So, here's a question for you, Ferret: In Australia, is "country music" American country music or Australian country music? If it's the latter, what's that sound like?

dunno

Below is a quote from the Tamworth Country Music Festival website and fairly well puts it in a 'nutshell'. And also puts it better than I could.exactly

Australian country music has been influenced by Celtic and English folk music, by the traditions of Australian bush balladeers, as well as by popular American country music. Themes include: outback life, the lives of stockmen, truckers and outlaws, songs of romance and of political protest; and songs about the "beauty and the terror" of the Australian bush.

As for how it sounds look at this link

Slim Dusty is to Australian country music what Elvis is to American rock & roll. Of course, his is not the only 'style'

Thanks for sharing that link, Ferret! Except for the accent, it sounds a lot like American country music. That shouldn't be surprising, I guess, considering American music was also influenced by English, Scottish and Irish music.

thumbs-up
