When Avicii debuted his electronic-country fusion at the Ultra Music Festival in March, he was met with criticism. Months later, he said the controversy helped him. "People's expectations were just lowered so much. Country and house? This has got to be a joke," the DJ-producer said in a recent interview. "Once you get over the fact that it's country and house, just listen to it as music, a lot of people realized it's pretty good." "Wake Me Up" is Avicii's proof.
