Toby Keith was, is, and always will be a big pile of shit.
I tend to agree. Well that era certainly changed everything. You went from 80s guys like Whitley who had modern songs, but were still more old school. Then the early 90s exploded with people like John Michael Montgomery, Garth, Clay Walker, etc.
gotta be honest that is a nice looking patio
I love the headline of this article.
Florida Georgia Line Plans to Ruin Nashville’s Restaurant Scene Like They Did Country Music
I should post this in the unpopular opinions thread, but I like few of those early 90s Toby Keith tunes. Like should've been a cowboy and ain't much fun since I quit drinking. That said, you are correct.
I didn't mind Garth's early stuff, but when he blew up, his music went to shit.
You talking about his weight or his popularity?
my fave waylon tribute is this
Junior Brown's Nashville Rebel is one of my favorite songs ever.
also garth was/is trash. i actually love a bunch of 90's country, but in the same way i enjoy Journey
He sold out when he put out Homeboy. His first album was fantastic. His second was above average.
I remember, as a kid, going to a Toby Keith/Sawyer Brown concert at an outdoor amphitheater in Atlanta. Toby was touring behind "Blue Moon" at the time. My how times have changed.
Best Bruce cover I've heard
Not even the best "Atlantic City" cover. This is...
The correct answer is below
Bingham had another one with Brian Fallon too I think that was really good
He opened for Ryan here he same night Beyoncé was in town. Brian was pretty funny abut that and just in general during his set
Brian Fallon is a great American
Is this a fucking joke?
He is putting on a free concert five minutes from my house Saturday.
Jean shirt, beard, looks like one of these new country hipsters
No, James. It is not.
Holy shit what an awful, awful take.
easy tiger - maybe there's a touch of hyperbole in my post.
i was insinuating that people our age think george straight is "real country." people that grew up with roy acuff would laugh at that. i think thats pretty easy to understand. hence the aforementioned hypocrisy.
I know what you're getting at, but George Strait is just a horrible example. Garth Brooks is way more appropriate for your example.
To your point of "purists" no one itt is making an argument that all country should sound like Waylon, but it's completely lost the basis of the genre. There's 0 storytelling in songs nowadays. Since the beginning of time country music wasn't driven by instrumentals, but what the songwriter had to say. That's no longer the case. It's a shitty formula where you plug in buzz words and spit out a song. No heart, no soul.
She has that Kelly Clarkson thing going where she is decent right now but gonna blow up as soon as she hits 25. You can tell there is a big girl int there.
I like her voice, but that song with that Honey Badger lookin dude is terrible.
Couldnt agree more. Even someone like Kenny Chesney had good stories on his first few albums.
I like his old shit. Shame he thinks he's Jimmy Buffett.
Country music isn't the sound. It's the storytelling. It's the ability to convey a message where you feel what the writer (preferably the same person as the singer) is feeling.
The reason that Stapleton, Isbell, and Sturgill are big is because Instead of Beer, trucks, tailgates, and sundresses, they makes songs about advice given to you by your father (Outfit) or people stuck in their circumstances (Something more than Free), songs about the birth of your son (Welcome to Earth), videos for songs like Fire Away about mental health and suicide or More of You about growing old with your spouse.
There's real substance there.
Yeah, that is fine and all, but.....
I'm feeling a little dirty baby, listen
My accent’s got a little twang, little thing
Little something, something
Always makes the ladies scream my
My name louder, reverse cowgirl
Little bump, bump in that trunk
All up in my new Maybach
That how well my snapback
You can find us where the party at
Agree with most of what you wrote but I would say there are certain telltale instruments that give country music its sound -- fiddle, banjo, mandolin, pedal steel guitar, Fender Telecasters etc
Sure, but the song was never "driven" by the instruments rather the lyrics
I know. I'm a music nerd so when he said "country music isn't the sound, it's the storytelling" I felt compelled to weigh in with a "well technically..."
Those instruments certainly matter in country music. But if you have them with no substance, it's still garbage. I didn't mean exactly that it's not the sound. I meant the sound isn't what matters, primarily, in that different artists have entirely different styles. But there are artists, namely guys like Isbell, who don't typically use those instruments so they're questionably Country/Americana/Folk so I get what you're saying.
Finally got around to listening to it and agree its meh. A couple good songs with heavier guitar. Some of its not good at all.
How was this show? Margo is so
Has anyone listened to Steve Earle's album?
Yeah, it's good. Not a classic or anything, but an enjoyable, easy ~40 minute listen.
Excellent. Margo was tremendous, just wish her set had been longer.
I watched her at ACL last year and nobody was around, was a great show.
She was really good when I saw her open up for Sturgill about 7 weeks ago.
Wait just a fucking minute. Margo opened for Sturgill at the Wharf?
Oh lord. Thats my dream come true
Nole0515 Norm Peterson
I have to know if there is a poster with both Sturgill and Margo on it. Did yall go by the merch tables?
I was on the rail for this show. She played some new songs, and they were fantastic. Here is one of them. I need her new album in my life.
I saw her in Chattanooga early March at a small venue. Only one person between me and the stage, and that old lady was maybe 5'. She jumped in the crowd during Hurtin on the Bottle. I was leaning into her and the mic singing with her. It was so dreamy.
Her Bonnaroo outfit was awesome showing those ass cheeks.
We didn't go by the merch tables. Headed straight to the Bama. Show was awesome though.
Alright snowflakes go to your safe space because I'm about to drop a hot take
I like Kane brown
I'm surprised Margo isn't bigger at this point. Midwestern Farmer's Daughter is a true classic album.
What's a Kane Brown?
You triggered bro?
