There's also a country-ish kind of music in rural Rio Grande do Sul where I used to live.

That's called Vaneirão

I think I've heard of a few areas of Brazil that also are into cattle-ranching and wear the cowboy hats. Not sure if they listen to American country music though...

Now I know "Wikipedia" isn't a one-stop source for knowledge (that's why I'm asking this question here), but it had the same thing on the "Eurodance" page and it was spot on as far as I know.

I've known American-style country music was popular in Australia, Ireland, the UK, and Canada for some time (though nowhere as near as popular in the rural US I suppose); but Brazil?

Also, where else have you heard country music?
Ive never heard much American country, although you do hear some of the more poppy country from time to time in Brazil. They have their own version of country music, that is seen as the music for the Brazilian equivalents of rednecks.

American country music is, how can I say, "known" in Brazil, but not as popular as american pop music, for example. Brazilian "country" music ( known as "Sertaneja" ) though, is very popular.

Country music, rodeo and rural lifestyle are appreciated all around the world, in Brazil, Ireland, Mexico, South Africa, New Zealand, Canada and many other places.

This video is from Barretos, the worlds largest Rodeo in terms of attendance and payoff. Brazil has a rich ranching and rodeo tradition, and has produced many PBR champions here in the USA such as Adriano Moraes and Guilherme Marchi.

I have lived in the rurals of Paraguay for 15 years and visited the rurals of Brazil many times. AMERICAN country music is very popular in the rurals of Paraguay and Brazil. Alan Jackson is among the most popular. Nightly, every weekend hundreds gather to do line dancing in a vacant lot or a designated dancing area. The music is loud! The women are amazing! The guys are tough and real cowboys! The music is hard to confuse with some of the Brazilian country, which is also popular and frequently mixed in. About 700,000 Brazilians now live with us here in Paraguay and they are American country lovers. The paraguayans, not so much.
