Monday Morning Memes: Summer Country Edition

  1. While the other memes were (as par for the course with FTM) on point, the last meme is wrong on so many levels. The meme in questions makes it look like Alan Jackson the Nickelback of country music would not approve of Luke Bryan and his current single (the bro-country song "One Margarita"), when the exact opposite is true. Alan Jackson (the Nickelback of country music) virtually invented the bro-country dreck that has become the bread and butter of Luke Bryan and other bro-country acts/hacks like Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt, Kane Brown, and Cole Swindell. In fact, those bro-country guys are simply the apocalyptic aftermath of what Jackson did to destroy country music.

    As I mentioned, Alan Jackson (the Nickelback of country music) practically invented bro-country. For example, look no further than Jackson's (s)hits like "Chattahoochee", "Country Boy", "Where I Come From", and the piece of crap mentioned in this meme - namely Jackson's butchering of Eddie Cochran's "Summertime Blues". In that song, as you can guess, the Nickelback of country music turned a classic country song into another awful bro-country song. It's not a cover, it's a desecration. Plain and simple. If Eddie Cochran were alive to see what Jackson did to his song, he wouldn't hesitate to slap him like how Moe Howard slapped Larry, Curly, and Shemp in the Three Stooges, just like what any dead country legend would do to Jackson if they could see what he did to country music.

    Despite Jackson's destruction of country music, I will admit there are still many good artists within mainstream country music, with Jon Pardi, Eric Church, and Chris Stapleton being the best examples. As for Luke Combs, I think that he's a bit overrated and much of his music is formulaic. However, compared to Jackson and the bro-country acts that his work spawned, Luke Combs' music is pretty decent, and some of his songs (such as "One Number Away" and his recent collaboration with Eric Church "Does to Me") are undoubtedly solid country. That being said, the impact of what Alan Jackson (the Nickelback of country music) did to destroy country music still looms large. As you know, Luke Bryan just had his latest bro-country hit reach number one, while Florida Georgia Line's collaboration with pop singer Bebe Rexha currently holds the record for the longest running number one country song at 50 weeks. I'll say it again - Alan Jackson is the Nickelback of country music.

    As for Alan Jackson's alleged cover of "We Dem Boyz" ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFOtWpul3ZY ), the video was filmed over an Alan Jackson concert to make it look like Alan Jackson was doing a cover of Wiz Khalifa's "We Dem Boyz", while in reality, he was really playing "Remember When" while a Florida Georgia Line cover of the Wiz Khalifa song played on my two Sony stereos (Sony MHC-GX450 and Sony LBT-GPX77) in the background.
