Secrets of Country Record Production

CMA Close Up/CMA/ Nashville, TN -- By Fett
Many of today’s Country albums and singles share certain production sensibilities. Over the past 20 years or so, they’ve come to adapt numerous production techniques from other genres – particularly rock, pop and R&B – to the point that, if you strip away the vocal, fiddle and pedal steel, the remaining tracks sometimes don’t sound that “Country” at all. This may partially explain why more Country songs cross over to other charts than in the past. But how do you balance this success against the idea of “keeping it Country”?
