The 10 Biggest Douchebags in Country Music

Categories: Funny, Lists

3. Florida Georgia Line
Their first song, "Cruise," was a sublime summer jam. But then they went and recruited Nelly for the remix, copped Chesney's sleeveless look, and enlisted Luke Bryan for the year's most insufferable single, "This Is How We Roll." Country plus rap typically equals crap, and these guys prove it.

2. Luke Bryan
The pretty-faced, nasal-voiced standard-bearer for bro-country, Bryan puts out a spring break-themed EP every year and dutifully plays a free annual show for blacked-out throngs of Florida revelers who are unlikely to remember a single verse. While he's only a collaborator on Florida Georgia Line's "This Is How We Roll," Bryan's own "That's My Kind of Night" was accurately lambasted by Zac Brown as the worst song ever -- although Bryan's breakout 2011 hit, "Country Girl (Shake It for Me)," gives it a run for its money. Also, he recently fell off the stage while covering a Macklemore song in concert. Nice one, bro. Not the fall, the fact that he was covering Macklemore in the first place.

1. Rascal Flatts
This aging boy band pours gas on the fire for critics of country radio every time they open their manscaped mouths. Gary LeVox's Mariah-like runs bear no resemblance to how a country artist is supposed to sing, and you've never seen a musician eye-fuck a camera until you've seen guitarist Joe Don Rooney optically jizz into the frame.

In case you're wondering, Hunter Hayes and Keith Urban are spared the guillotine because they can really shred on guitar.

 I quit working at shoprite to work online and with a little effort I easily bring in around $45 to 85 per/h. Without a doubt, this is the easiest and most financially rewarding job I've ever had. I actually started 6 months ago and this has totally changed my life. For more info visit my user name link..

"Chris Cagle?" If that's even how you spell it, my cousin meets him asks "can I take a picture with you?" His response "do you even know who I am?" She came home and told me this and I just laughed.

This is nothing more than a stoner writing hate about country music, again this is just someone's opinion. Oh and he doesn't list somebody because they can shred on a guitar, oh what a reason to leave them off the list, not! This person themselves are the biggest douche bag of them all! And that's my opinion!

It's like channel surfing and you find yourself watching the Kardashions. You know better and even though it isn't the country music we grew up we can still tap our toes and take it for for what it is. I agree a lot of the new stuff is silly but heck, who wants to be serious all of the time?

Douche bags exist in every genre. And not all music/songs are great, but we are given a choice on what we listen to and who we like. I don't necessarily agree with everything, but everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Courtney Paige, you're a fucking idiot. Pop country music fucking sucks. The awesome list consists of folks who actually write the music they sing like Townes VanZandt, Merrle Haggard, Jason Eady, Cody Canada, Waylon Jennings, Reckless Kelly, American Aquarium....I can go on but I won't. Stop listening to the shit they play on the radio or stop calling it country.

Horrible list that puts some real talent to shame! I'd be scared to see who the "awesome" list is!

What about Gentry from Montgomery Gentry? Buying a tame bear, then calling it in to kill for a "hunting" video. Not even a clean kill.

This article is spot on. If I were a big country fan I would be disappointed of the direction it is heading. It's all about bro country, singing about the truck, getting lucky in the back of a cop car, singing countless songs about exes, mixing with rap, etc. Johnny Cash, Hank Williams and the legends must be rolling in their graves. Too bad there wasn't enough room for Brad Paisley. Can't enough songs about geology & checking for ticks. Maybe he was spared because he actually is a good guitar player.

It's all spot on. The bro country, the rap crap, singing about trucks and continued songs about exes, the love for the camera, etc. The truth hurts...

I'm pretty sure you just named 8 of the top 10 best selling acts in country...so suck it while they earn extra zeros on that pathetic paycheck you "earn" for writing about them. Keep them relevant though buddy!

That's who I was looking for, and I consider the list invalid without him in it.

Ummmmm hello, he didn't list the singer who sang about getting lucky in a cop car because he could shred on a guitar! Oh and that was a good reason to leave him off, not!! He didn't mention Paisley because he knows nothing about country music. This was nothing more than a stoner writing hate about country music. Again this is just someone's opinion.
