Remember the Maines: Is Miley Cyrus the Next Leftist Trojan Horse Into Country Music?
Big Hollywood ^ | April 18, 2010 | Brian Cherry

Posted on 04/18/2010 12:27:02 PM PDT by EveningStar

...The left can’t compete in the Christian market. Let’s face it, the folks who declare Robert Mapplethorpe “art” simply have no credibility in that particular market. With that said, Country is a family friendly format they still think they have a chance of corrupting, and Miley Cyrus may be their perky little Trojan horse into that industry...

She is a kid hanging out with the H-wood types. Being brainwashed as we speak.

There are plenty of underdressed females in country music already, and many of them are better vocalists and/or prettier than Miley Cyrus. I doubt she’d make an impact for long, if at all.

Hahaha, my father was old-school country. He’d say they corrupted country years and years ago when it started to sound like pop music and the guys started wearing supertight jeans. He’d even say Willie Nelson was a hippie.

She doesn’t like country music, so why would she bother with it when she’s probably doing okay in pop?

I bet if anyone asked her how the leftist policies was effecting her bottom line (money) she wouldn’t know what they were talking about.

Near as makes no difference on the pole dance.

Country music is full of wrecked lives and lively scandal. Johnny Cash, anyone? Keith Whitley? Hank Williams? Trashy marriage breakups (Sara Evans, Leean Rimes), music about trashy breakups (Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert) ... casual immorality and drunk driving and vigilante justice.

If Miley Cyrus makes a run at the industry, her connections and name recognition will get her a shot, but unless she improves a lot, she’s not that good a vocalist and just not that interesting, so she’ll fade, like plenty of other cute young girls and cute young guys without anything to really distinguish them.

I have a feeling that Miley is quickly headed to that spot where she is no longer a teen idol and not talented enough to complete in the adult world of talent.

Not sure about that. Although Rick got his start on that cheesy TV show, the guy actually had some talent. He was much, much more talented than Miley Cyrus. He had some real rock and roll songs that were part of great era of Rock & Roll. He wasn't Elvis or Buddy but he was a damn site better and more talented than Fabian or Bobby Vee or any of the other Pop stars of that era. He was much better for his day than what Miley Cyrus is.

Cyrus is simply a Disney creation much in the same low talent region as Britney Spears. My nieces are finally at an age that they are discovering that the music they listened to 5-10 years ago was sure junk. It's an awakening for them. Miley Cyrus is a joke.

I barely know who Miley Cyrus is (I do have a 6 year old daughter), but in a general way, I am tired of the political views of popular music/entertainment folks being discussed. Who really cares what they think anyway? Just entertain us and shut up. As for scantily clad women, well that has been going on since Hee Haw in one way or another in country music.

However, if she comes out with her version of her dad’s “Achy Breaky Heart,” then she deserves to be villified!

She’s buying into the pervert HollyPuke and “music “industry” deviates siren songs, and is being morphed into just another skank that will be 50+ before her 21st birthday. Overexposed, and “used” up.

“Ohhhhh, sweet painted ladies...”

10 years from now, no one will remember her name, or want to.

I think that Justin Beiber punk is more of a threat. He is set to stune and is hugh and series.

Actually I don't think I have listened to either on of them.

My kids grew up before the Hanna Montana thing, so I've been spared seeing her, but Disney keeps a stable of reasonably talented young girls to be the "next thing." Britney, Lindsey Lohan, and what's her name that played Lizzie MacGuire have all gone from being the "next thing" to being "the thing" to being has beens.

Nothing has a shorter shelf life than teenage jailbait pop stars.

The big changeover in country music, IMHO, started with Buck Owens. His Bakersfield sound brought a lot of pop influence to country music. Shortly after Buck, Linda Ronstadt, the Eagles, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and a lot of other California sound individuals and groups really muddied the waters between pop and country.

I’m a big Coe fan. He used to have a terrific voice, lots of range, and he’s a very original songwriter. Sort of a preview of Steve Earle, only more so.

LOL, David Allen Coe used to hang out in the Lower Florida Keys starting in the early 1980’s. Owned a house on Big Pine Key. I’ve heard stories from Big Piners about the poker games he used to have with the likes of Hunter Thompsen, Bill Murray and the like.

Some of our NC Forum guys are bikers and said they’d seen him at Myrtle Beach bike week, but hard living has ruined his voice. Like Willie Nelson. He can still write songs, of course.

Whoa! That’s a blatant rip off of Buffet’s “Changes in Latitude”
Too funny. DA Coe used to spend late nights, early mornings at a 23 hour bar, Coconuts, on Big Pine. They used him at closing time to hoover the floors with his nose.

I was surfing through the satellite channels and saw her movie. I watched for about 15 minutes and was mesmerized since it was like watching a train wreck and I think I lost at least one IQ point for every minute I watched.

The word “BAD” does not come close to describing that movie.

I wathed a documetary done by his women freinds.

If it is the same guy wasnt he a heroin addict and alchoholic?

Died by jumping out a 7th story window in his misery?

Use to do well and then would pi$$ his money away just long enough and sober up a bit to make more money/work and ended up pumpin gas for awhile on one of his self induced bottom outs.

Had three woman (who collaberated to make the film) fall for him at different times.
Had a gaggle of kids with one of them that he never paid a dime to help support.

His own Mother was ashamed of him due to his extreme selfshness and self centeredness.

Dumb woman fell for his charm but all admit he was a real jerk.

That Buck Owens?
