Subject: Speaking "country"
There's at least one singer whose "country" accent is thicker when she
speaks than when she sings: Nanci Griffith.
Not incidentally, country recordings from _very_ early (the 1920's)
mostly have a rather different accent than what's now considered
"country." To me, it sounds more lowland Southern and less "Hillbilly."
(However, I'm not a trained observer. I don't even play one on television.)
