It was still country, it changed to this crap they try to pass off as country today when clear channel took over and basically gave a cease and desist order to their stations to stop playing traditional artists such as Conway Twitty, Merle Haggard, George Jones, Willie Nelson, etc... All the new singers at that time were being heavily promoted and the legends were being fazed-out. Willie found a way around that at various times by having duets with Lee Ann Womack, Toby Keith and others.
