Zac Brown Calls Out Luke Bryan’s “That’s My Kind of Night” as Worst Song He’s Ever Heard
It’s all happening in country music right now – usually such a nice, polite and well-spoken genre, without the diss-songs or trash-talking of Hip-Hop or Rock. Things have suddenly exploded (well, sort-of) since Zac Brown publicly called out Luke Bryan’s latest single as “The worst song I’ve (he’s) ever heard.”
Brown told Vancouver’s 93.7 JRfm the following: “There’s not a lot of the country format that I really enjoy listening to. If I hear one more tailgate in the moonlight, daisy duke song, I’m gonna throw up. There’s songs out there on the radio right now that make me ashamed to be even in the same format as some other artists.”
Referring specifically to Luke Bryan’s latest single, “That’s My Kind of Night”, Brown had this to say:
“I love Luke Bryan, and he’s had some great songs, but this new song is the worst song I’ve ever heard. I see it being giant commercially, successful within what is called country music these days, but I also feel like that the people deserve something better than that, a song that really has something to say, something that makes you feel something. Good music makes you feel something.”
He added, “I’m opinionated because I care so much about the music and the songs.”
In typically friendly country music fashion, though, Brown quickly clarified his remarks so as not to hurt Bryan’s feelings, Tweeting:
“My opinion is not about Luke as an artist, it’s about that song. He didn’t write it. I’m a fan of Luke, but definitely not that song.”
Anyway, no idea how poor old Luke Bryan is feeling about all of this, but we suspect he’ll be unwilling to comment on the whole thing so as to keep Country music nice and welcoming.
Reasoning suggests he’s probably ready to pull that little sock hat over Brown’s head and give him a few punches to the gut. Or maybe I’m just projecting my feelings onto the situation.
