Because it originated from bluegrass and people have just changed the name and style a little. because people who lived in the Appalachian mountains were disconnected from society and lived off the land... or the country, that's why if you live in the country, your basically out in the middle of nowhere. people in the appalachians are the ones who invented country music
The difference between bluegrass and country music is in its roots. Bluegrass has its roots in the traditional music of Irish, Scottish, Welch and English music, but it is considered a sub-genre of country music. Country music has roots in the southern U.S. and is taken from American folk Western music.
