Art-For-Art’s-Sake Theatre: Maddie & Tae “Girl In A Country Song”

Time once again for our usual midweek feature.

In a recent interview, country music recording artist Collin Raye lamented the current state of country music.

There appears to be not even the slightest attempt to “say” anything other than to repeat the tired, overused mantra of redneck party boy in his truck, partying in said truck, hoping to get lucky in the cab of said truck, and his greatest possible achievement in life is to continue to be physically and emotionally attached to the aforementioned truck as all things in life should and must take place in his, you guessed it ... truck.

He's right, of course, except for one thing. If you ask the women, the real obsession is even worse than the one with trucks. A duo on the Republic label named Maddie & Tae are pleased to elaborate, in this latest viral video.

My cousins in the country were never like this. Then again, we tend not to marry our cousins.
