This may sound really weird and random, but I can’t stand fake country girls.

Growing up, all I listened to was country. Alan Jackson, Brooks and Dunn, Kenny Chesney, the whole shebang. The kids I went to school with made fun of me for it and teased me for wanting cowboy boots. A few kids even had the nerve to tell me I should die for the music I listen to, since its all about death and drugs and alcohol anyway.

I never really liked pop music. I found the beats to be weird, the lyrics to be often derogatory or pointless, but I never made death threats to people about their music.

Well, around grade six, I was introduced to the ‘fake country girl’. They were those girls in cowboy boots and cut-off jeans, posting facebook selfies and statuses quoting Taylor Swift and Eric Church and Carrie Underwood. I wanted to scream 'thats not even country!’ at the top of my lungs, because T-Swift stopped singing country forever ago, Eric Church is slowly becoming pop, and Carrie was pop-country from the get-go. 

It pisses me off, straight to my core, that the kids who teased me and called me weird for listening to the music I loved trying to be a fake country girl because they thought it made them look cool. It makes me want to punch a wall or something. These girls are using something they told me was 'uncool’ and 'stupid’ to make themselves looks cool and smart. 

Just….. gah. I’m very passionate about country music and will defend it to my dying breath.
