SWMBO wanted to watch the countdown so we turned on the TV just in time to see Taylor Swift perform two songs in a row. I used to like her when she first came out, then not so much, but ever since "We Are Never Getting Back Together" was released I've despised her. That and the other one (I don't remember the name 'cause I don't care) are just plain awful.

This performance was especially awful if for no other reason than the fact that she performed live the part of the studio recording that was accidentally recorded while she was taking a phone call. Am I alone in feeling like this or am I just being an a**hole?

Yeah, all the stuff coming out of nashville is crap. Country music is just plain awful now, bluegrass on the other hand has made an awesome comeback.

I thought he was talking about Taylor Swift? When did country get brought into the thread?

I still agree that one of her ex's should write a song titled "Maybe the problem is you"

I believe sarcasm was intended by the use of the quotes around the word "country." She started out country but an resemblance to country in her music is long gone.

I never could stand her. When she came out she sounded like a little kid singing songs written by a little kid. Not even a talented little kid.
There isn't anything country about her or 99 percent of the crap that comes out as country today. Mostly adult pop music with a little bit of teeny bopper crap like Taylor Swift thrown in.

She's like watching your kid perform on stage... America's sweetheart, gotta root for the poor gal, she's doing her best and succeeding.

She might be doing well for herself, but that doesn't change the fact that she is horrible. Her success is built on being cute. Her audience is a bunch of kids.

It's fine that this crap exists and it's no skin off my nose, but I do wish that I would never have to hear it again.
I do also wish that country stations would play country music instead of this adult pop junk.

Chris Ledoux, George Jones, Ray Scott, George Strait. Not Taylor Swift, kid rock, hootie and the blowfish, keith urban and so on.

The trick is to just look at her; if you actually listen, it ruins the whole effect.
