The Best Answer I've Ever Heard
The question: "What do you think about today's country music?"
The answer is Jim Lauderdale's: "You can't judge country music by what's currently popular."
Meaning that music genres constantly evolve. He also pointed out that rock music is not the same today as it was when it started out. What is popular always changes. My addition: Looking at country music as a whole, think about how rich it is with different sub-genres to meet (almost) everyone's taste.
