    We tend to think of Country Music as one thing, but it's always been many things, country Music omnivorously wants to grab cowboy music and western swing, and the Bakersfield sound and the Nashville sound, countrypolitan and all the various permutations of string bands up and down Appalachia, one of which branches off into a whole new genre called bluegrass. Country Music's never ending and Country Music's omnivorous and Country Music's not Country Music. Country Music's always been connected. There's no border. No passports required, that allows you to go into RB or allows you to go into jazz or allows you to go into folk or rock. It is, in fact, one of the parents of rock with RB.
