Not only is it bad dance country/pop. It is bad dance country that is no longer popular. What is worse than bad country/pop that is stale?
They should have brought out Billy Dean, Ricky Van Shelton, Juice Newton, Eddie Rabbitt, Little Texas and Diamond Rio and any other act well past their expiration date. They could not get anyone who has had a hit in the past century (granted it is only 4 years old)?
