So THAT’s (probably) who said it first.

There have been people here and there who have been bemoaning the state of country music for a very specific attribute. I kept hearing it come up again and again, and it struck me not long ago that I had heard it before. Tonight it came to me who said it first.

Who said it first? Gary Allan. What was the attribute? Well

To me, country music used to be about what happened during the week. It wasn’t so much about party stuff. Now it seems to be about what happens on the weekends.

He said this in 1998 — 15 years ago, when things weren’t nearly as bad as they are now. I would dearly love to know what his opinion would be now.

For the record, the quote in that interview came directly after a few comments about this song. Which should tell you exactly where he’s coming from.
