I’m sure LUKE BRYAN is sick and tired of talking about “bro-country.” And yet, he was polite enough to give an honest answer when it came up in an interview with Cleveland’s “Plain Dealer”.
He said, quote, “I take a little offense. I feel the initial term bro-country was created to be kind of a little degrading to what’s popular, to what country artists are doing right now.”
He makes a pretty good point. If you want to badmouth today’s country music, just call it bro-country. He adds, quote, “It’s frustrating because whichever artists may or may not get labeled as that, they’re well beyond that.”
He also believes the term is an insult to his fans. Quote, “It just seems like [it] was invented to cheapen me as an artist. My fans are there because my version of music is what they love, and that’s what I’m all about.”
