The Current Poop of Mainstream Country Radio: August '21

A poop emoji is negative, a strike-thru is positive.


The current Poop Rating of the Mediabase Top 20 is (-4) overall which is a 5 point improvement from May (the previous time we did this chart). The peculiar thing about this chart is the wide variance of quality. There are several truly excellent songs and several bottom of the barrel offerings. Usually, there’s a lot more mediocre going on. The worst song (just like May) is Dan + Shay’s “Glad You Exist.” The highest rated is Kenny Chesney’s best song in ages, “Knowing You.” The glacially slow pace of country radio is on full display here as half of these songs were also on the chart TWO FREAKING MONTHS AGO. Yawn.

Wrasslin' Country Reaction Gifs #51

♫ When the gun smoke settles we'll sing a victory tune
And we'll all meet back at the local saloon 

So, how was the bluegrass festival this weekend?

When somebody says they have an extra ticket for the Kane Brown show and wonders if you'd like to go

When somebody on MY Facebook page says country music is dead

♫ I wish I was a square so I'd stop coming back around 

Every time country radio takes a step forward (Carly Pearce, Midland), it takes 2 steps back (Niko Moon, Nelly, Tik Tok singers)

Me when the fake drums start on a "country song"

Typical female country singer radio station visit

Jerk musician to his merch guy before the show:

Ten Favorite Albums of 2021 So Far: 1/3 Report


 The usual disclaimer: Our year-end list will be staff-voted; this is just Trailer’s list.

It’s been a weird year and I’ve listened to more old music than I have new, to be honest. I’ve still heard a lot of new stuff and I’m pretty sure these are my favorites, but it’s entirely possible I’ve completely left out an album I listened to multiple times and enjoyed. Feel free to let us know your favorites or make suggestions! 


1. Morgan Wade - Reckless


2. Carly Pearce - 29


3. Dallas Moore - The Rain








(this one may end up higher, but it's new so I haven't listened a lot yet)


The Current Poop of Mainstream Country Radio: May 2021

 A poop emoji is negative; a strike-thru is positive.



The current Poop Rating of the Mediabase Top 20 is (-9) overall which is a 2 point improvement from February (the previous time we did this chart). The worst song is Dan + Shay’s “Glad You Exist,” but Sam, Dylan, Luke, and Cole also have terrible entries. The best song is Eric Church’s “Hell of a View” with Lainey Wilson’s “Things a Man Oughta Know” nipping at its heels.  The chart is somewhat stagnant, quality-wise, but there are hints of promise.
