Let me start by saying, good bye to my more conservative readers, you'll be missed. No really I do value you, I promise tomorrow we'll be past this post and back to our regularly featured broadcast :) Just kidding, it won't be that bad.
I was driving to work this morning and this was the song that came on, I was amused because I was listening to my regular country music station. I know you're thinking, they're a country act what's the big deal. Well, as I really listened to the song the first thing that hit me is how NOT country it is. Aside from the reference to a cowboy, there really is no other really country defining moment. Frankly they would be better to be considered something in the rock genre.
The next song to come on was so pop I felt like I was back in the 80's and Whitney Houston was still on top with "How will I know". Don't get me wrong I enjoy the fact that country has began to experiment with different types of music but if you listen long enough you start to wonder if this is country or just the new music junk drawer.
Why else would a hack (pardon my language) like Jessica Simpson attempt to break into country. I can explain, she has no talent and she's hoping no one will notice with the pop type crap she usually does that seems to be the new "country" trend.
Good ole George Straight would turn in his grave, oh wait, he's still alive. What is he like 200 now. I love George Straight, he is a great singer, the last of his breed to really make good music. Anyway, I'm off my soap box now. Glad I got that off my chest. :)
