English Pronunciation: Country

I've heard the word country mispronounced so many times. Instead of the proper pronunciation, I hear it being said like this.

Listen to the proper pronunciation here.

I think that some pronounce country with an "au" sound instead of the proper "u" sound because they think the "ou" in a word automatically means an "au" or "ou" sound. This is not true. The word country is an example.

Love your country, everyone!
