    Steve Earle "modern country stars make 'hip hop for people who are afraid of black..

    Steve Earle has criticized male country music artists and said that the "best stuff coming out of Nashville is all by women".

    The legendary artist made his comments in an interview with the Guardian, where he also said Noel Gallagher was "the most overrated songwriter in the whole history of pop music".

    "The best stuff coming out of Nashville is all by women except for Chris Stapleton," he said. "The guys just wanna sing about getting ***** up. They're just doing hip hop for people who are afraid of black people.

    "I like the new Kendrick Lamar record, so I'll just listen to that."

    The man is a national treasure
    "There is a rumour going around that I have found God. I think this is unlikely because I have enough difficulty finding my keys, and there is empirical evidence that they exist." - Terry Pratchett

    Dang, this would have fit great in the "Some of these Pro Athletes say some of the dumbest things" thread. But he's not a pro athlete. But to SE's credit, his comment is dumb enough to support a thread of its own.

    i've thought the same thing about pop country for quite a while. all of the songs are basically "i get drunk and chase tail, then take my truck to church on sunday because i love jesus"

    Why would influences of hip-hop in country music be an indicator that the people who listen to it are afraid of black people?

    Do you hate it because it has influences from music made by black people? Or does it mean you're not afraid of black people? Or do you need to use a lifeline and call Steve Earle to tell you what the "hate" really means?

    Is there a safe space so I can so suck my thumb for a while and ponder the politically correct response?

    To me, modern C&W is like a really sharp fingernail on the chalkboard. I hear it at the gym and it just starts making me want to destroy the speaker so it will stop.

    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.

    I'll flip my car radio station to CW every once in a while, I enjoy the lyrics and catchy melodies, but one hearing is usually enough. I'll listen long enough to hear what's popular at the time but then it's back to Tom Joyner and DH Hughley and crew to get my regular hip hop.

    I normally crank up my Van Halen, AC/DC, Metallica, Judas Priest, Ozzy and GnR myself...but I digress.
