    You weren't issued your manual of politically correct responses when you came in? Hmmm, sounds like they're setting you up for failure. They must not like you.

    It's 92's fault. He hasn't fully indoctrinated me yet.

    Like 92 said, it's pretty much: chicken truck, cold beer, mud-digging on a Saturday, Baby Jesus on Sunday, lookin' at yer tight blue jeans, gettin' drunk on a Saturday night. Chew tobacco chew tobacco chew tobacco spit.

    It makes Nickelback back look entirely non-formulaic.

    And the drugstore cowboy .... that it sells.

    And, Bodhi, I forgot another member of my Needs-His-Ass-Kicked list: Tobey Keith. He's been on there for 10+ years running.

    LOL! I watched it. LOL! Good stuff. The same thing exist in hip-hop/rap music as well. The older rappers criticize (in the words of Snoop Dog) "these youngsters" for not only turning out what they deem crappy lyrics but singing about stuff they know nothing about. There's an interview out there (I'm sure it's on youtube) with Snoop and several other old schoolers (Ice T may have been one of them) talking about it. But this type thing is nothing new or limited to suburban white kids and "country" music.

    I guess I'm missing how his claim of it being for people who are afraid of black people ties into that point.

    Burham is hysterical though his audience is mostly teenage youtube kids. Went and saw him a couple of years ago at the Old Roxy/Buckhead Theater and his show was great. Definitely was weird though being a middle aged couple there that was not bringing our kids

    The typed word. I missed the tone of the joke (though I must say it was an interesting choice of words for a joke). Maybe I need to be in the "Some of these pro athletes say some of the dumbest things". But I'm not a pro athlete and don't even play one on tv. Oh well, I'll go sit myself in the corner or something. LOL!

    I started listening to Steve Earle back in the late 80s when I decided I wanted to give country music another chance.

    His brand of country would never fit into the Nashville homogenized variety. Because it's honest, doesn't pull any punches, doesn't kiss anyone's arse, and he says things that are really unpopular amongst your garden-variety right-winger country fans.

    If it wasn't for suburban white kids, hip hop would probably not exist. They have the most expendable incomes.
