Country genre is highly underestimated and seen as a redneck music (?!). Totally don't get it:mad:
That's because it originated amongst lower socioeconomic groups in the American south and Appalachian Mountains. These are people that were historically viewed with scorn by the middle and upper classes.

For me it's only good or bad music, and if someone else categorize it because of an imagination of who is listening to it (white, black, poor, freak) well he is an Id...t.

We can not understand Hans Zimmer soundtracks of movies set in Africa without listening Power of one (1989).


It is a pity that, at least, Rainmaker theme is not in: The World Of Hans Zimmer (A Symphonic Celebration)

Trust me, it is an essential soundtrack, both for listeners and for professionals working in recording studios. The percussion and voice layers give to write a lot about it.
