Is It Any Good?
This upbeat series features singers performing music that reflects the themes and values of the country music genre. While some of the judges prefer more traditional country crooners, others look for acts that offer more contemporary and diverse versions of country songs. But regardless of their preferences, they're looking for acts that are authentic.
There are some mildly crude remarks, as well as lots of references to drinking and other adult-oriented behaviors. But much of this is characterized by the cast as being part of country music culture. If you are a country music fan and can look past this, Real Country will prove itself to be a fun viewing option.
