Huh. Would you look at that.
Isn't there some unwritten rule that you have to at least know how to play an instrument before you are able to be called a Country Singer?
And I *know* there's a written rule prohibiting gay African-Americans somewhere.
He's not gay, he impregnated a 14 year old in 1999.
Which actually explains why he's accepted as a country singer.
Black people don't follow rules, they follow the code of the jungle.
That law has been revoked - one of the biggest stars in country right now is goddamned Hootie. Yes, from the Blowfish.
(furthering my long-held hypothesis that pop country in fact operates ten-fifteen years behind whatever is mainstream for pop-rock. In ten years, everyone is going to be doing a Creed thing.)
Country used to be an actual genre, but following Urban Cowboy and Garth Brooks everyone realized the real cash was in being as mainstream as possible. Now the actual country musicians hide out in the "alt country" scene, or something like that, and what's left in Nashville is assembly line bullshit like this. I'm surprised they bothered to find a steel player to back him up. Who even knows what that is anymore?
And hopefully it goes without saying, but objectively, apart from any knowledge of the genre, who Sisqo is, etc, this is just terrible. He's a bad singer, the drummer's a shitty drummer, the songwriter would have failed at writing a greeting card, and so on down the line.
It has nothing to do with personal taste or liking or not liking the song. As someone trained in this I am saying that this whole thing is half-assed. They shouldn't have found work, and yet there's a fucking TV crew there. Why? Why not give CWC a sitcom while you're at it?
Eh. Sorry, carry on.
Huh. I thought he died after he threw himself into the Bajoran fire caves.
Well while he survived, it appears his fame did not.
Probably overheard in the audience: "why can't they all be this nice instead of doing that thug stuff"
I just don't think that is his real hair color. Nope.

I think this is absolutely (and unironically) brilliant. Unlistenable, but brilliant.
