    New country is dumpster juice. It all started to go down the shit tubes with the Information Act of 1996 being passed then all the radio stations across the country being bought out by 2-3 corporations. This act almost immediately impacted country music, traditional acts got cut(Johnny Cash) while acts like George Strait, Alan Jackson, etc were forced to change their tune. All country labels and radio stations were in lock step together in marketing the genre to a specific demographic, 18-35 year old white working class women, the kind of women that work at dentist offices or receptionists at an insurance company.

    If you notice today that every country song hits "key words" in the lyrics, radio, interstate, 4 wheel drive, jesus, pandering to women desperately. They all mention listening to the radio in their songs I think as a response to Satellite Radio and internet streaming rise, so if you sing about listening to radio station in your song you increase your chances of the radio stations playing your song 12 times a day. Modern day country radio stations are propaganda working mindless mark consumers. They know exactly what buttons to push, reminds me of a post somebody made in the AI thread recently about computer programs using data to figure out exactly what humans want to be fed on a deep psychological level, I think there is seriously a lot of that going on with country music. I honestly get into a bad mood whenever I listen to modern country radio for too long.

    We used to have a killer classic country station here in northeast Texas called 104.1 The Ranch. It was bought out by Clear Channel and they play more and more bullshit hits from the early 2000's than anything else, shit thatt has no buisness on a "classic" country station, shit that wasn't even good back when it came out, they are just finding the old stuff that fits their trigger demographic. It's sad.

    90's country though was really great. Especially love Tracy Lawrence, dude had straight soul in his voice, Time Marches On is like the best country song ever. Tracy Lawrence is underrated, dude straight owned the 90's with nothing but solid gold.

    I build houses for a living and whenever this song comes on the radio on a construction job shit gets real, motherfuckers start working hard:

    They need to fire the choreographer who did the dancing.

    And the guy that directed and produced that video.

    But I'm not into the song anyway.

    I do like some of today's country. But some of it is feminized which I don't like.

    Here are some country songs I like that you wont hear on the radio. Each song has a different flavor from sad, to rock based to even a little limp wristed if you're into that sort of thing.

    Outlaw country is pretty sweet. A friend of mine plays drums in this band. He was always a huge metal head growing up, but ended up in a band like this.



    These guys are pretty good too. I believe they're on the same label.

    Cunt tree music



    That's not even close to the worst song either. It's like bro country techno pop rap these days.

    Gimme some Jerry Reed or Merle Haggard.

    Although I will say the new pop country is entertaining in the way it is hilariously predictable. Find me a song that doesn't mention beer, jeans, dirt roads, trucks etc etc


    Here's a perfect example

    It's actually a pipe dream of mine to become a pop country star. I want to become rich with little effort involved
    look at my post above. Luke Bryan name drops Conway and T-pain in the same sentence...lol

    I would think if you could appreciate bluegrass you could also enjoy some hank williams sr,george jones etc. They are very good musicians and songwriters.
