In a move that was expected after an announcement in late October, Harmonix is apparently preparing to make five country songs available for download. Country Music Television's blogger, Alison Bonagura, has reported that Harmonix will be adding five country songs to their downloadable store on December 16. With a library of over 400 rock songs, this marks the first time that Rock Band will feature songs way outside its genre.
The artists that will be featured in the set include: Brad Paisley, Bentley, Brooks & Dunn, The Dixie Chicks and Miranda Lambert. Considering how many fans have openly complained about the recent selection of rock songs added over the last couple of weeks, we can only imagine what type of backlash this could potentially create.
