Where is the country from country songs?

I was born and raised in the deep south and country music wasn't all that common. I now live in Montana and country music is everywhere. Only in the songs they always sing in a southern drawl and talk about Georgia red clay or Louisianan food. So the west plays country songs singing about the south but the south doesn't play much country music. . . what is going on? Is the country in the south or in the middle of nowhere like Montana/Wyoming/Dakotas? Where most of the cowboys are.

    Country is everywhere, but it's definitely Nashville-centric. We've got country music in New England too. "It's just a country as Dixie, though the winters sure seem long."

    When I was growing up long ago it was called "County and Western Music"
