Burn Out by Midland

A bright spot for country music on Billboard’s Hot Country is Midland’s Burn Out. Way to go guys. It may not have the traditional country sound but it certainly has the real flavor of country music. It reminds me of the music from the movie Urban Cowboy. Way to go guys, good job!

Blake Shelton – Turnin’ Me On

I just listened to Blake Shelton’s new song Turnin’ Me On. Okay, Blake Shelton has been one of the few bright spots in recent years on the country charts by keeping contemporary country music on the charts. But this song is a sell-out to pop music. Perhaps influenced by his girlfriend Gwen Stefani. Come on Blake, get back to country, please. This is what happens when a great country song like I’ll Name the Dogs only reaches # 6 on the country charts and songs like Sam Hunt’s “Body Like a Back Road” makes number one on the country charts.
