Question for anyone who doesn't live in the "South"?

I have lived in the South all my life and so has my family so excuse my musical ignorance...

My question for anyone lives in a state that isn't deemed Southern (New England, Out West, etc) is:
Is there country music on your radio??

Just wondering about this as I sit singing along to some good ol' Country tunes!

Ooh, I know this one! When I lived in Los Angeles, there was indeed country music on the radio. In fact, my time in SoCal was the only time I ever listed to country music -big surprise. I think people seem to forget that it's not just southern music, it's country western, and cowboys were big in California once upon a time.

Country music is all anyone listens to up here! (I don't mean that in a negative way).

I went through a phase where I listened to it all the time a few years ago, and now I still enjoy select artists, but my preference is still Motown, old boy bands, Disney stuff ... but there's always room for Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks, etc!

Same here. In my 20's that is all I listened to. It's still my favorite kind of dancing. However, I'm with loveWDWalways as far as the music I listen to these days, plus add in oldies & 70's music.

I live just outside of NYC and I do not believe there are any country stations at all.
There used to be one years ago, but nothing recently.

When they had the CMAs here a couple of years ago I remember they were like the CMAs are in NY where there is no country music station-doesn't make a lot of sense.

This is exactly what I was going to post. My one friend was very upset when the station changed formats.

The closest we get to country songs around here are Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift and only their real pop stuff, like the cheating song where she carved her name into his leather seats! Oh and they did used to play that Achy Breaky Heart song way back when...whatever happened to that guy?

I'm right outside, too, and I don't know of any.

I like your taste in music!

Like I said before, I mostly listen to the genres I listed (I just love the Backstreet Boys, The Temptations, Jo Bros - yes, I love 'em! - etc.), but there's also something about country artists like George Strait and other similarly respected individuals that can appeal to many people with various musical tastes.

We were pretty much as far in the NE as you could get w/o being in Canada (Northern NY) and YES there were country stations. Music is universal...

In most areas there is usually one radio station that is devoted to country (US99 here in Chicago, I think). On the pop stations they'll play a top ten country cross over if there is one out at the time. Two Taylor Swift songs are on heavy rotation right now, in fact.

I live in CT. I grew up on Country and Western-- the old time country-- conway twitty, johnny cash, oak ridge boys - you get the picture. I was/am a huge Alabama fan. It was the only music allowed at home. I was also the only one who listened to it thru JR high/high school-- the 80's. Seriously picked on during HS. Growing up our station was from NY. Still listen to it today-- WWYZ 92.5.

Funny story-- I had my 20 yr HS reunion a few year ago. I went w/ my BFF- just before we got to the reunion, I told BFF -- that watch people will say that I was listening to all the right music during HS. Not more then 5 minutes of walking into the reunion - while picking up our name tags-- the president of the class - walked up to me and said that all she listens to now is Country and that I was onto something all during HS. I turned to BFF and said-- told ya!
