    Its my view that things haven't changed a bit since then, with the addition of rhythmic hip-hop (or hick-hop) to the repertoire.

    Keep in mind that today's country artists grew up on 80s & 90s country, so they see the genre from that perspective.

    Eddie Rabbitt didn't sound country either for the most part, but I liked him. "Drivin' My Life Away" would be an exception. "Suspicion" is definitely not country but it makes a good smooth jazz song.

    I gave the song a second chance and it does start with a banjo and yes, it sounds country. Then it really, really doesn't.
