Neo-traditional country is a country music style that emphasizes the instrumental background and a "traditional" country vocal style. Neo-traditional country artists dress in the fashions of the country music scene of the 1940s, 1950s and early 1960s; some neo-traditional artists are sometimes associated with the alternative country movement. Neo-traditional country rose to popularity in the mid-1980s, a few years after the so-called "outlaw movement," a previous "back-to-its-roots" movement, had faded in popularity. Neo-traditionalism was born as a reaction to the perceived blandness of the mainstream country music at the time, influenced by the rise of the "urban cowboy" fad. New traditionalism looked to the elders of country music like Ernest Tubb, Hank Williams, Kitty Wells and George Jones for inspiration, was a precursor to the more general categorization known as new country; the creation of neo-traditionalism was done in contrast to the more pop-oriented acts of the 1970s and 1980s, such as Ronnie Milsap and Anne Murray, along with the flood of former pop acts that were switching to "country" to revive their careers.
In the early 1980s, Ricky Skaggs, a picking prodigy who took his inspiration from Bill Monroe and Ralph Stanley, began making music that he believed brought country back to its roots. Another Neo-traditional Country artist was one of Skaggs' friend and former band-mate, Keith Whitley, who focused on countrypolitan ballads. After his success with "Don't Close Your Eyes", Whitley was said to be a promising new artist. Despite his death, Whitley's sound remained influential among country artists. At that same time, artists like Emmylou Harris, John Anderson and Gail Davies, whose hits included re-makes of songs by Ray Price, Webb Pierce, Carl Smith, The Louvin Brothers and Johnnie & Jack, set the tone in the late'70s and early'80s. Following that, Randy Travis, George Strait, Patty Loveless, The Judds used vintage musical stylings, covers of classic country material, crafted vocal delivery to help bring New Traditionalism to the vanguard of country music for a time; some of the last top-10 hits from a number of classic country stars came during the neo-traditional boom of the late 1980s and into 1990.
Neo-traditionalism, to a certain extent, fell out of favor in 1991, when Billboard removed record sales from its country chart and a new brand of popular country music exploded into mainstream popularity, led in large part by Garth Brooks. Despite this shift, of the acts that were still popular in the 1980s, more of the neo-traditional artists survived the shift into the 1990s than did those who did pop country in the 1980s tradition. In 2000, Strait and Jackson, both of whom remain popular as of the early 2010s, recorded a song titled "Murder on Music Row" which spoke directly to the rift between neo-traditionalists and pop-country musicians. Among the lyrics are brazen barbs at the Nashville establishment such as "Someone killed tradition, for that, someone should hang." Along with country pop and country rock, neo-traditional country remains one of the veins of country music that holds mainstream popularity in the late 2010s. The website Saving Country Music noted that another wave of neo-traditional popularity was beginning to emerge following backlash from the bro-country fad of the early 2010s, at the same time cautioning: "we still need to see more widespread adoption before we declare ourselves in the midst of another neo-traditionalist resurgence."
