    I'm trying to watch the "ACCA" awards show on Fox at the moment, but this "country" music they're doing is as bad as pop. Funny, they're doing a "Best Male Vocalist" category now, but that seems kind of redundant since they all sound exactly alike.

    Speaking as an old school guitar chicken picker, this shit is awful. I knew modern country was bad, but holy shit.

    I watched most of it on fast forward. I have no idea who most of the people were. I watched Carrie Underwood for obvious reasons and Brooks and Dunn. I used to love country, but I guess I'm out of the loop these days. I mostly listen to XM Prime Country in th car. They play 80's-90's country and I enjoy that.

    I took a trip to Nashville a couple of years ago. Spent a rainy afternoon bar hopping on lower Broadway. All the bars in this area have a stage in the front window and if the place is open they have someone up their picking and signing for tips. These pickers and singers are from all over the country that packed up and headed to Nashville to live their dream of being a country star. I heard some amazing singers that afternoon, all better than the shit played on country radio. This is the breeding ground for the next country star, probably only one in a million make it but most of the people on the radio started doing something similar. They also didn't start playing that horse shit they are playing on the radio either, they played Hargard and Jones, Hank and Lefty, Waylon and Willie etc. If they get a shot a record deal they end up playing whatever crap the label and country radio tell them to play.

    Outside of the music stuff one thing that shocked me about Nashville was that I didn't see any Hispanic people working in my hotel or any of the restaurants I stopped at. Also the waiter at one restaurant when I asked if the ice tea was already sweetened said I must be a Yankee to even ask that question lol. Best fried chicken and biscuits I ever ate so I let it slide lol.

    Country music has morphed into the worst fucken dreck next to rap over the last 25 years. Its nothing like it was in the 50s, 60s, 70s and early 80s. Just awful unlistenable posers. all the old greats are dead.

    I like old time country music. The new stuff doesn't have a soul. It all sounds the same.

    Dale Watson is the Fucking Man! You'll never hear him on a top 40 country station, but he's better than any of those posers by a country mile.

    It was gay shit like Jason Aldean. I think Sturgill Simpson is more of a mainstream Grammy artist type, he's really not part of the whole Nashville crowd.
