Numbers talk…bullsh*t walks. And when it comes to music, you either sell out the large arenas or you don’t. You either have an army of fans or you don’t. In this regard, country music is king.

How do we know this? Well, let’s take a look at Las Vegas—the entertainment capital of the world. And more specifically, let’s take a look at the T-Mobile arena. That’s the new stadium, situated right off the strip: i.e. next to the New York, New York Casino and across the street from the MGM. The biggest acts in the world will play there.

The T-Mobile arena is the new “place to be” in Las Vegas: home to a professional hockey team and major performers.

In the last four months, who sold out that arena more than any other artist? Was it The Rolling Stones? Was it Jennifer Lopez? Was it Justin Timberlake? The answer is no to all of them.

The answer is country music star, George Strait.

In the last four months, George Strait has sold out the T-Mobile arena more than any other artist in any genre.

In the last four months, Strait he has sold out the T-Mobile arena a total of six times. That’s more than any artist is any genre. The mainstream media has not covered this trend. That’s because they hate what country music symbolizes: i.e. nationalism, romantic love, family, etc. These values are in opposition to the (((Deep State))). Therefore, country music is a thorn in the side of Schiff and Schumer—a painful reminder that Americans still love simple and beautiful things.

*On a related note, it’s now plausible that the Mandalay Bay shooter was a setup by the Deep State: an attempt to murder a group of conservative concert goers, thus instilling fear into that demographic.

In summary, when it comes to numbers, country music is king. It’s about ticket sales and dollars…and you either sell out the major arenas or you don’t.

  1. Strait is ok, womanish but ok

    The modern country music is vapid and vile, devoid of soul or any thing else worthy of a mans attention but I get country music is no longer about rural life and became the generic bubble gum pop for suburban White folks as main stream pop became more urban

    1. There is the slow creep of cuckoldry into the genre, I do not deny that. I wrote about Kenny Chesney videos in a recent post, along with their tendency to embrace angle-grabbing themes.

      Still, there are some good songs in the mix.

  2. I’m not much into country although there were a few artists I liked way back in the day; like The Judds and Randy Travis way back.

    One of our 22-year-olds, however, is currently of the mind that Chris Staple-something’s Tennessee Whiskey may the best song ever recorded.

    1. I don’t know this song “Tennessee Whiskey:; however, I can predict that it adheres to the hit-song template:

      1.) Makes a woman feel good about herself
      2.) Every line in the verse relates to the chorus
      3.) Uses a different rhyme scheme in the chorus than it did in the verse
      4.) Uses interesting detail (57 Red Chevy instead of truck)
      5.) Is 2.5 to 3.5 minutes in lenth

      Those are just a few. I learned these from a man named Ralph Murphy who wrote a slew of hit songs in a variety of genres. Murphy exposed why some songs are hits while others are not.

      In short, country religously adheres to the template, which is why they (along with pop) continue to make the most money in music.

      1. Don’t know. But now I’m curious enough to look up the lyrics and see:

        I used to spend my nights out in a barroom
        Liquor was the only love I’ve known
        But you rescued me from reachin’ for the bottom
        And brought me back from being too far gone

        You’re as smooth as Tennessee whiskey
        You’re as sweet as strawberry wine
        You’re as warm as a glass of brandy
        And honey, I stay stoned on your love all the time

        I’ve looked for love in all the same old places
        Found the bottom of a bottle always dry
        But when you poured out your heart I didn’t waste it
        ‘Cause there’s nothing like your love to get me high

        You’re as smooth as Tennessee whiskey
        You’re as sweet as strawberry wine
        You’re as warm as a glass of brandy
        And honey, I stay stoned on your love all the time

        You’re as smooth as Tennessee whiskey
        You’re as sweet as strawberry wine
        You’re as warm as a glass of brandy
        And honey, I stay stoned on your love all the time

        You’re as smooth as Tennessee whiskey

        Yep. LOL.

      2. Nice lyrics that follow the format.

        Fyi…the template also is used for 99% of pop music. That is why these boy bands can be produced and the managers know that the songs will become popular: i.e. will follow the template.

        Back in the day, the Tin Pan Alley writers were excellent at this. Also, Motown did a great job of following the template, which is why so many of those sings have stood the test of time.

  3. The article was good, your comments-replies were better.

    I think one point you could have thrown in there was that these sellouts were not on country’s home grounds, but in blasphemous LAS VEGAS, an epicenter of “Northern” culture brought to the Sun Belt. The fact that it’s taking place there, rather than Atlanta or Houston, suggests that country has a wider appeal. Back in Ontario where I’m from (I’m now in Vancouver) there was at least one all-country station, and country was a respected genre of music, although of course pop music was dominant. The death of rock was NOT greatly exaggerated: only Q107 playing the oldies in Toronto and 102.1 The Edge playing alterna-rock handle rock anymore. Pop will eat it all up, and pop has a heavy dose of my favorite genre, 90’s eurodance.

    We’ll talk more music later.

    1. “I think one point you could have thrown in there was that these sellouts were not on country’s home grounds, but in blasphemous LAS VEGAS, an epicenter of “Northern” culture brought to the Sun Belt.”

      Very true, Xtra…a fact that is lost among many of the ankle-grabbing globalist media.
