My Grand-son now lives in Houston

My little grand-son of English stock, now lives in Texas, like all grandsons he is a bit of a tearaway, but has recently taken up, DJing. He is on www.hffm.co.uk as DJ Carter. Have you listened to this station. Considering he has lived in US just a few years He has a distinctive american accent, and I cannot understand him any more, Is this a true accent, for such a short time?

Update:

William K. This is not SPAM. The question is genuine. The MINI radio stn has only 60 teenage members, so back off. report the rubbish leave the intelligent alone

Update 2:

The base of my question related to "Adopted " accents, in a short time., and since he has only been in Texas 2yrs, I can' understand him when I tune in to the link

Update 3:

The boy is English.

    I would say that it is possible. Here in the South we have strong accents whether or not we want to admit that. I am from Louisiana and stayed in GA a few months working(about4) and then just visited here and there. Everyone thought that I was from there when I moved here to TX. I never tried to change, I just picked up stuff from other people. Some people are more country (for lack of a better word) than other's but in reality we all have some of the same language. Anyway, I would say it is possible for his accent to change no matter where he is from.

    Losing (or gaining) an accent takes longer than "just a few years" without great effort.

    I don't know why, but my suspicious mind believes this to be spam meant to drive others to a web site. I hope that this site does not download MALWARE onto other's machines.

    This one gets reported.
