People Who Hate Country Music Shouldn’t Be Trusted

The Country Music Awards were last night, and it’s a great time to remember that people who hate country music are not to be trusted.

Now, let me be crystal clear here so that there’s no confusion. There’s a difference between not listening to country music and outright hating country music. The former is acceptable because we all have different tastes in music, but there is no excuse for the latter.

Country music is all about freedom, America, hanging with your buddies, crushing beers, beautiful women in cutoff shorts and cowboy hats, killing the terrorists, supporting the troops, sports and just living life. What is better than that? Absolutely nothing.

I dare anybody to listen to Toby Keith’s “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue” and tell me they don’t want to run through a wall. It’s impossible.

And how could anybody forget about the lovely women of country music? Carrie Underwood is an American icon.

The classics of Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, George Strait, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson and many more are a great reminder of where our roots come from. Those are the men that built the base of where we’re at today.

So, I think it’s fair to ask why anybody who hates country music should be trusted? They’re literally against all the things I previously mentioned. Is that somebody you’d want in your house or near your kids? I don’t think so.

It’s also worth mentioning that women who love country music are automatically hotter. It’s a science that few understand, but nobody disagrees with.

These are the reasons I refuse to trust anybody who openly hates country music. They might as well have a massive sign on their forehead that reads “untrustworthy.”

We can’t tolerate them for even a second.
