Country Music was awful in 2013 - Grady Smith

Journalist Grady Smith presents his inspirational video: “Why Country Music was awful in 2013.”

I’m more a bluegrass fan myself, but it so happens that the vagaries of life has put me into a social circle where I’m in touch online with contemporary country music journalists.  One of them, Grady Smith, put together a compilation video of what we’ll call the “redundancies” in country music videos of 2013: “Why Country Music Was Awful in 2013.”  It’s pretty funny, if you have a good sense of humor, and most country music journalists had better have one.  So, as this may not be on your own personal radar, I’m bringing it to the large OJB audience for your amusement and enjoyment.  Country music fans know that the guys can do better than this.  (More songs about ticks, please!)

(If everything seems like an Open Thread lately, it’s just that busy of a time of year.)  Enjoy!  And happy Festivus, and the Covered California sign-up deadline to get insured by Jan. 1, 2014 is TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT!   ¡Ándale!

About Greg Diamond

Worker's rights attorney now moving into "good governance" litigation. North Vice Chair of Democratic Party of Orange County and occasional candidate. Proud to be prolix. Unless otherwise specifically stated, his writings never speak for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level. He tries to either suppress or openly acknowledge his partisan, issue, ideological, and "good government" biases in most of his writing here. If you have a question about any particular writing, just ask him about it and (unless you are an pseudonymous troll) he will probably answer you at painful length. He lives in Brea but generally doesn't blog about it. A family member works as a campaign treasurer for Wendy Gabriella in AD-73; he doesn't directly profit from that relatively small compensation and it doesn't affect his coverage. He does advise some campaigns informally and without compensation, although in 2014 he may receive some compensation for campaign consulting and fundraising for the campaign of Jorge Lopez for Orange County Assessor.
