Anyone else fed up with today's country music?

I'm not a country music fan to begin with, but I agree with the sentiments that music is going downhill, and fast. With that said, I was at the Fleetwood Mac concert last night in Columbus. If you want to see a band that, while old at this point, still knows how to make music, do not hesitate to go see this show. Christine McVie is back, Buckingham is a powerhouse on guitar, and all the vocals are still there. Run, don't walk, to go see this concert.

I like it all. However, for more of the old school feel, try some Rodney Atkins or Josh Turner. [censored], last I checked Merle Haggard was singing about drinking, kicking out footlights, drinking, women in faded jeans, drinking, etc all through the 70s and 80's. Also, Justin Moore is my favorite new artist, "Small Town USA", "Country Radio", "If Heaven Wasnt So Far Away", "Grandpa", etc, great stories. Good country is out there..

And Sara Evans (my personal favourite), Shania Twain, Martina McBride...etc. There have been quite a few "lookers" in Country music.

I gave up on country years ago, all it seemed to be was drinking, partying at honkeytonks and chasing women in no particular order.

Check out Michael Savage on WLS 890 AM he is on later in the evenings. Good dialogue , and says it like it is. When do you typically drive?
Savage is the man! approved
My TV went out on me a couple of weeks ago so I've been getting my fill of both Savage and Levin. Savage gets a little full of himself at times, but for the most part, it's good listening.

Everyone says this about all music! Eventually we all do not like change and say such things how things were. However the reality is people at our age/state of mind probably said the SAME exact thing when you loved the music.

I love the new/current country music,but it's got to be the "underground" type bands. Stuff that's so good the mainstream record labels will never pick them up because their music will never please the mainstream robots.

I'm not really a country fan, I'll listen to it a little bit, but I find it irritating how everyone suddenly "acts" country now. In high school I worked on a farm. Long days of hard work and hot sun, but I ended up enjoying it. Now it seems everyone I know is "country". They all have jacked up trucks, wear cowboy hats, spit tobacco and drink/party non-stop. I just have to laugh when they get out of their brand new trucks with shiny work boots. Sure, I have some of those same work boots at home, but they are anything but shiny. They actually have dirt on them from doing work. grin2

But was he drinking beer in a new jacked up Chevy truck? Was he like OMG, this is my song, derp derp derp derpa all night long? Was he turnin' up drinkin' shine on a tailgate with a pretty lil derp? Merle is missing some elements of successful kuntry-pop... 1. Beer ON tailgate/other open containers in vehicle 2. Turnin' up 3. Girl drankin' fruity kinda drank 4. Jacked up Chevy with lift kit 5. Small town
