There was always the small crowd that would rodeo on the weekend, but they never got any praise for it. I remember how shocked I was to learn that a classmate won a huge truck from team roping. He must have been more accomplished than any football player. Now, with shows like Party Down South, I think it's become cool to be country. It's a trend that will rotate again.

I personally think the new country rock is so popular now because radio/tv seem to be ignoring rock at the moment. Other than Imagine Dragons I can't think of a real band off the top of my head that writes their own music and plays their own instruments that gets any TV or award show time.

Fortunately I live in Oklahoma so there are plenty of great local country acts that don't need a studio to make them sound good.

Nice observations Michael, food for thought!

Peter, that vid was great! Love Willie, he has always puffed to his own tempo!
very slow and deliberate ;)
So Peter, lets write some lyrics...eh?
At the risk of being hung out to dry...I'll start

Country music used to be heard in little Bars
Twernt no damn raps and fuzzy guitars

Worse, how can it be worse...Jehova Jehova Jehova

Why... that kinda song's likely already been writ
By some 'poke chewin tabakky an needin t' spit
The only pot there's the one ya aim for
So's line dancers don't go slippin' all ov'r th' floor...

Well, you just wrote the whole 1st verse, so I guess it's a prechorus now? 8-)

Chorus:

So sing me a song, a real song, Boys
Not j'st words spoke over bunches of noise
Let the melody soar and the harmonies ring
Words with no tune don't mean a damn thing

Keepin time wi'the laundry, by the light of a tiki torch
