Franco-country is a musical style originating from French Canada. It is characterised mainly by the rhythms and styles of American country music but with the twangy Québécois Jouale accent. Sometimes the songs are sung in French, but not always.

Popular practitioners of Franco-country include Renée Martel, Gildor Roy, Patrick Norman, André Lejeune and Georges Hamel.
