Not all country music has to be about down-and-out truck-driving lifestyles, D-I-V-O-R-C-E, abusive husbands and the dissolution of the American Dream. More than any other genre, country lends itself so nicely to parody and self-satire. The best country music is self-referential, where the artist knows he or she is poking fun at an archetype. Maybe that's why She Said likes Dale Watson
and Junior Brown
so much - their ability to write countless songs about the same old country trope, as if the joke never gets old.
