The facts bother you that much, huh?

No one here is being difficult. Instead of being insulting, why not just explain your points further?

Translation: "You mean to tell me, that the un-cultured, strip mall filled, sprawl filled, Southern United States was the birthplace of most of America's most popular genres of music?" You mad?

IMO The term “popular music” means music that has wide appeal. Until the heyday of what was called Minstrel music most vocal music Americans practiced was church music, art songs, or traditional music. Stephen Foster who had never been to the south started writing “Plantation Songs” These songs seemed exotic to the American public and became hugely popular. From about the late 1700’s up until the 1940’s the south was considered a goal mine for exotic melodies that could be made into popular music.

Because he can't.

He is really a piece of work, I see. Right about now, I miss the guy who says everybody hates Maryland because they don't consider it a Southern state.

True Bluegrass is practically the same as Irish, Welsh, and Scottish fast paced dance music that they would play at pubs and festivals for hundreds of years. Just like the southern accent, which is just a variation of accents of the 17th and 18th century British Isles that people now associate with backwards behavior and worldviews. This is because the Appalachian hill people, which spread over the whole south and western region (cowboys) of the United States, were rowdy warriors and cast off from the "civilized" Christendom for so long. The "Wild West" is "Scots-Irish West". They behaved no differently in their previous homes of Tennessee, Kentucky and western Virginia. Bar fights, whiskey, shooting guns in the air, and so forth. That's why Nashville music and NASCAR are so big out there today.
