Nobody wants to listen to their grandpa’s music. And I don’t care how many of these old farts around Nashville going, “My God, that ain’t country!” Well that’s because you don’t buy records anymore, jackass. The kids do, and they don’t want to buy the music you were buying.
The man with no hat goes on to attack the legend Ray Price in the Twitterverse... Yeah, I think we know who the donkey's behind is sitting back there in NashVegas.
