Pondering the lack of twang

ACM awards
Always make me scratch my head.
Where is the “Country”?

I don’t really watch many awards shows anymore. Orgies of self-congratulation fail to hold my attention for long.  I do watch the ACMs and the CMAs. Every time I watch them I get a little heartburn because I don’t think much of what is marketed as Country Music really qualifies as “country” it is pop rock hip hop with pickup truck in the video.
