Entertainment Weekly’s Grady Smith made a fantastic video compilation, garnering close to two million views on Google’s YouTube by delivering a very good point about the state of country music in 2013:

As he noted:

“I was inspired to make this supercut after posting my 10 Best Country Albums of 2013 list for EW.

I hope country fans will stop settling for this derivative junk. I love a dumb party song every once in a while (including some of these!), but when they’re the only flavor available, they get old very, very fast. Here’s to better music in 2014.”

As a huge country music fan, Grady’s got that right:
