(KIX POLL) Which Decade has the Best Country Music?

Decades.jpg

Which decade has the best country music? 

This is a debate I hear quite often and it can get quite heated at times. To use a grosse simplification, generally the older generations will say that their country is the best and this fancy new stuff 'isn't country' while the young people will be sending out tweets asking why this old guy is ripping on their jams. 

Or something...

Modern slang isn't my strong point (mind you, neither is old timy slang). It's really a debate that can't be won, nevertheless, it's time to persist and poke the stick down the hole, or so to speak, by asking the question. Which decade has the best country music? 

Was the 50s with artists like Hank Williams, Patsy Cline and Smoky Dawson. Or the 60s with Reg Lindsay, Johnny Cash and Slim Dusty. Maybe the 70s with Kenny Rogers, Charley Pride and John Denver. The 80s and George Strait, Randy Travis and James Blundell. The 90s with Garth Brooks, Lee Kernaghan and Billy Ray Cyrus. The 00s Keith Urban, Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood. Maybe the modern era since the year 2010 with Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, and Jason Aldean. Or perhaps your preference is everything being played on the radio right now that is fresh. 

Well, you might want to vote. It's a tough one, but which decade is your decade of choice.
