Yeah modern day country is pretty terrible and thatís an accurate description. Yeah I agree with you though Iíd probably still rather listen to it than the same 100 pop rock songs from the 70s, 80s and 90s songs over and over again. Thereís some thatís tolerable, like this song, Must Be The Whiskey by Cody Jinks. Not sure if that gets radio play though.
