More bullshit on how alt.country (or as I like to call it GOOD country) is dead. Basically cribbed from the New York Times article. I say good riddance. It was always a marketing and branding disaster. I say we dig in our spurs and claim the banner of Country back from the Big & Rich pop-idiot sideshows and milquetoast ballods of Kenny Chesney. There are planty of people not officially sanctioned by Music City or whatever their playing off the list at corporate 102FM. Fuck the alt.country moniker and fuck the crappy musical culture that caused the balkanisation in the fist place. It’s time to name pop country what it is…shit.
