Bro Country

What does bro country mean?

A subgenre of mainstream country music

Bro country is a subgenre of country music that includes elements of rock and hip hop. The name comes from the themes of country songs that match the hallmarks of a bro which refers to a muscular, dumb guy who only want to party and get with girls.

Bro country songs are typically about women, partying, drinking alcohol, and pickup tucks. The term became popular in 2013 as songs featuring bro country themes by Florida Georgia Line, Jake Owen, Luke Bryan, and Blake Shelton became more popular. Some popular bro country songs are "Cruise" by Florida Georgia Line, "My Kinda Party" by Jason Aldean, "Bottoms Up" by Brantley Gilbert, "Boys 'Round Here" by Blake Shelton, and "That's My Kind of Night" by Luke Bryan. There has been significant criticism of the subgenre, with many opponents claiming that it should not be considered country at all.
