I may offend you with this post. If you have ever followed my tweets during various music award shows you shouldn’t be surprised.
I’m just going to come right out and say it, Tim McGraw’s song “Truck Yeah” is the perfect example of everything that is wrong with country music today. Dustin Lynch’s song, ” She Cranks my Tractor” is runner up in the death of music that means something contest.
I want to know when did music become mindless and homogenized? Why is it ok to have songs that seem to follow the formula of truck, girl, tractor, platinum record? When did lyrics like ” If I said you had a beautiful body – Would you hold it against me, If I swore you were an angel, – Would you treat me like the devil tonight? If I were dying of thirst – Would your flowing love come quench me?” Turn into “She’s the first one up the hayloft ladder, A girl like that’s what a country boy’s after, She cranks, she cranks, she cranks my tractor, She cranks, she cranks, she cranks my tractor” …
First one up the hay loft ladder? Girl sounds a little trampy to me, just saying.
Anyways, it’s Friday. Let’s enjoy a little music that allows us to use our brains. This first songs sums it all up pretty well and Cody Canada is hanging around in the background.
How about a love song? A love song that doesn’t involve diesel fuel, it’s possible people.
And a little anti- love song to counteract the last one…
Have a great weekend everybody. Let’s rock the rest of the day.
