Cowboy Junkies are back, and Country Music talks exclusively to Margo and Michael Timmins about the Canadian band’s 30 years of making haunting and unique music.

Country music is more popular than ever. But are some of the records in the country charts really ‘country’ at all? How far can this thing called ‘country music’ change? Read two sides of a fun debate in: has country gone too Pop?
