My 2 cents on Alan Jackson's song

Non-stop cringe-fest. Are there no mainstream country music songwriters who understand understatement, subtlety, and leaving some things up to the listener’s interpretation?
Jesus, it's like 'Here you go you dumbfuck listener, point A to point B, turn off your brain while I dictate to you. You're imagination and participation is no longer necessary. You will be assimilated. You will grow a mullet...'
In my mind, which is only one mind so let's keep perspective here, the most moving musical tribute to 9/11 will always be Neil Young's version of 'Imagine' from the Tribute To Heroes thing

Jackson = NUDIE SUIT

The only great country music singers I can think of who were not hard workin' men were Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, Ma Maybelle, and all the female country greats. All the great male country music stars were who lived hard lives: waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash from their sharecropping childhoods. Hank Williams and Merle Haggard. These were all real great country stars. Heck, Johnny Cash did not have the greatest vocal range in the world; but everybody that heard his voice knew he was the real deal and a legend. Anybody who puts alan jackson in the same class as those guys needs some time with the land
