Country Music Chaos

I have an open mind but what I don’t get is Country music acts trying to be pop and rock artists too? I am a casual country fan who thinks the genre has lost its soul while trying to be all things to all fans. Now I’m not saying some of the new stuff is all bad. There seems to be an identity crisis. It makes you wonder why they can’t stick to their roots with the influence of Cash, Carter, Williams, Nelson, Parton and George Jones. It’s OK to be who you are as a person and in music.
