    The new song from Big & Rich named "California" in my opinion is a good one.

    God bless you and them always!!!

    Is anyone here running across the new song from Trace Adkins named "Watered Down"? So far two stations in my area is playing it, WXBQ and WLNQ that is and I am so glad! I love Trace!

    God bless you and him always!!!

    So far I have not liked a single song on country radio in 2017. In fact I can't even listen anymore.

    The only one I enjoy is 'The Fighter' Keith Urban/Carrie Underwood/busbee. Not that it sounds country whatsoever, but it definitely sounds like something that could do well on the Adult Contemporary charts. Interesting, throwback sound to it.
    Otherwise, today's country sounds like a pile of crap to me. 95% of the country I listen to is pre-2000. Much better music, better artists (even though older country fans were sick of Garth Brooks) and not as much idiocy. Today's country consists of a few love songs and a ton of songs about mudding it up, jacking it up, partying it up, translate that into 'being idiots and getting in trouble with the law'. Different singers, very similar lyrics.

    Which is demographically appropriate for your age. Today's country radio is aimed mainly at women 25 to 49, with the bulk of it aiming at the 25-34 sweet spot. If you're older than that, it's likely that the music doesn't resonate. You're correct that in the 90s, some older country fans didn't like Garth or Shania. Today, they're revered as legends.

    By some. I still feel the same way now as I did then about both artists. Individual songs by each are good, and then there are some songs by both artists I don't care for and would have a hard time accepting on "classic" country radio.

    The following are also what I think are the best right now.

    "All About You"-Josh Turner
    "No Such Thing As A Broken Heart"-Old Dominion
    "Craving You"-Thomas Rhett
    "She's With Me"-High Valley
    "I Worship The Woman You Walked On"-Ronnie Dunn of Brooks & Dunn

    God bless you and them always!!!

    I just heard "Need You Now' by Lady Antebellum on the Muzak in my grocery store. I think the major complaint about this one was that it was played too much. It actually has good harmony and even a steel guitar (and that steel guitar is still there on a Hot AC format, or at least what I was told was Hot AC when I described what I heard on another site). My only objection is a screaming guitar at one point.
