Club Escapade 2001
October 23, 2013
There's something about country music that polarizes people: they either love it or hate it. But when you sit down and think about it, most of the hate is a result of the culture of the music (and its fans) and less about the music itself. Just like rap, people focus on the individual characters (gangsters/rednecks) instead on the true art of the music being presented. I feel sorry for those people, I really do. You are missing some of the most exciting and passionate music being offered right now.
One of modern country's new young studs is the mop-haired, Vans-wearing Billy Currington. Except he's not exactly new (his self-titled debut was released in 2003), nor is he young (he's turning 40 in a few weeks). But take one gaze into his deep blue eyes and just wait until he flashed his illuminating smile, and you, too, might be hooked.
