3 Subgenres Of Country Music You’ve Probably Never Heard Of

Country music is a broad and varied genre of music, which has naturally meant that more niche, subgenres have emerged over time. Here are some of the most obscured country subgenres you might have never heard of!

Red Dirt

Yep, you read it correctly. “Red Dirt” is a type of country music, a particular class at that. Its name is derived from the colour of soil found in Oklahoma, where it originated. Fans of this subgenre describe it as like an indie genre of rock ‘n’ roll, mixed with folk, country and the blues.

Zydeco

Founded in southwest Louisiana, Zydeco is a type of music that meshes traditional blue sounds with indigenous music from the native people of Louisiana. It is a highly complicated genre of country, often dominated by a rapid tempo and the use of a “rub board.”

Gothabilly

Gothabilly is a combination of gothic rock and country. Gothabilly is arguably one of the most modern forms of country music, primarily because it arose during the early to mid-1990s. The famous punk-rock band, the Cramps, are commonly affiliated with this genre and psychobilly sounds. Many modern gothabilly bands originated in California.
