Pandering

This humorist says if you are writing music honestly, he would never bash that. A humorous parody of the modern version of a country song.


There are many great writers of country music including Dolly Pardon and Willie Nelson, but with modern country music, what is called Stadium Country Music, it's just a bunch of millionaires with good stage presence and no real story to tell.


Songs key in on nouns that are likely to create emotion and they use those words and phrases to pander to their audience. If you listen to country you know the words; a dirt road, blue jeans, a cold beer, a red pickup.
