"I totally love the new country as to me, it has everything we loved about 80s AOR (not stuff like Ratt, I'm talking AOR) and
brought
it forward. I just picked up the Keith Urban disc...sounds great! Could have been produced by Mutt or Dann Huff...same sound...a
male Shania."

...Kurt, I suspect your feelings about the new country scene stem from the fact that it's a fairly new discovery for you. For those
who have been into the scene since '94 or so, it's been a rather long ride. Some of 'em are bound to get tired of it. I know my wife,
my sister-in-law, and a number of our family's friends have. They used to be big fans of new country music, but have just grown
tired of it over the last year or two. I don't think that that's any indication as to the quality of the new country music that's out there
these days either. Again, I just think that it's had a rather long reign, and that the marked is becoming somewhat saturated. Just
my $0.02.

I think country is changing a bit to reflect the tastes of the new listeners that used to be the AOR fans and didn't like the "old style country". Of course, if you were a fan of country to begin with, you most likely weren't a fan of AOR and the changing towards that sound is going to alienate some of the old fans but they are picking up an entire new audience.
