Country music formats


Country
As one of the more popular, there are more stations with some type of country format than any other type of format. Country music origins date back to the 1920's, but has progressed over the decades to include such styles as western swing, bluegrass, honky tonk, urban cowboy, and today's new county.

Hit country
As a variety of the country format, hit country stations will concentrate their play lists on current country hits of today and the last few months. Alternate names to this format include new country, hot country or young country.

Classic country
As another variety of the country format, classic country stations will concentrate their play lists to classic country hits, also referred to as gold country or oldies country. These play lists would include country songs from the early 90's, 80's and/or 70's.

Ranchera
This format of country is best known in Texas, the southwest United States and throughout Mexico. In a very loose definition, ranchera is more or less a flavor of country music in the Spanish language, but if you ask a Spanish person, they might tell you this is best form of country music.
