What is Countrify.ca?
There are some sites like Saving Country Music that bash sub-genres like Pop Country. I completely respect the need to recognize what is traditional and to preserve its roots and what has helped to create the genre and the culture behind it. What I think 'Trigger' fails to acknowledge is that there are many people that may not be, or did not start out as, fans of the country genre.
I grew up in a household dominated by heavy metal and alternative music. It wasn't until recently that I gained an appreciation for the country music genre. Now it's true that I entered into the genre through a mix of more mainstream country, pop country and bro country, but that has led me to explore and appreciate traditional country songs and artists that I may never have taken the time to explore.
I'm proud to say that I am a country fan, so much so that I've created a site for country (and non-country fans) to enjoy and appreciate the genre. What I do agree with 'Trigger' about is the fact that the focus should be people first.
So, let me share what Countrify is today and what it will become:
