Country Music Was Better in the 90s (Sam Hunt Parody)


 Country Music Was Better in the 90s

(Parody of Sam Hunt's "Breaking Up Was Easy in the 90s")


Man, oh man, oh man


Bartender looked at me like, "I'd love to turn that jukebox down"

Someone was playing that modern sound

Something about a damn cell phone

Singin' with a twang but it's just pretend

Funny how it's two times as boring and half as witty

Why did someone pay money for a song this shitty?

The singer must have a nice face

Cause he can't sing worth a damn without the studio tricks and the auto-tune

But hey, what you gon' do?


Chorus

I'm sick of hearin' those snap beats, they just make me groan

Country's more than just some handsome cheekbones

They call it country music but that just reminds me

Country music was better in the '90s

I miss the steel guitar, truth and chords of three

Tired of hearin' pickup trucks and hey baby

Sam and Kane and Luke and them can kiss my hiney

Cause, country music was better in the '90s


Back then we listened to "Dumas Walker" and "Down at the Twist and Shout"

And "Chattahoochee," and "He Ain't Worth Missing" and "Love Lessons"

Sometimes the lyrics were fun and sometimes they were deep

But these days "vibe" is the only thing

And they wouldn't have a fiddle or steel guitar playin'

Or sing about some grown-up shit

Yeah I get sick of it all, I miss real drawling

Miss real country women and men


Chorus

I'm sick of hearin' those snap beats, they just make me groan

Country's more than a TikTok on your phone

They call it country music but that just reminds me

Country music was better in the '90s

I miss the steel guitar, truth and chords of three

Tired of hearin' pickup trucks and hey baby

Florida-Georgia Line and them can kiss my hiney

Cause, country music was better in the '90s


Bridge

Modern country ain't got modern hearts breaking

It's just a product, money for the taking

And I 'bout had enough hearing them living a country lie


I'm sick of hearin' those snap beats, they just make me groan

Country's more than just some handsome cheekbones

They call it country music but that just reminds me

Country music was better in the '90s

I miss the steel guitar, truth and chords of three

Tired of hearin' pickup trucks and hey baby

Thomas and Dustin and them can kiss my hiney

Cause, country music was better in the '90s

RIP Hal Ketchum

What a voice. Hal's words were imbued with such emotion and depth. He's going to be sorely missed. I was just listening to him yesterday by coincidence thinking his music is so fitting for fall weather. Thanks for the music, Mr. Ketchum!
