    I like the Dan Seals song a lot, but the Haggard song is the real pick this week.

    The less said about this year, the better.

      I agree, in fact “Sing Me Back Home” is about as good as music gets, period

        The Merle song is, of course, a classic, but sorry, I’ll take this year’s song from Maren Morris over Dan Seals’ “One Friend” any day (though I’d take it without the dialogue interruptions in the video).

          You choose shallow redundant pop schlock with an annoying and TOO LOUD drum track over Dan Seals perfectly sung ballad with superb lyrics? Wow!

          The horrible video for the boring Maren Morris song is a joke. Features yet another idiot thinking that they are going to be famous in our fame-obsessed “look at me” culture. A story line about a woman getting an education to achieve a realistic career dream would offer a more inspiring message than the stupid fantasy of becoming a “star.” Reba McEntire’s “Is There Life Out There” video would have been a good template for Morris to consider.

          Kenny–I’ll withhold any response to that comment. It’s just so perfect, and so “you” that why mar it by engaging it any further? Thanks.
