Country music evolved from folk ballads brought to America by immigrants.It was decent music until asshole record company execs and producers in Nashville, Tennessee (wanting all the money without having to have talent)started pushing the"Nashville sound"akaNashville Clowns in the late 50s and continuing till today.Now all country songs are written by a formula.Whats selling,What topic is hot at the moment etc.. Country acts of today are told how to dress,act ,talk,what their background is ,if they are gonna be outlaws or good guys(stolen from wrestling promotors.also see:Retards)and what companies products to be seen wearing,eating,drinking and wiping their ass with.Most country stars of today are gleened from Kareoke bars and lounges.Most are from the midwest or east coast but company excecs change their point of origin to Oklahoma,Texas or Tennessee.Most "Stars" of today do not write their own material,they purchase the rights to say they have written it.(Travis Tritt)Pose with Harleys and try to act like outlaws(Toby Keith.Although he had to be pulled on a trailer sitting on a bike for his vid after dropping the bike several times and having to receive medical attention to get his head removed from his ass).Most acts of today are a sad lot of record company flunkies listened to by plastic people who buy into their bullshit swaggering and studio player albums(watch their road bands who are paid next to nothing screw up every lick out live)(I dont blame them).The modern day fanbase for these "Stars" of today are a fickle bunch(fame IS fleeting)and the commercial lifespan for these people is short indeed.Most end up broke,without their songs or right to even sing them in public anymore within a year or less.But dont feel sorry for them.They sold out and perpetuated the machine.If they hadnt sold out and wouldve told the record execs to write their own songs, modern country may have stood a chance.Listen to Old(late 60s-late 70s) Waylon,Willie,David Allan Coe,Billy Joe Shaver for a taste of country music unspoiled by the "Nashville Clowns"
