C&W _does_ have the best moral-center of all music today; but whatever the message, if it's unlistenable, it's unlistenable. Most of the newcomers would have starved to death if they'd tried plying their 'trade' 20-30 years ago with their current levels of performance.
Most of my C&W music stock is older than the current 'performers' - some of it older than any TWO of them(!).
The Super Bowl hires animal acts for their stage because, unfortunately, they're performing at the level of the majority of an audience who are deficient-enough to spend money in proportion to what they accept from the spectacle.
Hey youngster with the apparent foul mouth, if you keep claiming, "I've suffered through listening to all those you've mentioned and they give me the sh_ts. Almost without exception there has been no really good, creative, original C&W music to come out of the industry in the last couple of decades." -- then you may just need some perceptual adjustments.
With respect to your foul comment, you best clean up your mouth! If you say another thing like that here, you may be long gone. Free Republic is above comments such as your, "go diddle your daughter".
You are warned.
Everbody pretends to an American Culture, but none can describe it.
