CMA review, or I was country when country wasn't cool

I watched the CMA's with Wayne and Virginia last night. We all agreed that:
1) Taylor Swift may be cute but she cannot sing! Her live performance made me cringe in a few places.
2) Carrie Underwood is gorgeous and can sing, but my allegiance still lies with Alison Krauss, she should have won female vocalist.
3) George Strait is one sexy man (OK Wayne didn't actually voice this opinion)

I loved country music in the days of Barbara Mandrell and Alabama. It has changed over the years and not necessarily for the better. Yeah, I was country when country wasn't cool.

Yep I'd have to agree with you on the not cool part. I remember when dating Heather I visited the big GA, and you, Wayne, Heather & I went out for a drive in our new Red Sunbird and you guys knew all the words to "why down yonder by the Chattahoochee" and I didn't know jack. I felt like a dork for not knowing the words, but it was really you guys that were the dorks!!!!

I bet that most people who listen to country now don't even know that there was a song "I was country when country wasn't cool"! And I totally agree about Taylor Swift AND George Strait! Especially George Strait! We had the "George Strait is my ultimate crush" conversation on the way to Blue Ridge (before I got carsick!).
