American Idol Spawns Country Stars

It’s Friday so we can be forgiven for taking up a light story today. So here it is. I’ve been wondering about this for awhile now. Isn’t it interesting that despite the best efforts of the show’s producers and judges to keep American Idol in the "pop" music tradition (at least in the first couple seasons before they saw the money) the show keeps churning out country and rock music stars? Where is the "Britney Spears" or the hip-hop rapper of American Idol? It seems that the American people, when asked, have different (and healthier) ideas than the music industry has about what’s entertaining.

but not much healthier. What I mean to say is that country music has been homogenized and synthesized to become something far beyond its original roots. Gone are the influences of Merle Haggard, George Jones, and Johnny Cash. This has been replaced with what I call "Journey with Cowboy Hats", which ironically was the "country" music styling of a recent Idol contestant...

Johnny Cash sucked; couldn't sing worth a lick. The only thing he had was some good lyrics, but that could be said for a lot of modern country too.

Jones and Haggard were (are) greats.
