CMA Brings Bad Country Music to New York
The CMA dissed Johnny Cash years back. They decided to go with younger and prettier faces, songs according to a formula, rather than anything from the heart. Cash was kicked aside, to make way for the Shania Twains and Brooks and Dunns of this world.
And now they bring their awards show to New York,and it ain't exactly the talk of the town.
Not that there aren't country fans here, there are plenty of them, in a traditional scene that centers on Brooklyn.
The country fans here tend to be more followers of Hank, Johnny Cash, and George Jones than of the Shania Twain type junk that passes for big time country music today.
