In the past few weeks, artists from Eric Church to Vince Gill have weighed in with Rolling Stone Country on the current "bro country" trend, the much maligned subgenre of country music that has never met a pair of denim cutoffs or a dropped tailgate it didn't like, according to Yahoo Music.
Most have had mixed feelings on the bro-ing down of country lyrics, including Miranda Lambert. The "Somethin' Bad" singer, who currently has the Number One album in the country with Platinum, recently shared her explanation as to why that type of country is so popular.
"This 'bro country,' whatever it is, it definitely has this whole theme of party and tailgate and bonfire — I love all that stuff. I think it's big right now because everybody wants to escape for a minute and think about the fun stuff, and not driving in traffic and going to work," Lambert tells us. "But there is so much more you can sing about and say."
