    Country Music Today

    Post by Willows on Mon Apr 02, 2012 7:38 am

    Last night, I watched the Country Music Awards....or I should say.....I tried to watch them.

    Actually, I found myself flipping around to other channels, looking for something more interesting to watch on television.

    What has happened to ....'Country Music'......????

    At the Awards Show....there was...Marc Anthony...Kid Rock....Bonno...Ashton Kutcher...and other actors ...etc...etc... presenting awards and entertaining......and the new artists are the furthest thing from country music that one could imagine! Heck,...I don't even know their names...but begin with Keith Urban...followed by all of the other young artists.

    They should really find another niche and not call it Country.

    Country Rock????? What the heck is that?? Whatever became of the Vince Gills, Travis Tritts, Mel Tillises... George Joneses, Johnny Cashes, Vern Gosdens ...etc....etc...of COUNTRY Music !!! ???

    I am mourning the passing of Country Music as I know it.

    Does anyone else feel the same as I do?

    I feel exactly the same way Willows. We watched half or more of the Country Awards
    show last night and found it a disappointment.

    The program started off with Carrie Underwood, a few years ago she sang Jesus Take the Wheel,
    she is a talented artist but the song she sang last night was just a racket! It was a straight
    rock song and I could not make out any of the words and there was no melody.
    If they are singing rock type songs why are they on a country award show?

    I do like the Zac Brown Band and the Band Perry and some songs by Deirks Bentley but I miss
    artists like Alan Jackson , George Strait and Patty Loveless.
    I do not think traditional country will ever be back but I have hope that Scotty McCreey will
    continue to sing country.

    In past years I would have stayed up until midnight so as not to miss any part of a County
    Award show but last night I went to bed before it was over.

    I feel the same way. Country has been gone a long time. When they started wearing plastic cowboy hats, earrings in guys ears, I stopped listening to it. Especially when Underwood announced she was going to make a recording with one of the top rappers.

    Country Rock or Rockabilly is what they used to call it.

    The Eagles sort of had that sound and I guess you could say the original Country Rock artist would be TG Shepherd, anyone remember him?

    Oh Yes, I remember him. I just miss Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Twitty, and some of the others that came between Hank Williams Sr. and TG Sheppard (who was great).

    Guess Country Music is like everything else....too much change. Sometimes change is good sometime it isn't so good.
