Country music is a storytelling genre, to be sure, but really it enjoys telling stories about itself - about its pillars of tradition, about its commitment to family and personal responsibility and God, about its devotion to its stars, keeping them around as long as they wish to stay.

My wife and I sat down to watch the CMA awards show and before we knew it one of the crudest and tasteless jokes was told by Brad Paisley to Carry Underwood I have ever heard on a show of this nature. We could not believe what we just heard. I thought this was suppose to be family show. Instead it turned out to be xx-rated. I guess this is where country music has to go to get attention. It didn't use to be like this. Never again will we be watching the CMA xx show and country music will not be listened to in our house. Thanks for lowering the standards of country music.
