Uh... I guess US? Though a lot of country music I'd say is based from US stuff. I get that there's talented musicians, I just find the genre as a whole (and I'm generalising here) to just be dripping with cheese. Those lap steel swells and the singing voices are enough to give me nightmares. To me a lot of it is quite... same-y. And that's in a P&W thread! It is a fine line, but I do often very much enjoy stuff that is more of a folk / soft rock / alt country persuasion. For example, the aforementioned Mayer, America, Ryan Adams, Terry Reid, etc. But country country? Not really for me.
