Why is “western-music” being deleted as a keyword?
For some reason, “western-music” is being deleted a a keyword. It is a valid keyword, and even possibly a yet unacknowledged Music subgenre. It DOES NOT just mean “music used in a Western title.” Here’s the Wikipedia definition:
Western music is a form of country music composed by and about the people who settled and worked throughout the Western United States and Western Canada. Western music celebrates the lifestyle of the cowboy on the open ranges, Rocky Mountains, and prairies of Western North America. Directly related musically to old English, Irish, Scottish, and folk ballads, also the Mexican folk music of Northern Mexico and Southwestern United Statesinfluenced the development of this genre, particularly corrido, ranchera, New Mexico and Tejano. Western music shares similar roots with Appalachian music (also called country or hillbilly music), which developed around the same time throughout Appalachia and the Appalachian Mountains. The music industry of the mid-20th century grouped the two genres together under the banner of country and western music, later amalgamated into the modern name, country music.
Perhaps it should be changed to country-western-music, although some make a distinction between those two.
Why is this objective and accurate keyword being deleted? Perhaps, whoever is deleting it does not understand what it actually is.
