Maybe it's crazy pregnancy hormones. Maybe it's the radio's fault and they overplay songs (and artists). Maybe it's that country music has gone down the toilet.
Whatever the reason, while I can hardly stand to listen to country stations these days! And we have 5 of them! It's driving me NUTS because country is pretty much all I listen to since the alternative stations here tend to stink even WORSE than country. Here is my Most Hated List (again, could be the hormones):
1) Each song is a variation of the same theme, "I don't want to grow up so I'm going to drink and sit my butt on a beach." I canNOT get behind that theme. Sorry, just can't swallow it. It drives me crazy enough that it's pretty much how our generation acts on the whole, so why would I want to listen to people glorify it in song? Well, I wouldn't.
2) He married Renee Zellweger. Then they mysteriously divorced as she filed for fraud. I pretty much dislike all of her movies, so how can I like the person that married such an atrocious actress? And how could I possibly respect you if SHE divorced YOU? Well, I can't.
3) I read he has a 29" waist. Maybe it was even 28" or 27" (it was a long time ago). I dated a guy (*cough*loser*cough*) that had a similar waist size, and he was all arrogant about it. I imagine Kenny being all arrogant about his, too. Perhaps he's not (though based on how many pictures he has his shirt ON in, I doubt that), but how can I listen to such an arrogant, shirtless jerk? Again, I can't.

And the trouble is, I kid you not, 9 out of 10 songs played on EACH of those danged 5 country radio stations is by one of these people. So I have some serious trouble listening to the radio these days and have switched to listening to classical music. It lowers my blood pressure... at least until country music gets that toilet unclogged.
On a BRIGHT note, who else is in love with Eric Church's "Springsteen?" Me! Me!
