Millions of people love country music. It might not be as popular as it was before the eighties but that is only because there is a lot of variety. Young people tend to listen to what is current therefore leaving country music alone.
No one believes in country music anymore if they were born after the year 1995 (excluding me I love country music and worship it) they would rather listen to J.B. and 1D and Cody Simpson, or Greyson Chance or Eminem or other gay sh!tty rap or hip hop. I was born in 1999 but I worship country music so :P to the people who listen to rap!
