Country Music Most Popular Genre?

Latest study suggests country music is reigning king of music


npd-music-chartAccording to a newly released study from the NPD Group, country music has overtaken Classic Rock (60’s-80’s) as America’s most popular choice in music. The study suggests country music’s diversity has enabled it to become a favorite choice of young and old alike.

The NPD Group’s study does point at that while country music is the overall winner across all age groups, that when broken down, Classic Rock (60’s-80’s) is still the favorite among listeners aged 36 and older.

The study, which was a part of NPD’s “Annual Music Study 2012” was based on answers given in online surveys from 5,406 individuals and all answers were weighted and projected to be representative of the U.S. Internet population over the age of 13. It would be interesting to see what a “word on the street” interview would yield.
