Representation of male and female artists within country-pop music

  1. 1. Billy Ray CyrusBilly Ray Cyrus is an American country/country pop singer born in 1961 who as well assinging, plays the guitar and piano.Billy has created 12 studio albums and has had 44 singles released since 1992; those of whichhave been translated into 100 different languages. He had a number one with ‘Achy breakyheart’ which was the first ever single to achieve triple platinum status in Australia. Billy RayCyrus has had 8 top ten singles on Billboard Country Songs. He also produced 35 chartedsingles, these of which 15 charted in the top 40.
  2. 2. Shania TwainShania Twain is a Canadian country pop singer that was born in 1965, who as well as singingplays the guitar.Her song ‘come on over’ became the best selling studio album of all time by a female artist inany genre of music. She also had the best selling country album of all time and won 5 GrammyAwards. Shania sold more than85 million albums worldwide.
  3. 3. Billy Ray Cyrus How is he represented as an artist in his hit single, ‘change my mind’? Traditional Modern -Cowboy hat -Tattoos (not (typical male seen on many accessory) country pop -Sunglasses artists, ‘bad (not showing boy’ emotions) connotations -Desert background (fitting to genre) I think that Billy Ray Cyrus has been represented as a traditional artist in the country-pop genre of music. Although he has tattoo’s which doesn’t fit in with the ‘godly’ connotations of country music; these shots from the music video portray him to be a traditional male in this in this genre.
  4. 4. Shania Twain How is she represented as an artist in her hit single, ‘man I feel like a women’? Traditional Modern -Red lipstick -Men wearing (feminine) makeup -Heavy eye -Men standing makeup behind the -Cleavage female (she is showing the main focus) -Face covered -Female wearing with netting to a male accessory seem mysterious (top hat could show a form of defence) I think that Shania Twain has been represented in this music video as a modern female artist with in the country-pop genre. Although she is still appealing to the male gaze by being ‘sexy’ I do think that with the male band behind her and the male accessories she looks like a strong female figure .
