Could I Actually Like Country Music?

This NYT piece on John Rich's new song, "Shuttin' Detroit Down", makes me think it's a distinct possibility. That's apolcalyptic in itself.

A choice cut:

I see all these big shots whining on my evening news
About how they’re
losing billions and it’s up to me and you
To come running to

  1. This is a great new song. Rich sang it recently on Beck's program on FOX and also last night at the Country Music Awards in Vegas at the MGM Grand. He is getting a great deal of exposure with this new song and I think it's great; it has quickly shot up on the music billboard charts. Surprised? I'm not. Note his guitar, with a huge sticker on it, front and center, that says "Made in the U.S.A." THIS is precisely why I have learned to love country music.
