Parent Genre: country

Kentucky roots music is a genre that blends traditional Appalachian folk music with elements of country, bluegrass, and rock. The music is characterized by raw, emotional vocals and lyrics that often touch on themes of love, loss, and the struggles of rural life. The sound is often stripped-down and acoustic, with a focus on storytelling and authentic, heartfelt performances. The genre has gained popularity in recent years thanks to a new generation of artists who are carrying on the traditions of their musical forebears while adding their own unique twists and perspectives.
