Story | Aug 25, 2014 | 7:47 PM- In Willie Nelson’s song ‘Shotgun Willie,’ he says, “You can’t make a record if you ain’t got nothin’ to say.” Willie obviously didn’t anticipate the advent of home recording when that song came out in 1973. It’s my theory that the country genre is dead in part because educated middle-class white people, who have the means to acquire instruments and recording equipment, are conformists who don’t have anything interesting or original to say, and lack appropriate amounts of charisma, wildness, and rebelliousness—key ingredients in country and rock ‘n’ roll. Basically, they are conservatives despite their professed political beliefs and conservatives make shitty fucking rock stars. The social and cultural conditions that created the genre’s best artists were from a time and place when a person’s character was formed by work, regional characteristics (usually including poverty), local dialects, and freedom to think for yourself. Their personalities were able to develop under conditions of relative freedom, even if their bodies were bound to hard labor. Like the old masters, they learned their craft through apprenticeships (the folk tradition), rather than formal education. Television and the internet (paired with capitalism) have basically wiped real culture and diversity out, along with the oral tradition and replaced it with one giant homogenous pile of commodified dogshit.
