Country music is becoming increasingly divided and I wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t either see a revival of “traditional country” music or a complete split into a new genre for the more pop sounding artists. In the article many people’s responses toward the new country/pop genre were collectively negative. People weren’t as offended by Ashton Kucher as they were by non country artists performing at the American Country Music Awards. I will agree that the genre has lost its direction and in my opinion it has lost some of its authenticity that originally made the genre popular to begin with. Artists are losing sight of what their music stands for and using good songs with sub-par lyrics simply to make money and market to a vulenerable wanna be country crowd that seems to eating up this crossover music.
Some of these newer artists are collaborating with hip hop and pop artists, which has long been supported by the country music community. Musical collaboration with different genres is a great way to open yourself up to a new fan base and learn appreciation for another artists who does different things. The music though, is getting lost and more and more leaning towards being actual pop music. The use of drum machines in country music was completely unheard of 10 years ago and now it can be found in several new songs. I personally found Kutcher’s outfit just as offensive as the lack of “real” country music. I think that in making fun of the genre by dressing like that, he’s acknowledging that country music has lost most of its original credibility. His actions seemed to mock true country almost as much as Taylor Swift does by still continuing to say she’s a country artist. While this style is making money, it’s losing what it originally stood for.

The watershed music festival is a new national country music festival to take place this year in Seattle. Aside from the CMA festival held annually in Nashville, this will be one of the largest music festivals in the nation. In order to boost the attendance and gain interest in the festival, the event planners and promoters booked Miranda Lambert and her husband Bake Shelton to kick off the festival. This was an extremely wise choice because they are two of country’s hottest artists right now. The pair married last year and since then have both had best selling albums and more than one hit single each. Shelton returned for season 4 of NBC’s The Voice to win his second season in a row with country singer Danielle Bradburry. Lambert has been on a whirlwind tour across the US and has released 3 hit singles and won female entertainer of the year at the ACM awards. They could not have picked better people to help start a new music festival.
In my opinion, shows like this are exactly what country music needs. It helps to unite the fans and it give people a chance to see multiple national acts for one price and in one weekend. Event promoter Brian O’Connell even said that “country music is a community” This festival is an attempt to bring country music back together in a time when crossover artists are fragmenting the genre.

Eric Church has been making a serious name for himself in country music recently. He has had several hit singles that have gained him quick and widespread popularity. In this article they talk about how he is creating his own brand of country music and I have to agree. His songs are a blend of traditional twang and rock music. He has had his share of controversial behavior, engaging in public rifts with Miranda Lambert, however that is what country music used to be. Right or wrong, the concept of country music came about with the idea of the country outlaw and that is what Church us trying to revive.
With country music becoming so scattered and fragmented, he has managed to find a way to stand out while simultaneously staying true to the roots of country music. From a PR standpoint, he would not be the most stable person to count on for reliable tweets; however, he has staying power and a unique sound that many other artists lack. There is a genuine quality about his music that draws fans to him and will continue to draw people to him and his music for a long while.

Twitter has been growing by leaps and bounds in the past few years and country music is not falling behind on the trend. More than ever artists are using the social media site to reach their swarms of tech savvy fans. Twitter is changing social media and PR. For the Academy of Country Music Awards, twitter proved to increase the viewing audience and gain people’s interest more so than ever. The award show lined up a special correspondent to kick start a social media discussion about the awards and she lead the twitter discussion with specific hashtags and tweets directed to get a response.
The show’s awareness of the importance of social media showed in their numbers. Their social media activity was increased by 330% from the past year, an impressive number for any show. The viewers of the show also use social media to vote, as the ACM awards are decided upon by a fan driven vote. This use of social media shows that the networks are acknowledging the need to adapt as PR changes. Social media, especially twitter, is becoming the best way to reach large numbers of viewers or fans as the show airs. The use of real time tweets and guided discussions made for a very successful viewing, which will only continue to grow if they continue to utilize social media for their PR the way that they did last year.
