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…


While pop country has annoyed many fans with its repetitive choruses and auto tune verses, indie country takes back its pride by staying original and fresh. The sound is very unique, and all around pleasurable. Its fun to listen to, and is a great addition to most environments. From slow and melodic, to fast and upbeat, this genre can knock your socks off or even relax you to sleep. This original sound is a nice mixture between country and rock as well, and features gut busting solos and ballads that can move you to tears; sad and somber to rockin and rollin. Any music enthusiast can lend an ear to indie country, and be shocked and satisfied with the noises they’re hearing. It’s also a fast rising genre at Indie Music Plus…
