Facts about mainstream country through the years:

-Chris Stapleton is indeed very good.
-Zack Brown is alright but not great.
-Brad Paisley and Keith Urban are good guitar players but their music is terrible.

100%

-some of the neo-trad guys of the 90s like Allen Jackson and Doug Stone did real good honky-tonk revival.

Yooo. Now I got some sick stuff to listen to. Ty

-otherwise modern mainstream country (90s-today) is terrible.
-mainstream country of the 60s-80s was far more terrible.
-mainstream country producers from that era should be flogged for their tasteless use of reverb.
-80s country ballads are even worse than 80s pop ballads.

True

-Johnny Cash had some good songs but 90% of his catalog is horseshit.
-Merle Haggard had less good songs and like 95% of his catalog is horseshit.
-Willie Nelson is somewhere between Johnny and Merle.
-trucker country of the 70s was the best country but largely ignored by the mainstream.

agre


-Hank Williams is the only country musician with a solid discography all the way through.

Yes

-Even someone like Ernest Tubb, who was great, had some real bad songs.

yeah



Now I'm honky tonkin

I think the entire conversation about "contemporary" music is becoming obsolete. All kinds of music are being made, and all of us have access to all of it all the time virtually free. When people talk about what's "contemporary", they're talking about what's on pop radio, which stopped being the monolithic face of music a long time ago. There is contemporary music you like--go find it.

(The Beatles are pretty great, though.)
Death to Ovation haters!
