    I heard it drivin to work, on the Country radio station, so that's the name of that tune.

    BTW: I heard this song about a guy whose woman makes him choose between her and fishin. Fishin wins. Anyone know the song?

    I've been noticing this for a while. Rock is no longer mainstream, and pop has little to no guitar. That's the main reason I support modern country.

    But I still listen to Classic Rock more.

    "Mind-Numbing Pre-Apocalyptic Schlock". I've got a real short one but can't say it here.

    I read these threads but rarely listen to the YT clips, did catch several of these. People listen to this stuff? Absolutely hilarious 'lyrics'.

    If Jeezus walks up to me in a bar tonite I ain't gonna be sippin' my drink. It's gonna be choked and then we'll start having doubles. He's buying!

    I always took Him for a wine drinker. Bet He drives a Silverado, though.

    Only if it's poorly lifted, and driven down a back road to the river to get drunk with a few honeys.

    If all it's good for any more is this utterly vacuous musical genre, then let it die.

    I'm thinking this thread could use just a bit of a diversion.

    Edit: Just a reminder that there is new country music out there that does not sound like it was assembled by a Nashville industry focus group. Not meaning to hijack the thread.

    BDLH, the song you asked about earlier was Brad Paisley's "I'm Gonna Miss Her", believe it or not.
    And I'm glad you guys are digging the mad beats I've been programming for Nashville. Odd that I'm the only guy out there coming up with these tricky rhythms on midi for the country guys. Just you wait until I pull out the old 808 stuff. It'll blow yer minds! :D

    I don't know what you'd call the song in question, but this is the first thing it brought to my mind:

    Hick Hop is pressing on without Bubba Sparks, but it has Big Smo for the wanna-be-ghetto white boy persona.

    Techno Country is moving forward because the engineers, producers, and acts have discovered all the toys like drum machines, synths, synchronizers, midi, auto tune, vocoders, etc. The young audience does not seem put off by it.

    I actually kind of like it, until the EDM drums kick in about 1:20. And the lyrics aren't completely stupid, just a little stupid. I can kind of dig it.

    But seriously, shut up about your damn truck.

    wow, this may as be pop or something they would put on MTV before they stop playing music. hah. i grew up to old western, and out law country music. had no choice my grandma grew up with that kind of music. anyhow, this bro/pop country is way over produced for me i guess. granted im not the biggest fan of country but i do like some of the older stuff i grew up with. maybe you have to be drunk to get this bro country. not sure why auto tune would find its way into a country song. o well, this about as much thought i want to put into it. time to listen to some David Allen Coe.

    Yes, hip-hop and rap can be about anything. Canadian rapper Shad has a rap about the immigrant experience -- and the guy has a master's degree! It would be nice to see more country songs that weren't about the usual suspects.
