Honky-tonk?

Katie sometimes enjoys listening to country music. I enjoy it less. One phrase that has continued to intrigue me is "honky-tonk." Is it a noun? A flavor? A derogatory remark? A color? I had no idea.

I looked it up on the almighty Wikipedia, and I found out that it is a bar.

How anti-climatic.

So, when used to describe music, it becomes an adjective, right?

You could have listened to one song and gotten the answer: "American Honky Tonk Bar Association," courtesy of Garth Brooks.
