Country Singer/Professional Wrestler Equivalents 5
Stoner? Probably. Beast? Definitely.
Large. Does the same thing over and over but still very popular.
Loves playing the heel. Very talented. Will talk shit at a moment’s notice.
Awesome. Takes up for herself. Most people don’t know who she is yet, but they will.
Tall. Annoyingly positive to the point of ‘go away’ heat.* Old.
Awesomely talented, but not as ‘over’** as they should be.
Not very good at anything, but always seems to be hanging around.
*Go away heat - when fans are legitimately not entertained and want the performer to stop it.
**Over - generating a large reaction from the fans.

Every Pop-Country Artist’s Next Album to Be “Country as Hell”
“We’re even bringing in a violin player!” smiled Kane Brown, in studio working on his proper follow-up to 2019’s Experiment. “It’s gonna be country as hell!” Brown was said to be drinking moonshine from a jar and wearing steel toe work boots in the vocal booth to get into character.
Thomas Rhett recently released the album Country Again, Side A, which features two songs with the word ‘country’ in the title. “Yeah, we saw the writing on the wall…. errr, I mean, we felt that this was the natural evolution of my sound.” said Rhett. Critics and naysayers were skeptical but modestly surprised with the results.
The changing tides in Nashville have even spurred a peculiar support industry - the “country life coach.” Consultants have hired on with several pop-country artists to help them work on their authenticity, which seems ironic. “We’ve put (name excluded) on a diet of fried foods and got him out of the gym into the hog barn, ha.” said Richard Perkins, an authenticity coach. “We’ve taught him what a steel guitar is, and how to tie a trot line, not just sing about one.”
While the trend toward more organic and source-oriented country music is not unwelcome, one must question the motives for the turn. D-Lister Dylan Scott told us “Well, my management somehow works me a hit or two a year, but nobody’s ever heard of me; we had to do something …so we’re in the studio working on some country as hell country!” smiled the burly Louisiana native.
At press time, Sam Hunt had no plans to stop talk singing about small town breakups over trap beats.

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.
