Another Indication of America's Cultural Decay: Country Music?

New Country Music Can be Blamed for White America's Decline

While we hear how rap music, Miley Cyrus, and Lady Gaga are destroying America's youth, we don't realize that new country music is just as damaging.  Singer Jim James says, country music is 'dumbing down the human race'.  He's right.  More on the story HERE.  While he has a slightly different spin on how, I have been pointing this out repeatedly.  In fact so has country music legend, Merle Haggard who explained in an interview with the News Observer:

“I've gotta be honest, I don't really listen to the radio at all anymore. Once in a while, I'll scan it and I don't understand what they're doing. I can't find the entertainment in it.” 
“Too much boogie boogie wham-bam and not enough substance.”
Here's a take from Top 4 country music hits back in September:
No. 1 "Burnin' It Down":
You slip your finger through the tear in my t-shirtYou stirrin' up dirty in the back of my mindYou keep on flirtin' cause you know that it's workin'
. . . then it only gets worse from there.

No. 2 "That's My Kind of Night":
You got that sun tan skirt and boots,Waiting on you to look my way and scoot,Your little hot self over here,Girl hand me another beer, yeah!
No. 3:
Damn pretty girl,You went and done it again.Ya gone and turned your sexy all the way up to 10.I never seen a ride seat,Looking so hot.Baby you rock,Hit the spot,Like a Fireball shot.
No. 4:
Hey girl, you make me wanna drive you home,Get you outta here and get you all alone.

 . . . one more mention of 'girl' or 'baby', and . . . well, "I might just go all country-crazy."  Unfortunately country music has gotten intolerable.  Hopefully some young singers can come along to pull the industry out of the gutter.

Just for fun, I like turning the radio to a new country station and counting how many seconds it takes to hear the word "girl" or "baby." You'd be surprised how quick that is. I even remember once not even getting to 1 it went like this: change-channel-'o-
