Al escribir el comentario sobre el disco de Dale Watson iF You....

www.musicacountry.es/country/criticas-de...if-you....-2013.html

No he podido dejar de hacer alusión a la canción que dedicó a Blake Shelton cuando éste metió la pata hasta el fondo insultando a los defensores del Country tradicional. Ahí va "I'd Rather Be An Old Fart (Song for Blake Shelton)"



I'd Rather Be An Old Fart (Song for Blake Shelton)

WELL I'D RATHER BE AN OLD FART THAN A NEW COUNTRY TURD
I KNOW I AINT BOOK SMART BUT FROM WHAT I HEARD
I'M JUST A JACKASS THAT LIKES THE OL COUNTRY SOUND
PLENTY OF US OLD FARTS STILL HANGIN AROUND

I KNOW I AIN'T A REAL SMART FELLER
BUT I'D RATHER BE THAT THAN A REAL FART SMELLER
YEAH YOU GO YOUR WAY SON AND I'LL GO MINE
WE'LL SEE WHO STINKS FURTHER DOWN THE LINE

I'D RATHER BE AN OLD FART THAN A NEW COUNTRY TURD
I KNOW I AINT BOOK SMART BUT FROM WHAT I HEARD
I'M JUST A JACK ASS THAT LIKES THE OL COUNTRY SOUND
ALOT OF US OLD FARTS ARE STILL HANGIN AROUND

Y a continuación un artículo que resume el sucedido, incluyendo la respuesta que dio a Shelton Ray Price. Mäs abajo el comunicado que distribuyó el propio Dale Watson:

Legendary country star Ray Price is not happy with reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year Blake Shelton, and he’s not afraid to say so in public. In a Facebook post today, the 87-year-old entertainer took issue with comments Shelton made to GAC, in which he derided old country fans for not understanding the music of the new generation.
Shelton made his comments as a part of GAC’s ‘Backstory’ episode devoted to his career. “Nobody wants to listen to their grandpa’s music,” the singer stated, adding, “And I don’t care how many of these old farts around Nashville going, ‘My God, that ain’t country!’ Well that’s because you don’t buy records anymore, jacka–. The kids do, and they don’t want to buy the music you were buying.”
Price read the comments via Saving Country Music, and he wasted no time in responding, posting the following:
“It’s a shame that I have spend 63 years in this business trying to introduce music to a larger audience and to make it easier for the younger artists who are coming behind me. Every now and then some young artist will record a rock and roll type song , have a hit first time out with kids only. This is why you see stars come with a few hits only and then just fade away believing they are God’s answer to the world. This guy sounds like in his own mind that his head is so large no hat ever made will fit him. Stupidity Reigns Supreme!!!!!!! Ray Price (CHIEF “OLD FART” & JACKA–”) ” P.S. YOU SHOULD BE SO LUCKY AS US OLD-TIMERS. CHECK BACK IN 63 YEARS (THE YEAR 2075) AND LET US KNOW HOW YOUR NAME AND YOUR MUSIC WILL BE REMEMBERED.
Musical comedian Ray Stevens also responded to Shelton’s comments in a statement through his publicist. “I just heard Blake Shelton’s remarks about ‘old farts and jacka–es’ and all I want to know is how he found out the title to my next single because it’s been a closely guarded secret here at the ‘Home,’” he said with trademark humor. “It will be available on vinyl or 8-Track at your nearest Tower Records store.”
Shelton himself responded to Price’s comments via Twitter this afternoon, hoping to clear the air and apologize for offending the legend. “Whoa!!! I heard I offended one of my all time favorite artists Ray Price by my statement ‘Nobody wants to listen to their grandpas music,’” he posted. But Shelton didn’t back down from his statements, arguing that new artists have to keep re-inventing country music “the way Mr. Price did along his journey as a mainstream country artist.”
Shelton cited Price’s classic ‘For the Good Times’ as an example of a track that was groundbreaking in its time. But he still insists that his initial commentary — while maybe too strongly-worded — was accurate.
“I absolutely have no doubt I could have worded it better (as always ha!) and I apologize to Mr. Price and any other heroes of mine that it may offended,” Shelton concluded. “I meant every word I said. Country music is my life and it’s future AND past is important to me. I’ll put my love and respect and knowledge about it up against anybody out there… ANYBODY…”

A message from Dale Watson:

Recently there's a fella in Nashville that won Male Vocalist of the Year by the CMA, that said in an interview that it's his duty to reinvent country music to keep it evolving. He went on to say that only old farts and jackasses like traditional country music and no one likes their "grandfathers" music. His name is Blake Shelton and mine is Dale Watson. If I'm an old fart then he is a new country turd, and I wrote the song to tell the world about it. Apparently , my sentiment is shared by thousands, at least 18,000 any way if you go by the views of the song on youtube. It's time for traditional country to split from "country" music. I have been championing the name Ameripolitan- original music with prominent roots influence. In other words , you can hear the roots influence in ones music. Randy Travis is Ameripolitan, you can hear Lefty and Merle in his voice, Blake Shelton is NOT Ameripolitan. I am NOT country, I am Ameripolitan. I hope one day to have the Ameripolitan Awards, then we would not even need Nashville. It can keep putting out this schlock for the people that like it and we will finally have a home again. Blake Shelton is their voice and it's heard loud and clear. We are not welcome in "country" music, and truly, I'm ready to move too. The neighborhood has gone to shit.

No es una canción, es simplemente una frase que acabo de leer y cuyo autor es Marty Stuart. Pero es lo más demoledor que creo que se haya dicho sobre la situación actual de lo que se llama Country en los medios que se hacen llamar así:

“Today the most outlaw thing you can possibly do in Nashville, Tennessee, is play country music.”

Posiblemente la cosa más 'outlaw' que puedas hacer hoy en Nashville, Tennesse, es tocar música Country.

¡Qué razón tiene! Ahora mismo parece que con calzarse las botas y colocarse un sombrero, todo vale, lo que suene ya es country.

Tristemente esa parece que es la realidad Eleanor.

Otra foto de en lo que se ha convertido la que una vez fue capital de la música Country:

Trashville a cargo de Hank Williams III:


Trashville
Now Playin' country music
it ain't like it used to be
I'm so tired of this new stuff
they're tryin' to get me to sing
That ain't no country music to me

Well, you can only take so much
of putting people down
when you got the best,
that's tryin' to beat your back doors down

Well, I used to think that country
was out of Nashville Tennessee
but all I see in Nashville,
is a bunch of backstabbers takin' you and me
(cuando canta cambia 'backstabbers' por 'motherfuckers')
They don't care about the music ya see

Well, I used to think that country
was out of Nashville, Tennessee
I'd rather take my things and
go back to Texas ya see

Now, I would pack up
and I'd leave this dirty town
but they've done taken me for so much
that I can't get out now
Maybe one day but not right now

Well, I used to think that country
was out of Nashville, Tennessee
I don't think that country's here
'cause they killed it ya see

Well, I used to think that country
was out of Nashville, Tennessee
I'd rather take my things and
go back to Texas ya see
