country?

what the hell is happening with country music these days? some of you might not be so much into the greats and that's totally up to you, but i still like my willie nelson, Waylon, Merle, Cash... all the greats. I just can't seem to figure out what this crap is they call country these days. it's more like pop music with cowboy hats.

+1. It's NOT country music that we hear today. It's some weak top 40 shit with drum kits and a hint of a slide guitar. Kris Kristofferson is a pretty good singer too. Slim Whitman, Charlie Pride, Hank...

You absolutely hit the nail on the head - pop music with a cowboy hat. Though sometimes there ain't no hat, witness Rascal Flatts. There ain't no good new whiskey drinking music.

Modern country is perhaps the second worst form of "music" only to raeggaeton.

The problem began when they took the word "Western" from the moniker.
Country & Western is some of the greatest music ever made.
Country is just bad rock & worse hair.

Yup. We be on the INSTAGRAM trend too...
