Thompson Square’s Keifer Wants More Meat in Country Music

Thompson Square

The current state of country music has been the topic of much discussion. The pop-enhanced “bro-country” has taken over the airwaves, and fans either have a love it or hate it relationship with it. Thompson Square‘s, Keifer Thompson shares his thoughts on the genre with

“You know, I am a fan of some of it,” he tells toofab. “[But] we’ve kind of opened the flood gates for an influx of different genres to kind of step into country music, ya know? Is country music country music anymore? It’s getting less and less that.”

“What is country music, it’s a relative term,” he muses. “The cool thing about what’s going on right now is the people are telling us what country music should sound like. I think as an artist, what you have to do is be yourself. I think if people want to buy it, people want it, people love it, then God bless ya … Whether I like it or not, it doesn’t really matter.”

Unfortunately, that also means that the genre we know and love is morphing into something else entirely.

I think we will be genreless in ten years,” he says. “That is a little sad, because country music has always — it hasn’t been pop music — it’s always been that. So when everyone else was doing their thing, country music always had a smaller stake in the claim, but it was always country music and you always knew it when you heard it. You can’t really make that distinction anymore sometimes.”

“I don’t think it needs to go back to George Jones and Johnny Cash, but I do think the songs need to have some more meat on ’em,” he continues. “And get back to some story songs, that mean somethin.'”

And…there it is. Country music is more than just dixie cups and tail gates. At some point, we’ve gotta get back to tellin’ stories.
