What Exactly is “Bro Country” Music?

And when a person says that a dude “ain’t it,” no matter how quickly or how soon he changes the crowd-facing URL to indicate that perhaps that person might have “bro-country” chops, what exactly does that mean?

It’s a heartrending song (at least as far as the lyrics go).  I don’t know–myself–if Chris Stapleton (who I’d not heard of prior to last week’s CMA awards) has “Bro-Country” chops” or not.  IMHO, he’s a bit overwrought.  And I tend to favor the Emmylou Harris, Kris Kristofferson, Ed Simpkin school of Country/Bluegrass music myself.  The rest of it all seems a bit passive/aggressive to me.

What do you think?
