Worst Things About Country Music

Everyone knows what country music is. Most people know it sucks. But the question is, what sucks about it?
The Top Ten
1 Lack of Difference Between Artists

The artists sound the same and the songs are getting less "country". The kid who won American Idol 2019 is the perfect example. Sounds like a hundred other country western singers, nothing distinctive at all. Yet they'll make him a star, singing so-so songs. Yawn. Country music has really lost it's charm and the singers have lost true uniqueness.

Country use to be good. Now it's just the same thing over and over and over again. A bunch of people with southern accents singing about the wild west and their tractors.

They all sound the same, it sounds like there's two country songs sung by different people.

Yeah cause all pop songs are so different and rap isn't all the same trash.

2 All They Sing About is Love and Tractors

They also sing about trucks, hot girls, various states (mainly states in the South, Southwest or West), beer, cheating, drunkenness, dogs, horses, rivers, etc, etc, it shows how far this genre has fell.

There was even a band called The Tractors there should be a band called The britches or the Wii little bits too..lol

This is true for almost everyone (Johnny cash is an exception in my honest opinion)

Just try a little more variety country singers!

3 It's Stereotypical

Florida Georgia Line is stereotypical bro country music. If I had to hear "baby you're a song" one more time, I'd cut my head off with a huge sword.

Cold beer on a Friday night, a pair of jeans that fit just right and the radio onn. Every country song ever.

In every song.

Basically they are just Modern Pop songs with words like Redneck, Beer, Trucks, and Tractors thrown in

4 Southern Accents

Well, coming from someone who lives in the south, that how people talk. Just like to me, people from Boston or New Jersey have completely different accents. It is a little rude to say that because that is how they were raised and can't change that.

The accents sound fake, they so not sound real. It sounds like they are pretending to do it.

The ONLY good country artist is probably Johnny Cash. And I love a lot of music...

They all Suck with Their southern Accents except Ronny howard Don knotts And andy Griffith, goodbye

5 Alcoholic References

If not talking about cheating their talking about alcohol. Being drunk and not knowing what happened is obviously bad and singing about it where younger kids can hear is just awful the world is already has too many problems. Though some country singers are really talented!

Country music has gone from a genre about life and culture in the rural parts of America to a whole genre that supports unrealistic ideas of partying and drinking. I'm all for having a good time, but that's ALL IT IS at this point.

I actually like country especially pop country but I don't like when they constantly sing about getting drunk, which is why Daneille Bradbery is awesome, well, one of the many reasons.

This is why I can't stand Dierks Bentley's hit single Drunk on A Plane. All it is is it's about drinking too much wine and whiskey on a flight to God knows where.

6 Sexual References

Compare country's lyrics to rap. You will definitely not be complaining about sexual references in country after seeing what rappers talk, not sing, about.

Every woman in a country song is reduced to a, "little crazy country chick." Come on already.

I love country music, but this is the one thing I don't like. The rest is amazing.

no thanks

7 Lack of Instrumental Talent

Okay I don't like country but this shouldn't be number two at least they play guitar instead of the macbook.

Always the same crap. There is no musical visionary in this stupid country music business

Country music is for a moron thinking he know music by listening to retarded artist.

Haha yall are really funny. You probably like the trashy rap everyone listens to now. Country is the best!

8 Bro Country

I dislike all Country but this is the worst its all about tractors and beer

9 Lame Lyrics

The most meaningfull lyrics

"I'm head over boots for you" what._.

Dude, it's corny
Country sucks
The older kind was music from the heart it was sad
These fools ruined it

10 Can Cause Suicide

Of course. I work at a grocery store where the music playlist is 80% country. It plays on shuffle so you can hear the same song 3 times in one night(I have :( ). My coworkers have joked about hacking the system so we won't feel the need to blow our brains out. It's particularly annoying when I hear customers or the dang cashiers singing along. If there were no consequences I would probably smack them into next week. Maybe they would come back with taste.

Listening to country makes me want to hurt others more than myself, but I would agree that I would rather be dead than have to hear any more of it.

I agree 100 percent my buddy plays country a lot now and every time we get to the second or third song I start thinking about how much better death would be.

This is the most absurd thing I have ever heard of. If someone commits suicide over country music there is a problem..

The Contenders
11 Lack of Manliness

All the songs make it like the man is lucky to even be around the girl. Sets up bad expectations and false beliefs for the women that men are 2nd rate. Look at the songs about a man waiting around for a woman to come home and how he's so lucky, she can wreck his plans, come home after being out with the girls... the VERY SAME behaviour that causes marriages to fail, the country songs make it okay and even romanticize it.

12 Country Stations

Why is this on here? If you don't like them then don't listen to them, they aren't bothering you.

My local country radio station spokespeople are annoying as heck.

Country stations play the same songs over and over agia

NJ has no country stations, only rock stations >

13 It is Slowly Becoming a Subgenre of Hip Hop

It has become all the annoying disco and hip-hop you couldn't stand back in the 1970's.

14 Boring Melodies

I think mine should be added because I'm sure that this one isn't on the list

15 It is No Longer Country

"Country" music is no longer country. Go hear anything from Johnny Cash, Hank Williams Sr., Waylon Jennings and compare it to today's garbage that is called "country". It is nothing like the classic country that has survived and has been loved for decades.

This is my biggest gripe about current country music. It is not country, it is crap rap. Give me the old classics.

Yes it is no longer country but you all got phone and stuff go listen to real country but the way you said the southern axsent it is a staple in the South you guest some Yankee that we can't under stand go Alison to hank Williams,hank Williams jr,Johnny cash, and Alabama

16 Country Rap

Pop wrapping is any better at least they have manners

Refer to Luke Bryan, Kick The Dust Up


17 It's Completely Off-Base

Country music used to be about a man and a common mans problem, which I personally don't mind but, now it's shifted from that to a skinny jeaned sorority girl fantasy.

18 It's Inappropriate

It is a bunch of baloney

19 All They Sing About is a Girls, Trucks, or Drinking

The ACTUAL lyrics to Hope On The Rocks

I'm a bartender
I'm a bartender
I'm a bartender
I'm a bartender

20 Criminal References

I mean, Eminem rapped about killing his wife or killing strangers because of their sexuality (not that I'm condoning this or defending him). But Carrie Underwood has made a song about killing her ex, and she is seen as an angel that can do no wrong. If that is the norm in country music, I do not want a part of it.

What, this is country not hip hop laugh out loud... Just came from the same one about hip hop and this one looks a lot like it except instead of annoying accents, wait, that one's on here too

I'm pretty sure Johnny Cash made a song about kill a man just to watch him die. What is that not a crime? Or is it just rap music listen to lyrics you dicks

21 It's Getting Worse Every Day

If Carrie Underwood's bubblegum country (specifically, country music made for the preteen pop audience) isn't bad enough, there are Luke Bryan and Florida-Georgia Line to perpetuate the bad stereotypes of country music and shamelessly exhibit them.

Old country was better

Beer and tractors and whiskey
#winner I got 1 million dollars in country tunes #winning #wow #country

22 I'll Never Be Old Enough to Listen to Country Music

More like I'll never be illiterate enough to listen to this rubbish

23 Completely Low Class Accents and Lyrics

Many of them couldn't speak English well even though it's their FIRST LANGUAGE!
