Reading the article on locking fasteners, thanks for a good lunchtime chuckle after a fairly crappy morning.

As one that does not appreciate country music, I too chuckled.

Has rapping showed up in Country Music yet?

It seems to have gone full throttle "pop" and has vigorously ripped off the Eagles catalog...

(I don't listed to it, but I do hear it occasionally)

It's made it into bluegrass, so I'd assume so.

I appreciate country music. 99% of what is being billed as "country" these days is Top 40 pop with a southern accent. Do Not Want.

When Kid Rock is country, you've pretty much stripped the genre of all meaning.

FTFY. Kid Rock is actually halfway decent compared to the E36 M3 that I hear on the radio like FLorida Georiga Line or Jason Aldean.

Thankfully good music in the "country" genre is still alive and well, you just have to look a little deeper.

These are a few of my favorite things. I drive a diesel truck too. I don't hunt or own dogs, though. Still, sounds like I need to add Florida Georgia Line to my Archers of Loaf mix.

Or move to Texas. You won't hear any of the current crop of pop country on the radio unless you specifically turn on the top 40 countdown on Sunday. Of course you'll have to hear songs about Texas all day but I haven't heard a Jason Aldeen or Florida Georgia line song in a couple years.

There are no more country songs about tractors? That's disappointing.

I mainly listen to country and sports talk radio. Rarely listen the the hit station but the red dirt ( i think thats what they call it, ive heard it referred to as texas country) station has some good stuff.

As far as rapping in country music, corey smith does it quite a lot. Hes got a bunch of good stuff and some of it is quite funny, he has a song about road head.

I belive it is a jason aldean song where he mentions his nitto tires. Always cracks me up

Not true. "Country" still includes real guitars, bass and drums, and there's still both melody and a story. You may find the story simplistic, but it's still a story. Can't say any of the above about current top 40.

I await Birdman to do a country rap featuring a line about having an old school Chevy with a girl name Cheyenne in the back.

Probably because one day he went to get tires on brodozer and discount tire sold him some "Neat-o" tires. And that's all he could say the whole way home. "I got me sum Neat-o tars!"

Nitto makes some damn good offroad tires... see them on a lot of jacked up trucks around here..

Also, Nitto probably paid the song writer to put that in there like Chevy and Ford have been known to do in the past..

If anyone feels the urge to pick apart country music looking for the worst parts about it and not just listen to it because it's mostly upbeat and positive and makes you tap the steering wheel then go for it if it makes you happy.

Or just don't listen, that's an idea!

I don't like all of it myself but when there's talk about Mustangs and full-size trucks in mud, some girls dancing around a campfire and quite a few songs about tractors, I'm listening.

(But when I buy music it's 80's metal bands so my taste does not border on aficionado)

What passes for country music now is not country but is pretty decent pop music. I listen to it and like it but frequently grumble "that's not country" during a song.

Real country music...don't know where to even find it. Probably why I listen to bluegrass when I need a fix. Drunk old cowboys whining about their wimminz leaving them didn't used to be a big draw for me but now I confess missing that true American form of music. Bluegrass at least has murder songs.

That's a good point. Most of the people that listen to the country station here would listen to a top 40 pop station if that music hadn't become so awful. As it is if I can't get my XM app to play in a car at work I listen to either the country or oldies station.

Nitto Terra Grapplers are the go-to Brodozer tire around here.
