Default Country Rock

Over the past few years, country music has fused with modern rock to turn out some pretty good artists such as Toby Keith, Big n' Rich, Trace Adkins, and many others. I grew up listening to my grandma's old country music and bluegrass, and the classics of Hank Sr and George Jones and so on, but I think this new country/modern rock could draw alot more fans into country music that would normally shun it because of its southern "hillbilly" persona.

Toby Keith is an idiotic hick.

"we'll put a boot in your ass it's the American way."

YAY VIOLENCE!

I love Toby Keith. I'm not incredibly patriotic and my winterguard did a show to American Soldier few years ago. I now hate that song. But he writes some pretty funny songs. "I love this bar".

Country is talented..it may suck but its talented..none the less. I dont like Toby Keith and no because of his lyrics..which arent his..cause so someone else wrote them but because I just dont..but I like plenty of other crap that no one likes...

Default Lost Country Song Caper

on another topic...could anyone please help me remeber a country song that I've been racking my brain to re-find...I can't remember if it was sung by one of the Lee ann Rimes/Sara Eveans type divas...or if it was a one hit wonder...but it was all over the Country dial about circa 2004 or so...and had themes running through the song making comparisons to Leonardo da Vinci...and perfection...and masterpieces...and Einstein? and wisdom? Any leads would be much MUCH appreciated

Sorry, Ive only recently gotten into modern country music. Try posting it in the "Name That Tune" section. Youd probably get more responses there.

I personally hate this trend. The lyrics and vocals tend to be generic, the instrumental is usually underwritten and overproduced. I'd take true to the roots any damn day, though I do like alternative country because it focuses more song writting.
