I saw this on the west side of Nashville today.


I appreciate the effort of this guy and while not dead, country music is a long way from where it needs to be in my opinion. I stopped listening for a while when country went disco (i.e. Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton "Islands In The Stream", etc.). Then, in the mid 80's the tide turned for a while with newer acts like Ricky Skagss. Country music seems to come and go in cycles. I hope it returns to artist who can actually play an instrument, sing, and or write songs that come from their hearts about true life experiences. The below video sums up for the most part how I feel about "bad rock 'n roll".



                                           

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,and then there is the prophetic song titled "Murder On Music Row".



Though Larry Cordle wrote and recorded the song originally, this version recorded by Alan Jackson and George Jones was the one people remember the most.

    1. I knew many of the newer songs sounded similar these days, but that is ridiculous. You are also correct about the "gatekeepers" not being very country these days STxAR.
