Country in a Blender

Few mainstream music publications are as inclusive of country music as Blender, an upstart music magazine that is refreshingly lacking in reverence but always demonstrates a wide sc I Want To Get Back With My Ex Girlfriend For Eternity ope of knowledge about country music.

    Blender also had a cover story about Miranda Lambert in March, complete with a heart attack-inducing photo spread. Interesting publication that gives country its due.

    I realize that was a little ambiguous: March 2006.

  3. They also did a major story about Carlene Carter and her recent “lost years.” It was fantastic.

    I read Blender – it is okay although I don’t think they give some of country’s subgenres a fair shake . They are okay on alt-country, pop country, bluegrass and country-rock, but fairly clueless when it comes to more traditional forms such as honky-tonk. Al lot of their lists are of the “smart-ass” variety. I’m not wild about Lee Greenwood, but he’s a better performer (and singer) than Faith Hill could ever dream of being. Similarly, “Acky-Breaky Heart” was an annoying song but it wouldn’t be on my list of 100 worst country songs, let alone an all-genres list.

    If the Eagles and their progeny are country (which I will deny to my dying breath) , then Blender gives country it’s due. If country is Lefty Frizzell and his followers then Blender does a pretty poor job of it
