Lyle Lovett White House, Country music has changed a lot since it was last performed at the White House two years ago, said singers and songwriters who joined President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama in celebrating the genre Monday.
It’s growing more diverse and attracting a broader fan base domestically and internationally, the musicians said before a concert at the White House.
“Country music was so American for so long,” said Darius Rucker, who released his first country album in 2008 after gaining recognition as lead singer for the rock band Hootie and the Blowfish. “Now it’s really becoming an international thing, getting bigger and bigger, and that’s really cool. I’m glad I’m part of it.”
Monday’s event was the seventh in the “In Performance at the White House” series, which has showcased genres ranging from Motown to Broadway show tunes. Performers at Monday’s event included Lauren Alaina, The Band Perry, Dierks Bentley, Alison Krauss, Kris Kristofferson and James Taylor.
Singer Lyle Lovett said country music is “built on the marriage of traditions,” and continues to evolve as technology allows music to transcend regional and national borders.
