Question
If there was someone that hates country music what should they listen to, to change their mind? What does quintessential country sound like?

Answer
Hi James,

Since this question is strictly opinionated, I would suggest listening to "Red Dirt" or Texas Country. It has more of a southern rock under tone and isn't as pop as the main stream country you hear on the radio. Some of my favorites are below. Let me know what you think.
