Country is crossover music at best
Country will always be just that a GENRE. It is never going to make it mainstream. And to make matters worse for Scotty mc NOT-ty ... Only female artists become successfull crossover country - pop artists. BUT NEVER MEN!
Case in point: Carry underwood, Shania twain, dolly parton, lady antebellum, and of course... Taylor swift! Good bye scotty. Get ready to be swallowed into the sea of mediocrity that is American Idol winners. Try to get a gravestone next to Taylor hicks!
