Does Zac Brown Have A Right To Say He Hates Luke Bryan’s Latest Song? [POLL]
In a recent interview with radio station JRFM in Vancouver, Zac Brown was asked how he felt about the state of country music these days. Zac did not hold back, but did he go too far?
According to an article by Taste Of Country, when asked how he felt about the country music that he hears on the radio these days Zac said,
“To me, country music has always been the home for a great song,” he says. “If I hear one more tailgate in the moonlight, daisy duke song, I’m gonna throw up. There’s songs out there on the radio right now that make me be ashamed to be even in the same format as some other artists.”
Then the interviewer asked Zac about one song specifically, Luke Bryan’s latest release, “That’s my kind of night”. Zac said,
“I love Luke Bryan and he’s had some great songs, but this new song is the worst song I’ve ever heard, I know Luke, he’s a friend. ‘[That’s] My Kinda Night’ is one of the worst songs I’ve ever heard. I see it being commercially successful in what is called country music these days, but I also feel like that the people deserve something better than that. Country fans and country listeners deserve to have something better than that, a song that really has something to say, something that makes you feel something. Good music makes you feel something.
When songs make me wanna throw up, it makes me ashamed to even be in the same genre as those songs,”. According to the article, He later clarified his comments via Twitter, making sure fans know his beef is with Bryan’s song, not his buddy. “My opinion is not about Luke as an artist, it’s about that song,” Brown writes. “He didn’t write it. I’m a fan of Luke, but definitely not that song.”
So keeping in mind that the interviewer asked Zac about Luke’s song specifically, and he gave his honest opinion I ask you to take this quick poll”
