK.

Italian Singer Giulia Kicks of with ‘Radio Junky’

Amazing European talent appears on the UK shores while Italian singer/songwriter Giulia presents her debut single entitled ‘Radio Junky’ – a delicious temptation will increase when her debut album ‘Raze Me To The Ground’ appear (it is planned to be released early 2015).

Dr. Dre Joined Eminem at His Show at London’s Wembley Stadium

To support the rapper during his first of two massive concerts in Britain Danny Brown and Odd Future took part in this huge performance earlier that evening. Eminem appeared on the stage at about 9:30PM, but he was antedated by the video that displayed the performer’s back story starting with his early days spent in Detroit and proceeding to his troublesome family relationships and his latest drug addiction and rehabilitation.

Johnny Depp Is a Guest Star in Paul McCartney’s ‘Early Days’ Music Video

A trendy new music clip for Paul McCartney’s “Early Days” shows a famous Hollywood actor Johnny Depp participating in it as a guest star.

The music video presents McCartney who is playing the guitar alone, but little by little blues guitarists among them you can see Johnny Depp surround him. Patti Smith was at the film set, but she didn’t participate in the music video.
