    If you don't like or don't listen to country music, here's an opportunity to affirm your own beliefs: a video shows the startling similarities between tracks from Blake Shelton, Parmalee, Florida Georgia Line, Cole Swindell, Chase Rice and Luke Bryan. Check it out below.

    I dislike the article that went with it. It seems like Billboard is trying to defend country when if you listen to country radio there really is no defense. lol. Billboard is also the place where no solo females have hit #1 airplay since 2012. Fishy fishy fishy.

    Article on this topic at SCM: Mashup Illustrates How Many Country Hits Are The Same « Saving Country Music

    Follow up article: Viral Mashup Exposes Silent Majority of Disgruntled Country Fans « Saving Country Music

    And Triggerman (owner of SCM site) posted this nice Carrie mention below the second article:

    It’s been my theory that beginning in the second half of 2014, the tide changed and mainstream country slowly began to take a more substantive turn, and were seeing that in the top-charting singles on radio and such. Florida Georgia Line’s “Sun Daze” did not rocket to #1 like all of their previous singles, and meanwhile deeper songs from Time McGraw and Carrie Underwood are holding on to top spots. It’s no Sturgill Simpson, but you’re starting to see material changes, possibly because of the exposure from things like this mashup, or at least the tiring of hearing the same song over and over. “Bro-Country” is on its last legs. There will still be some hits here and there. It’s not going to go away without a fight. But I have a definite sense things are slowly changing.

    Good article. I'm happy FGL's song is not rocketing. lol. To be honest I quite like some songs on their first album (before the big bro country wave) but their new material is just not good.

    Hoping the change is real!!
