Zac Brown blasted what’s on country radio today, saying a lot of it made him want to throw up.
“There’s not a lot of the country format that I really enjoy listening to,” he told Vancouver’s 93.7 JRfm. “If I hear one more tailgate in the moonlight, daisy duke song, I wanna throw up. There’s songs out there on the radio right now that make me ashamed to be even in the same format as some other artist.”
And Zac took aim at Luke Bryan’s “That’s My Kind of Night.”
“I love Luke Bryan and he’s had some great songs,” Zac said, “but this new song is the worst song I’ve ever heard.
“I see it being giant commercially, successful within what is called country music these days, but I also feel like that the people deserve something better than that.”
Zac: “My opinion is not about Luke as an artist, it’s about that song. He didn’t write it. I’m a fan of Luke, but definitely not that song.”

“I’m opinionated because I care so much about the music and the songs,” he says.
Zac isn’t the only country artist to be critical of country hits these days. Kacey Musgraves recently bashed songs about trucks in a magazine interview.
