Florida Georgia Line released their new album today, Can’t Say I Ain’t Country.
I wanted to take a calm second to point out song #18 (yes, 18, as the album is littered with skits), “Swerve.” You’ll know the song, because when it comes on your brain begins liquefying. I was listening to the new album at the gym when this song came on, and boy did it fuck up my work out. As “Swerve” played, I subconsciously stopped blinking and blankly stared at myself in the mirror for 3 minutes and 21 seconds, jaw slightly dropped, bewilderment painted all over my face.
The song is bad. It’s obnoxious. It makes your head hurt. I had to listen to “Cyclone” by Baby Bash and T-Pain to cleanse my palate.
It’s an insult, slap in the face, and middle finger to every country music fan when a song like “Swerve” gets put on an album called Can’t Say I Ain’t Country.
