Indie Country is a genre of music that prides itself on its separation from mainstream pop and rock country. This genre of music is different than traditional Country as well, and is a nice refresher. Indie Music seems to attempt at grabbing the roots of country, while adding a modern perspective on the old sound. Folk, blue-grass, southern country and rock, all come to a head in the genre and it can often be a great sound. Indie country has a garage band feel at times, but can also include album studio production, making it very popular among new music enthusiasts.


Indie Country – Calling All Genres…
