The world turns, styles move on and if you live long enough come back around. I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be around for the next turn of the wheel. My idea of country music is from the 1930's through the mid-70's and then it pretty much ends (for me), although I do like George Strait a lot. Oh yeah, and Asleep At The Wheel, Tommy & Jake Hooker and a lot of the other folks keeping Western Swing alive.

This pretty accurately sums it up for me.....

I have Sirius/XM and listen to Willie's Roadhouse and occasionally the Bluegrass channel.

I'm not knocking the musicians, just I wish they would call the current Nashville music something other than "Country Music".

I'd be happy if they called it "Stadium Country" current Nashville music has more in common with Stadium rock from the 70s. It's not about dancing, and I've always thought that REAL country music fans vote with their feet by getting up and dancing.

That's what Bob Wills thought. He never let anyone forget that the Texas Playboys were first and foremost a dance band

I call that formulaic Nashville stuff : "Nashville Pop".
That's what it is. Pop music with drawls and cowboy hats.
The musicians are, mostly, very top notch. They figured out a way to make a pay check.
Good for them . But it's not country music. Maybe I should call it "Nashville Pop for Cash". But then the Cash family might take offense.
NASHVILLE POP.

One of my favorite Merle lines, "so-called social security"
