How would I become a country artist in the music industry?

How would I become a country artist in the music industry?

Country music in a whole different industry. That is why you don't see it on the charts. If you listen to a good country music station, you eventually realize that it's a thriving industry and the so called mainstream music business is just where the majority of the people go to listen to music.

I'm self-taught too. I play guitar, bass and keyboard and write and record my own music. At your age, you primary focus should be on becoming the very best you can be a playing the guitar. Mast high schools today teach guitar so, you should find out if yours does and when you get there, you can take lessons for free. Here is a 14-year old girl from Australia who plays a lot of instruments and writes, sings and records all of he own music. Over time, you can do the very same thing ... - When your ready, you can setup your own internet presence and actually sell your own music on iTunes or Amazon.com just like these people are doing. But, the first thing is to become an accomplished musician and that just takes a lot of practice.

It would help you get started in the country music business by becoming involved with the Nashville Songwriters Association International but, it's expensive so, maybe for now you can just be aware of who they are. You can also get a MySpace page and make friends on MySpace with other country musicians and learn about the business from them directly. For instance, My very first MySpace friend was Taylor Swift.

How could I develop a country singing voice? - just sing a lot of sountry songs and try to sound like the record.

What chords would I use in a country song? - there are no rules for what chords are considered country and the chord progressions change from year to year.

What could the lyrics in my songs be about? - Most country songs are about relationships and country live in general. Listen to a lot of country music and you'll get ideas. For instance, I'm not actually that fond of country music (I prefer jazz) but, I do write a lot of country music. I wrote one song titled "The Legend of the Santa Rosa Sunset", another titled "Good Ole Country Romance", another titled simply "Just Kiss Her". What makes it a good country song is that it's relative to life in the country. Small country towns have a whole different life style than you find is large cities. That is where country music originated and that is where it lives today. It's music from the heart about the people who make up rural America. If you listen to a lot of country music, you'll see what I mean.

do the British like Country music?

do the British like Country music?

I am English, and an avid lover of traditional Country Music, as I have been for almost 50 years.

When I first became interested in the genre, the only opportunities to see 'live' performances were in dance halls, and, especially, Irish dance clubs. In the mid sixties I went to see the likes of Mac Wiseman, Johnny Cash, George Jones, Melba Montgomery, Tammy Wynette, at one of these venues.

The popularity of Country Music in the U.K. grew through the latter part of the sixties and into the seventies, when we were able to see more and more acts at bigger venues. (I saw Johnny Cash, Chet Atkins, George Hamilton IV, and others at The Royal Albert Hall, and Willie Nelson, Buck Owens, Hank Snow, etc., at the London Palladium).

From the late sixties we were able to see a host of popular Country artists at the International Festival Of Country Music at Wembley Arena every Easter.

We were also able to watch British Country bands at various pubs throughout London, as the popularity of Country Music grew at this time. They were pretty good and offered repertoires which covered all the popular hits of the sixties and seventies.

It does seem that todays Country Music doesn't have the same kind of following as did the classic stuff of that era.

Of Course, I still love Country Music, and can still find a host of present-day acts who consistently come up with music in the traditional style.
