Jake’s Blog: Does That Beat Sound Familiar?

If you’re a country music lover, this video does a wonderful job explaining why many of today’s country songs feel the same.

And my favorite part of the video is how it’s not disparaging of country music.  It tells exactly how a song comes to be, and how one artist can innocently influence another artist into making a song that sounds similar.  “This beat is in the drinking water.”  Great quote.

We all know country music is about songwriting…  so keep that in mind when you listen.  Maybe the underlying drum beat sounds like another song you’ve heard, but lyrically, every artist and every new song has something to say.

So let’s appreciate it.  =)
