2. "It all sounds the same."

Country music pulls in fans from all over the country, even the world. Some of the biggest music festivals such as StageCoach and Watershed take place on the West Coast.

4. You must own cowboy boots.

Contrary to belief, not every country music fan owns a pair of cowboy boots.

5. And you must own a cowboy hat.

But none of us can rock it as good as the King, George Strait.

6. Country music is starting to sound more pop.

Whether you enjoy the new country sound or not, it's safe to say that this has been a rising controversy among fans as the genre's sound is shifting to have a more pop feel.
