    This week’s #1 for 2017 exemplify why I don’t bother listening to country radio anymore. I would describe both the LBT and Sam Hunt entries as boring mediocrities – neither truly terrible but neither offering any reason to keep listening

      Well fans who grew up on 1960’s pop/rock music generally don’t listen to popular hit radio today–whether it’s hip-hop-this or “power”-that.
      Nothing lasts forever. Just because they still use the name “country” doesn’t mean it would.

      The San Hunt entry is a an abomination. The Little Big Town song I could live with.

    1967 is definitely the best year this week.
