    I like to play guitar and sing, but I'm not very good. I now realize I could have been a country music superstar.

    Georgia County Line played the city I was living in last year and I happened to walk by the arena that afternoon while everyone was lined up.

    I don't think I've never seen so many good looking girls in one place. a few fatties with cowboy hats on but overall it was very impressive. I can see the appeal for guys to be into this shitty music.

    Hank III has done some pretty good country shit in the past ten years or so. But now it seems like pop and country singers have the same writers, they just sprinkle in some steel guitar and use an accent for the country shit. I'm embarrassed for the people who listen to it.

    I am not a fan.
    but this video is very interesting.
    who knew that the songs had many identical parts like that?!?!?
    It's like a formula!

    It's what glam metal morphed into. If you were to remove the twang it would sound like any late 80's/early 90's Warrant/Nelson/Bon Jovi/Def Leppard ballad. Back in the day those were the concerts you'd go to if you wanted to hook up with a hot chick. Now it's Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban, and all that shit.

    Thanks a lot, Mutt Lange!


    Oh well... At least he was responsible for Back in Black, Highway to Hell, and High n' Dry.
