a prize only awarded once before to Country legend Garth Brooks

And that says pretty much all you need to know about it.

Yes, exactly, artists that cross lines, break boundaries and bring in new fans who discover other country acts should be shunned.  It's the only way to ensure growth within the industry.

Burn the witch!

/Niece listens to George Strait now because she did the George Strait All Star Concert
//Realize that even George Strait is "country" enough for Fark

"It recognizes artists who take the genre to a worldwide audience"

I guess Country Music sounds a lot more like pop music than I would have thought.

I can appreciate Taylor Swift for her artistry, just find it funny she is "country". I always thought of her as a Avril Lavigne 2.0.

You appreciate the "artistry" of someone who produces shallow melodramatic songs that unironically compare relationships to Romeo and Juliet?

i LOVE awards shows. well, about 1/3 of each of the broadcasts i watch. you can see some really good one-off performances, like dave grohl playing drums on a new zac brown song, or alan jackson and george strait paying tribute to george jones.

and jennifer nettles' cleavage.

Kenny Rogers was given a lifetime achievement award, telling fans "It's been a hell of a month."
He continued: "The (Country Music) Hall of Fame last week, this this week. I can't wait to see what's coming next week.''

those are still "made up" awards. highly honorable, but made up none the less.

and, like the awards or not, you do indeed have to do something to get these "made up" music awards. no, you don't have to go to war or anything like that, but not every honor is of "war hero" proportions.

your perceptions of her music aside, she writes and arranges her own music, that's gotta count for something. Plus, she's barely twenty something and seems to have genuine interest in practicing her craft. i've only heard a few of her songs but of the ones I have heard they are well organized and executed - that's not easy.

Thank you for your constant contribution to mediocrity.  May you someday receive a Pinnacle Award for it.  At an awards show you won't care about.

Dave Grohl smashing it up with Zac Brown made up for that foolishness. Nothing can make up for Hunter Hayes.

MFAWG: Dave Grohl smashing it up with Zac Brown made up for that foolishness. Nothing can make up for Hunter Hayes.


i can completely understand the hunter hayes hate...he sings pop songs with a seizure-like look on his face. however, i gained a TON of respect for him after his interview on "song travels" with michael feinstein. hunter wrote, sang, and played EVERYTHING (30+ instruments) on his debut cd. i somewhat like the songs he's had as hits, but that really made me appreciate what went into them. no songwriting and production team...hunter and a producer (and i'm sure a recording studio staff and such) and a few months of hanging out in the studio.

zac brown is one of my alltime favorites, though, and having grohl up there with him was much fun!

More like a knock-off than a 2.0, really: Lavigne came from punk. But I think you're onto something with the basic idea of comparing them: they both took a non-mainstream genre and pop-ified it basically beyond recognition.

I've seen artists draw their own pictures, and they still suck at it. All that means is that you're responsible for your own failures.

not sure if serious
that's keith urban. he's australian. so no "billyraybobjoe". perhaps there is an aussie equivilent name, though. not that i care, really, just checking to see if you know who these people are or not.
when keith first started performing on tv, my first thought was "how long is this long haired rocker going to last in country music?" well, apparently he's a favorite. and the man can rip up a guitar neck!
and his wife is the also-australian nicole kidman

as for the shirt-unbuttoned-down-to-the-naval, that is tim mcgraw. one of my least favorites for a number of reasons, but beloved by country fans, and especially by the women. hence the shirt-to-chest ratio. his wife is next to him in the fancy gown...the also-talented-and-hot faith hill

Also point of note, if at 46 I look like Tim McGraw and was banging anything that comes close to Faith Hill, I might not even have the decency to put on clothes AT ALL.   You know why I'm here and you know what I'm doing, so here it is.

heck if i looked at 26 like tim looks at 46, i may be in a similar situation. or i'd be dead from exhaustion from all the poon i'd be getting. yes i said poon. doesn't matter, i look NOTHING like tim. even his caucasian skin is better than my caucasian skin.

Country music hasn't been country since Hank Williams.  It's pop-lite for idiots.  Not surprising to see Swift on top of the retard pile.

Soup4Bonnie: Country music hasn't been country since Hank Williams.  It's pop-lite for idiots.  Not surprising to see Swift on top of the retard pile.


tired old argument is tired and old.
yes, there is plenty of "pop country" that many wouldn't consider "real" country.
there is plenty of "pop rock" that many wouldn't consider "real" rock.
so on and so forth.
yet there is still plenty of what can be considered "real". problem is "pop" (short for POPULAR) is, by definition, what gets played/heard/seen much more than the "real/traditional" stuff.
and it goes back at least as far as hank's time, if not before, in country music.
