If you aren’t a loyal country fan, it’s easy to think the genre is all about tailgates and dirt roads. But today’s biggest stars are here to set the record straight.
In a video from Buzzfeed, Dierks Bentley, Trace Adkins, Brett Eldredge and more take turns answering some rather ridiculous questions about country music. And as you could expect, their answers are pretty priceless.
Naturally, you have plenty of sassy jabs about country’s worst cliches. But once you get past that, there’s a few rather thought-provoking questions. Seriously, why aren’t there more country songs about cats? That’s something I can get behind.
The whole thing wraps up with the stars explaining exactly why you should give country music a chance. Sure, it’s easy to joke about the genre’s stereotypes. But there is plenty of substance, emotion and wisdom to be found if you dig a little deeper. Like Adkins says, if you enjoy “real people and real situations,” there’s at least one country song out there that’s guaranteed to connect with you.
