Put Some Country in Your Country

Put Some Country in Your Country
(Lyric Parody of Travis Tritt’s “Put Some Drive in Your Country”)

Well I was raised on country classics
Like Johnny Cash and George Strait
Lord, I loved to hear ‘em
But I really got all pissed off round about twenty thirteen
That’s the first time I heard Florida-Georgia Line “sing”
They put some suck in their country, that really turned me off

Boys, put some country in your country
Hey, what the hell is wrong with y’all?
Cause when the bass is boomin’
It don’t sound right at all
Every time I hear that weak pop stuff on my truck radio
It makes me want to drive my truck right off of a plateau
Put some country in your country
Keep country living on

Went to a show in Atlanta on Sunday afternoon
The gig was packed with skanks and douchebags
And the singer was rapping June and moon
The songs had my stomach in upheaval
They were all “Hey baby hey”
Thought this was country music so I jumped up on the stage
“Put some country in your country fellas!”
I got kicked out of the show

Put some country in your country
Hey, what the hell is wrong with y’all?
Cause when the bass is boomin’
It don’t sound right at all
Every time I hear that weak pop stuff playing in a store
It makes me want to throw a temper tantrum on the floor
Put some country in your country
Keep country living on

Put some country in your country
Hey, what the hell is wrong with y’all?
Cause when the bass is boomin’
It don’t sound right at all
Well, I like some new country
I ain't putting it all down
But damn, I miss Merle Haggard
I wish he was still around
Put some country in your country
Keep country living on

Put some country in your country
Keep country living on

I Love Lucy Country Reaction Gifs

When Keith Urban won Entertainer of the Year at the CMAs

When you're from the 50s and ask somebody what country music sounds like in the 2000s and they play you Walker Hayes

When you find an Old Dominion song on your wife's "Favorite Songs" playlist

When you smell T-R-O-U-B-L-E

When Ethel says Kelsea Ballerini's performance was her favorite on the CMAs

Reading Kane Brown fan tweets

What's a Bebe Rexha and why is it playing on the CMAs??

When tonight the Vitameatavegamin let you down
Still more country than Sam Hunt

90s Country Star Comes to the Defense of Modern Country

Amid a steady barrage of elder country singers' complaints about the authenticity of modern country music, 90s star Brad Lee Peterson has come to its defense. 

"Johnny Lee and Travis Tritt and all these other old dudes are just salty and washed" said Peterson. "Man, I like to get crunk to some Sam Hunt and Kane Brown, my dudes. Go drink some Ensure and let the rest of us enjoy how country music has evolved, bro." 

Peterson, the singer of such 1990s favorites as "Hilfiger Cowboy" and "She Don't Blow Up My Pager Anymore" says he understands where the discord comes from, but that country music is in good hands with such artists as Bebe Rexha and Jordan Davis. 

"All this shade throwing comes from a place of jealousy. Jealousy that they aren't getting the airplay anymore." Peterson laughed. "Look in the mirror son, y'all ain't poppin' anymore - old get off my lawn head ass crackers."

"Luke Bryan is really where things started getting better and Florida-Georgia Line just got it lit to another level!" smiled Peterson. "Country music is whatever country radio tells us we should love - they know what they're doing. They knew when they made (Peterson's only #1) "Party Up in My Lowered Truck" a smash hit in '93 and they know now." 

The debate between country traditionalists and progressives has hit several peaks in recent years. Bro-country was extremely divisive and the current trend of R&B flavored music on country radio has raised the ire still higher. Peterson, for his part, thinks it's all overblown: "It goes in cycles - it'll come back around to more classic-sounding country like Rascal Flatts or Shania Twain - then it'll jump out of the box again and do something like mumble-country… but the wheel always turns." 

At press time, Brad Lee Peterson was preparing to release his comeback single "Hashtag Fire (ft. Post Malone)."

Farce Madness: Crown the Worst Country Song Ever!

This won't be an annual thing, but we're doing a Farce Madness tournament this year to crown the Worst Country Song of All Time. The selections are based on several "worst country song" lists from various online sources, personal tastes, reader input, and recent "worst country single of the year" lists Saving Country Music and FTM have compiled.

The seedings will surely be a point of contention with some, but musical taste is obviously subjective. The rankings are based on a combination of popular opinion, impact (which means the ones that weren't hits are REALLY bad), creating good pairings for voting, and my personal tastes (with some randomness thrown in). You can debate them if you want, but the point is figuring out the worst song, so in the grand scheme of things, that's all that matters. Clearly, we could do a 64 song tournament entirely made up of bro-country songs, but that would be boring, and I wanted the tourney to be diverse.

Voting will take place on Twitter (follow us here:, due to the difficulty and/or cost of using polls on this ancient Blogger format.

The voting will go by region at first. I'm not sure of the exact schedule, but the voting rounds may loosely follow the NCAA college basketball tournament.

You can enter the Farce Madness contest to win some stuff (CD's, merch) from the Farce the Music stash. Send us who you think will be the last 4 songs remaining, in order. Whoever is first and most correct wins. Send your final four (ranked 1-4) to by Monday, March 20 to enter.

There's a bracket at the bottom you can peruse and even print out if you should wish. We'll give an update here after the first round.

Here are the regions, an explanation of the grouping (though some songs are randomly tossed into regions because it didn't balance out perfectly), and seedings.

If there are songs you don't know or haven't heard in a while, hit up YouTube.
