Why you might ask? Money, money, and more money.
    I'd say your friend was lucky to survive 40 years in the industry if she thought Taylor Swift was the "beginning of the end". She was definitely the nail in the coffin, but it started well before her.

    Real country music is alive and well AND not in Trashville, Tn. They don't play it on FM radio much anymore. Not much more than pop and 'bro country to be found there. The only bro that belongs in country is a dobro.

    Pretty good newer country music. Three Tall Pines - Stone Walls, I am sure most of us can relate to this song.
