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.
When she first hit the airwaves, singing songs about 'love', I thought, "Honey, you're 17. You have no idea what you're talking about".

Then the girl I was dating at the time bought her CD, and one song in particular I noticed a line was different between the CD and the radio edit that showcased her immaturity (and that of the entire production staff), and that pretty well finished it for me.

We watched it too. Here is how the conversation went...
Me: "Who is that?"
Her: "Taylor Swift"
Me: "Who? Never heard of him."
Her: "It is a she and she is pretty famous."
Me: "I am going to brush my teeth. Let me know when the countdown starts."

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.
Heck yes and a big thumbs up on your music choice. I still use that line from Chris Ledoux in the song Copenhagen " Makes conception a wonder and childbirth a pleasure" Yup that is my beer

We're pretty lucky here in Milwaukee because our college station does a Friday show where they play awesome, awesome old REAL country music. Check out the archive. http://www.wmse.org/archive/?dow=Fri&hour=090

(Skip ahead a minute or two - the archive shows start with a minute or two of the previous show.)

I have always found TS annoying. My SWMBO and oldest daughter were enamored with her when she went mainstream a few years back. She lost her charm in their eyes when she started dating everyone under the sun.

It seems ****ry music (i'm dropping the O because it's lost it's balls) is going through it's yacht rock phase in my eyes.

I think she is a genius. She sleeps with famous guys to get song ideas and leverages that into a HUGE amount of money. I wish I could do that.

I've had a theory that for about the past 5 or 10 years country is nothing more than mid-90's alt rock with a twang. Seriously, go listen to Gin Blossoms, Toad the Wet Sprocket, or Hootie and the Blowfish and tell me I'm wrong. I dare you!

Hootie is "country" now, he sounds the same. I didn't like it then, don't like it now.
