“What is country music these days, anyway?” It’s a question we often hear at CM, and the truth lies in these very pages. Country music is now bigger and more varied than possibly ever before, and in this edition of the magazine there’s something for everyone.

Cover stars Lady Antebellum are the epitome of the modern country act – melodic, hugely gifted, raised on classic country but now with the broad pop appeal to make them an arena act.

Elsewhere, there’s a look at rockier and rootsier artists with all sorts of fans and backgrounds – who would have known, just a few years ago, that Chris Shiflett of mega-rock band Foo Fighters was such a country aficionado and talented country artist?

Plus, we talk to one-time “rebels” such as Steve Earle and Will Oldham who are now veritable champions of tradition.

The best news is, all this music is on your doorstep. Turn to page 24 for the latest on country across these isles including a host of festivals, and page 6 for hot news of the UK’s forthcoming Country Music Week.

Enjoy the issue.
