Monday Morning Memes: Alan Jackson, Wynonna, Kevin Fowler

Yeah, I don't know why moths are a meme right now either.

(Some people actually believe this.)

  1. Garth Brooks is not himself fully responsible for the destruction of country music, although he did introduce some pop and rock elements into the genre, and of course, his stage antics, like him flying over the crowd, weren't very country either. However, Alan Jackson, the man next to him in the below picture, has done far more to destroy and desecrate country music than Brooks could ever even dream of! It was Jackson who has disgraced country music so much, he makes Luke Bryan and Kane Brown looks like Waylon and Willie. You should know that it was Jackson who lived up to multiple negative stereotypes of the genre, such as taking pride in anti-intellectual parts of country life (i.e., in his 9/11-exploiting song where he said he can't tell the difference between Iraq and Iran), beer, trucks, bare feet, mud, and NASCAR. For example, look at his terrible excuses for 'songs' "Country Boy", "It's Alright to Be a Redneck", "Where I Come From", and "I Still Like Bologna". You'll think you're listening to a parody of the stereotypical country song! And you know how today's country music often tends to be criticized by older generations of country fans for not being country enough, and too heavily influenced by rap, EDM, rock, etc.? Well, guess who to blame for this? The Nickelback of country music himself - Alan Jackson, who introduced Drake-style hip-hop and R&B elements into country music (as if he hasn't defiled country music enough already, by having the balls to sing about his own crime on "Murder on Music Row"). Is it no surprise, then, that Alan Jackson's producer of choice since 2008 has been rapper Polow da Don, known for his work with various fellow rappers including Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj, Nelly, Rich Boy, Travis Scott, etc. Yep, this allegedly "country" songs was produced by a rapper, the same rapper who produced the monstrosity that is Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda". Like Billy Mays used to say - But wait, there's more. Could this "musician" possibly disgrace his own genre any worse? The answer is a resounding YES. Alan Jackson actually covered many rap songs at his concerts, namely:
    * Akon - Don't Matter
    * Wiz Khalifa - We Dem Boyz
    * Tyga - Hookah
    * Soulja Boy - Turn My Swag On
    * Future - Mask Off
    * Flo Rida - Whistle
    * T.I. - Whatever You Like
    * Big Sean - Dance (A$$)
    * Lil Wayne - Love Me
    * Young Greatness - Moolah
    * Drake - Passionfruit
    * Offset - Ric Flair Drip
    * Kendrick Lamar - H.O.C.
    * Fetty Wap - Jugg
    A blatantly bro-country artist living up to negative stereotypes of country music, complete with his music being drenched in Fairlight CMI and Autotune like deep-fried French fries drenched in oil. With garbage like this being passed off as "genuine country music", I wonder why country music is laughed at so often. And hopefully, Alan Jackson will not be remembered favorably by the ultimate critic itself - time. Sure, shitty artists like Nickelback, Vanilla Ice, Soulja Boy, and Lil Yachty were successful - briefly. But looking back, you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who still listens to any of those four seriously. It's just for nostalgia or for laughs. And there's no reason why Alan Jackson and his shitty R&B/rap music will be any different. I sincerely hope that this man who has built an entire career over shitty on the once respected genre of country music will deservedly be laughed at by future generations of country music fans as the ultimate disgrace to the genre in its entire history. someone ever asks you "Why is country music so hated nowadays?", point them to this mess of an "artist". Avoid Jackson's music at all costs. You'd be better off sticking a rusty nail into your ears.
