Fishing Is King
Each year it seems, a different theme becomes popular in Country music. This year, fishing rules. "Just Fishin'", "Bait a Hook" and simply "Fish" are all on the charts. All good songs. I have to say, I much prefer fishing to last year's "my town is smaller than your town and I'm more Country than you" dominant theme. Lifestyle themes are part of the format, and always will be. Let's remember, too, that Country is also about universal themes, told in the clearest most honest way. I wonder what's in store for next year?
