Country music isn't always about sippin' sweet tea and driving pick up trucks. Some country singers' songs were considered too risque for the radio waves. From steamy music videos to provoking lyrics, these artists were placed on the naughty list for their tunes.

Saw DAC at the Chrystal Palace in Bakersfield a few years back! Good time, good time.
They left out “The Rodeo Song”... If you haven’t heard it, search it out. Usually heard just before last call in honky tonks. It takes a certain level of alcohol to get the crowd to participate.
Coe has some of the funniest UNPC songs I have ever heard. They will never see the radio.
“What Goes On When the Sun Goes Down” ~ Ronnie Milsap
“Baby’s Got Her BlueJeans On” ~ Mel McDaniel
Good old oldies...
Shania on the other hand...WHO BOY!!!
Country music died years ago. The garbage they call “country” today is nothing more than bubble gum pop. Here’s why 2013 was so bad..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WySgNm8qH-I
“Let me be your salty dog!”
A good song-writer can be as dirty as he wants.
They left out a couple by Tanya Tucker. Not only was “Would you Lay with Me in a Field of Stone” banned by some country stations, some of the state fairs and such she played would not allow her to sing it.
And “What’s Your Momma’s Name” was banned by some stations because they misunderstood the lyrics.
Some station’s barred Dolly Parton’s “The Bargain Store” because they mistakenly thought it was about a prostitute. I found that odd because there have been so many hit country songs that really were about prostitutes, from “Fancy” to “Bed of Rose’s” to “The Son of Hickory Holler’s Tramp.”
I remember back in the 80’s when I was in the Army...I was in Germany and I was with a German-American friendship club. We were sitting around after a bike ride and someone pulled out his David Allen Coe cassette. He played the whole thing. The Germans who were there and whose English was pretty good were HOWLING at the songs. Me...I was in shock. I’d never heard of the guy before.
I remember the songs. The only one I can actually post the title to was “Three Biggest Lies”.
Flatt and Scruggs...Great country!
Not that I want to see that video (I don't!), but where do you go to see newly-released country music videos these days? Is YouTube the primary release venue or does CMT still show videos from time to time?
Amen. The trend started when Texas artist all started avoiding Nashville and Georgia acts filled the void.
In the good ol’ days you’d get bleeped for hells and damns.
My husband can find a video channel on our tv, somehow. I can ask him when he’s not working. You can see them on Youtube, but you have to know what you’re looking for!
Yes they would. The wife and I watched “From Here to Eternity” the other night, we hadn’t seen it for over 50 years.
When released in the early 50s it was considered risque but by today’s standards it would probably be rated G.
Bluegrass. That is what real country music moved to.
Yep, and it’s good music.
Yeah remember ole Sally that worked at Kelly’s Bar and who could forget the one about the pillow where her head used to be.
