Gone Country: On Jessica Simpson's Nashville Conversion
Mark Kemp, Texas Music, January 2009
ASIDE FROM HIP-HOP, country music is the most wildly popular musical style people love to hate. The Bottle Rockets once wrote a song about a hipster girl who tells her boyfriend, "You like country music? Well, you deserve to die." Robbie Fulks sang of people who claim that they like "any kind of music but country." Substitute "Jessica Simpson" for "country" and you get the same grievous injustice.
