    Good gravy, if Florida Georgia Line are going to stay atop the first chart for THIS LONG, they might as well just merge the two back together into one coherent chart. Say what you want about Johnny Cash, but at least when “Guess Things Happen That Way” and “Folsom Prison Blues” were respectively hogging the top of the 1958 and 1968 charts for multiple weeks on end, those songs could be considered country music.

    When I saw “Good Time,” I thought: “Wasn’t that George Strait?”
    I clicked on the video and it and it jogged my memory of the Jackson record. Not one of AJ’s best. King George’s “Good Time” from the beginning of this decade was better!
