When TS did her first song I was listening to a lot of country at the time. Between her and Carrie Underwood I decided I could not listen to country anymore. For every George Strait, Brad Paisley, Hank III, and Gary Allen song played I would hear 3 or 4 by TS or CU or another wannabe whiner. Turned it off and switched to mp3s and satellite radio. Then started listening to hard rock. Funny thing is I think some modern rock songs are more country than country is.

Then with the new country artist today singing how country they are and how they have a 4x4 and a dog and live backwoods. I don't consider that country either, just backwoods idiots trying to string chords together.

Wish I could find a country station in the area that plays Jamey Johnson, Rick Trevino, Dale Watson, and Amber Digby. Maybe some Heather Myles or Ray Scott.... I'm dreaming.... Oh wait. hello Pandora.

It's amazing how genre-polarized our culture can be. Just think about how many times you heard someone say "oh, I hate _insert a music genre that includes 1 million different artists_". We should know better because people do that crap with whole styles of beer or even something as blasphemous as "I don't like beer". You mean the one brand of one style you tried 16 years ago?

I like catching people humming a tune that was performed by an artist that they thought they hated that is part of a genre they thought they hated but that artist just crossed over just a little bit into another genre and they didn't know who was singing. Just listen to stuff, if it strikes a fancy, listen some more. I guess I just care who's dating who, who wrote the song, that the thing I'm hearing was actually a cover of some other way more worthy artist, etc when the sound hits my ears.

I think part of it stems from the fact a radio station will take the song and then several just like it and then repeatably play them over and over, instead of airtime of artist we personally feel are better and more deserving of the radio time. The entire problem is similar to Conway Twitty in the 80s, Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, Reba and Brooks and Dunn 90s, Then Kenny Chesney and Carrie Underwood in the early 2000s, and now it is Swift. The Country music genre has changed, it does every 5-10 years. However few people today would argue Conway Twitty was anything but county, in his time he was considered pop country. Jim Reeves with creating the Nashville Sound had the same effect in his time of the 50s and 60s. Isn't like anything that was being played in Texas or Bakersfield at the time.


And when I read who's dating who I immediately thought you where referencing Who's Cheatin Who. Originally done by Charly McClain....

Oh man, Carrie Underwood. She's got a song or two that I used to be able to listen to, but now that I've heard more of them I realize they're all the same. All of them. Some *******, somewhere along the line, screwed her over and now she has to tell us all about it. Again. And again. And again. He's a big meany poopy pants, and she's superwoman, great. Good for her. I guess she's just another version of TS, just angry about everything instead of sad and mopey.

I laughed when I saw that on my Facebook feed. And I'm surprised I forgot to mention earlier that Miley Cyrus has more country cred than Taylor Swift, she recently did a Dolly Parton cover. It's pretty good, much better than her old Disney garbage.

This was on Reddit. The title was 'Taylor Swift In A Nutshell'. I found it pretty funny...
