Crap, I missed out on the big country music convo!
As far as my favorites go, I like Brantley Gilbert, Jason Aldean (Gilbert writes a lot of his stuff), Luke Bryan, Gary Allan, & Jamey Johnson. If you want to hear some REAL country music, give Johnson a try.
Most artists have some good music once you get past the stuff they play on the radio. Besides, I prefer slow songs & they're less marketable so they don't get much airtime.
SN: Florida Georgia Line has good upbeat songs, but some other good ones too.
Ahh so the Nickelback of country then. Country has sucked balls since Garth Brooks retired.
George Straight > Garth Brooks...
I don't know if I'd attack an entire genre of music based on your likely small sample size of the genre. If you think it all sucks, I doubt you listen to much of it. I could be wrong... hahahahah
You obviously don't know much about general social commentary then
