An Open Letter to Former Pop and Rock Stars From A Country Music Fan
Hi there, gang. Let me start by saying that I absolutely appreciate the work that you’ve done in your careers. You’ve all had a lot of hits and a lot of success in your lives, and none of that comes without hard work. I get that. I respect that. However, the sudden rate with which you’re flocking to the music close to my heart; Country Music, is a little alarming! I have a few things I need to get off my chest about it:
Country music isn’t a fad. It used to be that Las Vegas was the place where retired rockers ran towards to try to revitalize their careers, but it seems that the latest place to revive a fizzling music career is the state of Country Music.
We’re not a publicity stunt. We’re more than just twangy guitars and singing about our dogs dying. We’re much more. We’re steeped in history. We’re passionate about living a full life, being good to our neighbors, and being authentic. Did you hear that? Authentic. Not a stunt. Suddenly becoming “Country” should be an easy way to make headlines. See, country music is in your heart or it isn’t. Country music is in your soul, and we can tell if you’re just getting into the country game to sell some extra tickets and make a buck. We can tell, and we’ll call you on it.
So, treat us country music fans and our heritage with respect and reverence. Then we’ll give you a chance.
