What does Gary Allan think about some of the ladies in Country Music....

by Charli McKenzie

Gary Allan says his answer to Larry King’s question about whether or not Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift are country has been spun in a way he didn’t intend.

The interview took place last week and aired last night on King’s Ora TV show ‘Larry King Now’. In a 90-second preview, Allan says Swift and Underwood are not country: “I would say they’re pop artists making a living in the country genre.”

Allan elaborated on the point he was making in a post on his Facebook page.  He says: “Country music has changed. During the interview I made it a point to say that my own music has changed over the years. I used to make very different music 10 – 15 years ago. ”

The point he says he was trying to make was that “country music is a blend these days. Our genre has enough room in it for me, a country artist whose country leans towards rock and for more pop sounding country artists, as well as more traditional sounding country artists. None of us are the same, but we all make country radio our home.”
