So the country music genre has come to this…

…covers, that is, of Hall and Oates and Nickelback — and not even one of Nickelback’s GOOD songs, fer cryin’ out loud! I know there are people who will say, “it’s just music, can’t you judge it on its own merits?” The thing about it is, the term “country music” rightly means something to a lot of people and because of that things like the aforementioned covers come off to this country music fan as the audio equivalent of a raised middle finger. I heard Jimmy Wayne’s cover of the Hall and Oates song “Sara Smile” this morning (when I went OFF the presets again, Sabra — I need to break myself of that habit!) and it was like a car wreck. You just couldn’t look away. It’s worth asking why hacks like Jimmy Wayne and Bucky Covington choose to dump these steaming piles of crap on the country genre.

    What’s a Bucky Covington? I’m pretty sure there was a cartoon outer space rabbit with that name when I was young.

    My favorite was Bucky’s song based on that stupid internet meme about cribs with lead-based paint and mamas who smoked and what-not (I refuse to look it up)…That boy was born in the 1980s! The most dangerous thing he ever dealt with was Barney reruns.

    And, again, stay on the presets, boy! Didn’t you buy that satellite radio so you wouldn’t get annoyed by bad country music?

    (One more time, thanks for introducing me to KFWR–I haven’t heard either of those turds, thanks to you.)

    Indeed I did, honey. One of these days Imma learn. And yeah, that song was a bit contrived. Born to mothers who smoked and drank? I’m pretty sure MY mother didn’t smoke…

    If your honey has not been exposed to Jake (Hooker), Bobby (Flores), Amber (Digby), Jody (Nix), Miss Leslie, et al…you sure need to git er done.
    Jake’s new CD/title cut (Lost Along The Way) might be your theme song!
