God I hate pop country. They occasionally play it at work, beyond my control.

"Where the beer is ice cold"

Don't know the song, but it is a recurring them in country music.

I can't really put it into words. Yes, you can drink beer cold. Yes you can like country music.

Country music's shameless pandering to redneck values such as pick up trucks and ice cold beer is so transparent.

Can you imagine a real songwriter writing about ice cold beer or the vehicle they drive? I can't.

Don't forget Taylor Swift always whining about relationships like an emo band, meanwhile she seems to have dated every young male in Hollywood...probably should be singing about why she is a train wreck.

What about Zac Brown's cold beer in his hand? That isn't pandering to redneck stereotypes, just a song about taking a weekend trip to Mexico.

What about at the ball park? Vendors are always shouting "COLD BEER!"

The fact of the matter is "Warm Beer" won't sell.

Because they drink BMC or even worse it has to be cold or it's entirely undrinkable.

Gee, let's see, country music tends to be identified with/originating in the south, where the temp is usually HOTTER than in the North in summer, I wonder if it could simple be, that there's SOMETHING REFRESHING, and ICE COLD thirst quenching beer on a hot day? Same with baseball in the summer, where in that instance, personally I'd rather have an ice cold pilsner/lager than a warm/room temperature stout any day.

Sometimes the answer is the obvious.

Im going to tell you all a little secret about me. I hate country music with a burning passion. Its totally irrational.

I recognize there are very kind, decent people in the world who enjoy country music, and I'm obviously ok with that, but I would rather hear the gutwrenching sceams of the eternally damned than country music.

The two words together by themselves make me mad.

Depends on what I am doing. And the type of country music.

But yes I like the gutwrenching screams of the eternally dammed as well sometimes.

God, I'm trying to remember this folk song by a fairly well know singer songwriter (John Prine maybe?,) who does this long rambling story song about something, with humorous patter, and as he gets to the end of the song he says something like "You know I just realized that I could branch out into a whole new audience if I just add another verse to this story," and he then throws in every country music trope their is...Like, My mother drove my pickup and accidentally ran over my three legged dog and on and on and on....It's pretty funny, but he skewers just about every aspect of the genre.
