Hell is real...

I just saw an ad for some country singer, and it seems that the big hit in country music these days is TEQUILA MAKES HER CLOTHES FALL OFF. This is why I HATE country music.

Can I get an Amen?!

Rap is worse, they always sound like pirates, saying 'Yo ho ho!'. And Nelly wears a band aid over his eye, which is far too close to an eyepatch.

Think about it...

There is definately something good to be said about Paul Brandt and his blatantly spiritual lyrics. "That's what I love about Jesus...". Your right about the majority of the genre though.
After living in Brandon for 10 years I sort of became like the greater population and changed my thinking about country music. Kind of like Lot, becoming like the people of Sodom and Gomorrah, who was later rescued by the prayers of Abraham. My rescuers have been songwriters like Bruce Cockburn, U2, Steve Bell, and anyone else who puts more thought and effort into their writing than "Tequila makes her clothes fall off". Although, the spirit of temptation has tickled my ears since reading your blog. Perhaps I'll make a stop at the liquor mart.

So would Johnny Cash be bad just because is is country? He and Bono got along great. Made some good music together sometimes too!

Aaron - I hear ya. There are a few country artists that, to me, transend the genre. Cash is definitely one of them. My comment on country music is a generality, but I think you know what I'm saying. There are some songwriting liberties that country writers take that other genres don't. I guess I just don't understand how a song such as the one mentioned here can be a smash hit.

I guess there are two sides to most genres. My wife likes the side of country that is more, going to church down home on the farm stuff, not so much the let's get drunk and shoot stuff and take your clothes off etc. There is a lot of both. Bluegrass especially holds to that. (Nickle Creek rocks!) But I am more into the Bluegrass.
