    How have TEN years gone by since Gretchen Wilson’s “Redneck Woman?!” I always enjoyed Wilson, especially her voice on ballads. She was a real talent. It’s just too bad she got stuck in her shtick and wasn’t able to diversify into the female vocalist she should’ve been able to become.

    Overall, though, not a great week. The Tim McGraw song hasn’t held up at all and Luke Bryan’s latest is everything that’s wrong with country music today, especially in the treatment of women as brainless objects. Ugh.

      The John Conlee song is great, though. “As Long As I’m Rockin’ With You” has always been a favorite of mine.

      I always get a bit depressed when I see these posts. Here lately when I see them, I think, “Man, country music has certainly gone to hell in the last 10/20/30 years.”

    As for the Tim McGraw song not holding up, it was never any good in the first place.
