2words1finger: Personally I see her popularity among younger people as a sign that the younger generation has severely low standards.


I suspect you let your subscription to Tiger Beat magazine lapse.

mr lawson: HKWolf: There is a country music singer named Mac McAnally? Really? No picked up on this?

dude...Mac is one of the best songwriters alive. He is a lead member of Jimmy Buffett's band. Read up on the dude.


This was Mac's fifth consecutive Musician of the Year award. He's amazing, and has written a ton of songs made popular by other singers. A great guy too, don't miss the chance to see one of his shows. He's one of those twenty-year overnight success stories.

EyeballKid: Country, My Ass!

No mention of Jackson Taylor, Shooter Jennings, Kyle Park, Aaron Watson, Blackberry Smoke, Dale Watson, Hoss Howard and so forth goes to prove that not only has the Opry sinner, Nashville couldn't find country if it drove a train down Music Row.

Sweet jeebus - if you're not sick of taylor swift already, I don't know what to tell you.

In 2008, her albums sold a combined four million copies, making her the best-selling musician of the year in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Forbes ranked Swift 2009's 69th-most powerful celebrity with earnings of $18 million and 2010's 12th-most powerful celebrity with earnings of $45 million. Swift was ranked the 38th Best Artist of the 2000-10 decade by Billboard. In January 2010 Nielsen SoundScan listed Swift as the most commercially successful country (or country/pop crossover) artist in music history with over 33 million digital tracks sold. As of February 2011 she has sold over 19 million albums and 33 million singles worldwide.

Net Worth: $50 million

I'm sure she'll get over not winning anything at the CMA this year. Link

But still....Mac McAnally? The name is just....it's something he probably should have changed long ago. Oh and i'm sure he's never been teased about it. No way.

tnpir: Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert are fantastic and deserve those awards


I honestly thought Jason Aldean deserved it more than Blake but I have to admit seeing Blak and Miranda so farked up was refreshing. Blake even admitted he was trashed. It gave me new found respect for him.

Back in the day you had do prison time (or at least pretend you did) and be a Level 5 alcoholic with 4 ex wives before you were "country".

At least that is what all the songs led me to believe.

I was thinking more David Allen Coe:

You make a compelling point. (I laughed.)

A lot of folks in this thread seem to be missing another point, to wit, that they are nowhere to be found in Swift's target demographic, unless there are 'tweens and women under 18 with disposable income and iPods' among us Farkers.

As far back as I can remember there have been pop stars targeting the teeny bopper bubble gum market; I even remember resenting those pop stars in a petulant way when I was younger. I'm pretty sure that David Cassidy didn't give a rip about my opinion of him or his music and I'm pretty sure Taylor Swift doesn't either.

I believe the main reason Taylor Swift articles get posted on Fark is to give the community an opportunity to post pictures of her and make salacious comments, and I am totally OK with that. I do find comments that criticize her music a little tiresome as they typically are a display of misplaced outrage. It's like railing against romance novels.

Good comparison. I don't give a damn about either's music but I will fap myself raw while looking at pictures of them.

I swear to whatever unholy deity is listening that if I go into one more farking bar where some fat swamp donkey plays that god damn song on the jukebox or sings it for karaoke I'm barring the doors and starting a Sambuca fire.

Pop icons have a short shelf life by design. If I never hear about Taylor Swift again, I'll be ok. She's country music's Missy Elliot. I hope The Civil Wars have a long and fruitful career though.

Steve Goodman, a Jew wrote that song.

Coe wrote such timeless classics as

"Fark in the Butt"
"I am the man who made Linda Lovelace gag."
"He has to pay for what I get for Free"
"Don't bite the Dick that Feeds you"
"Masturbation Blues"
"Cum Stains on the Pillow"(about a boy and his dog)
"Itty Bitty Titties"

And a ton of others.

Not everyone lets stupid shiat get in the way of spanking it to a hot chick. It'd be different if I actually had a shot at women like that, but since I don't, shiat like that doesn't matter in the least.

A coworker listens to the country station and I've noticed an awful lot of songs are about beer. But at some point doesn't even the biggest beer-chuggin moron begin to think, "Hey, am I being pandered to?"

I love the farkers in this thread who think that country is exceptional in some way -

THE LYRICS ARE STUPID AND TRIVIAL - go back and listen to the Beatles' lyrics.

JOHNNY CASH IS REAL COUNTRY - how many songs did he actually write? A life of drug addiction does not somehow make you "real country"

THEY'RE NOT EVEN REAL COWBOYS - pssstttt - Ice Cube's average day does not involve using an AK-47. Never has. Dave Matthews does not have an actual satellite in his eyes.

THEY PLAY ON RACIAL STEREOTYPES - see Ice Cube comment above.
