There is just so much British Country (?) music which has come out and set for release which quite frankly sounds just like POP/ ROCK lacking completely in country instrumentation.
So many just chasing the trend of the US mainstream drip fed to them on Chris Country Radio and the likes.
OK, the music isn't that bad but it's an insult to wrap themselves in the "country" flag.
Is it the bright lights of the O2 and C2C which see's almost on a weekly basis a new Brit Country (?) act emerge.

As far as Duncan Warwick editor of Country Music People British Country starts and ends with Ag Connolly and My Darling Clementine and was not impressed with the so called country "tagged" The Shires and Ward Thomas albums!

The latest culprit to rebrand

Thorne Hill was widely praised for his energetic performance at Buckle and Boots Festival.
Promoting his new single he was interviewed on Wolverhampton City Radio.
It's been played on Dean and Sheena, CMR Nashville, Baylen Leonard played it and Chris Country Radio made it New Music Monday for this week.
Thorne also asked Bob Harris to retweet about the single which he did.

"Thorne Hill has so much energy, the crowd love him!" - Chris Stevens (Chris Country)

The single costs just 0.79P - https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/what- ... 1250517485

It wasn't even on the UK Country top 200 iTunes Singles yesterday after just 3 days of its release. If #10 is pretty insignificant.
If the UK Male Country Artist of the Year 2016 can't sell his music what chance for anyone else?
Or is it a case that Thorne's "newly defined sound" isn't liked enough for people to actual BUY it.
Of course telling people in interview your new single is on Spotify doesn't help!

Oh no!! Why would anyone want a cover of that song? It's just about perfect in its original form! I hope I NEVER hear her version!!

Agreed, no one is going to improve on it.
