Why Country Music Was Awful in 2013

I was inspired to make this supercut after posting my 10 Best Country Albums of 2013 list for EW. A few commenters told me that my choices weren’t mainstream enough, and I thought, “Well, yeah, because so much of what’s on the radio these days sounds exactly the same!” So I decided to make a video to prove my point.

I hope country fans will stop settling for this derivative junk. I love a dumb party song every once in a while (including some of these!), but when they’re the only flavor available, they get old very, very fast. Here’s to better music in 2014.

Axel Martinez says:

I didn’t listen to country at the time but I love all of the songs in 2013. But i hated 2011 & 2014 country. I started listening to country on the week after the las vegas shooting. I knew some country artist, but only the GA singers like J. Aldean, Luke Bryan, etc. Now I know all the artist.

So there are common themes. That does not make music bad or awful. I think this is just being a snob with a stick up one’s posterior.

Brady Butler says:
