    I like 1989 best this week. And this year is a distant last yet again.

    Jason Aldean hasn’t disappointed so far, both this “BIg Green Crapper” song of his and “She’s Country” have been among the worst singles on country radio, let alone make it to the top of the charts. I wonder if the pendulum will ever swing back to quality over “Starpower” and hype on mainstream country radio.

    The Cash song is my favorite this week. I’d take 2009 over 1999 though.

      Tired as I got of that Lonestar song, I’d still take it over anything that Jason Aldean has to offer. The Conway Twitty song is my favorite out of this week’s offerings.
