In a recent interview with TheBoot.com, Roberts talks about country music's popular following in the context of her ABC interview tonight: "Our special last year and anytime we have country music stars on ['Good Morning America'], they have a rabid following. There's just something about country music ... I like all genres of music, but with country music, it's always been true storytelling. A lot of us are going through difficult times right now, and there's something about the soul of a country song. It makes you feel like anything is possible and things are going to turn around."
