...Cut Out Its Heart and Soul

  1. It's both funny and pathetic at the same time that you think that "Murder on Music Row" by country music destroyer Alan Jackson (aka the Nickelback of country music) is actually a commentary criticizing the state of modern country music. Why would Alan Jackson even want to criticize how much of a mess country music has become when it was none other than Jackson himself who was responsible for the mess that country music became? Not only is Jackson responsible for bro-country and the various non-country influences that have taken over mainstream country music like hip-hop, Drake style R&B, and 80's hair metal (especially in his songs "Chattahoochee", "Country Boy", and "Where I Come From), but it was also Jackson who was responsible for the still-prevalent stereotype that country music is made for ignorant trailer-dwelling white trash rednecks (see "It's Alright to Be a Redneck", "I Still Like Bologna", "Jim and Jack and Hank", and especially that stupid 9/11-exploiting song where he couldn't tell the difference between Iraq and Iran). To be honest, "Murder on Music Row" is no different than Gun Rack's "I Killed Darnell Simmons" from Key and Peele's sketch "Rap Album Confessions". And speaking of rap, not only has (as I previously mentioned) Alan Jackson been responsible for introducing hip-hop/rap and other non-country elements into mainstream country music, Alan Jackson has also doubled down on this. In case you don't know, Alan Jackson's "producer" Keith Stegall only assists in the production of his music. The real work is handled by none other than rapper Polow da Don. This is the same guy who not only produced that disgusting excuse for music that was Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda", but has also produced songs for other fellow rappers like 50 Cent, Travis Scott, Rich Boy, and Gucci Mane, among others. Wow, that is SO country, no wonder Alan Jackson is concerned about the state of country music /s. And Alan Jackson's groveling down to hip-hop and rap doesn't stop there, as Jackson has also gone and covered multiple rap songs in concert, specifically
    * Akon - Don't Matter
    * Wiz Khalifa - We Dem Boyz ( video here: )
    * Tyga - Hookah
    * Soulja Boy - Turn My Swag On
    * Soulja Boy - I Got that Sauce
    * Future - Mask Off
    * Flo Rida - Whistle
    * T.I. - Whatever You Like
    * Big Sean ft. Nicki Minaj - Dance (A$$)
    * Lil Wayne - Love Me
    * Drake - Make Me Proud
    * Offset - Ric Flair Drip
    * Waka Flocka Flame - Hard in da Paint
    * Shaquille O'Neal - (I Know I Got) Skillz
    * Fetty Wap - Jugg
    As the very man responsible for ruining mainstream country music itself, Alan Jackson has absolutely no business singing about how bad the state of mainstream country music is. Again, "Murder on Music Row" is bro-country version of Gun Rack's "I Killed Darnell Simmons" from Key and Peele's sketch "Rap Album Confessions". Thanks to Alan Jackson, to reference the late and great Merle Haggard, the good times are over for country music and the genre is rolling downhill like a snowball headed for hell. And to reference another deceased country legend, Waylon Jennings, are you sure Hank made country music look dumb and ignorant, collaborated with and covered rappers, or disgraced real country music? Indeed, if there was an uprising of dead country legends to put a stop to what Alan Jackson has done to country music, I'm pretty sure Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, and Waylon Jennings would go straight for Alan Jackson and strangle him like how Homer strangled Bart in the Simpsons.
