Why, Rascal Flats? Why, Valero?

One of the greatest summer songs of all times is Tom Cochrane's "Life is a Highway" (buy it and the rest of this great album here), a jangly, upbeat rock song that begs for a convertible and a warm day to blast it out of car speakers.

Why did Rascal Flats feel the need to ruin this song with their awful, nasal twang that sounds like the back-up singers from Hee-Haw harmonizing with Larry the Cable Guy? Why did Valero feel the need to put the bastardized country version in their over-played commercials?

All part of the ongoing process in which country music thinks it's inventing r&b.

Part of the blame belongs to Pixar, which commissioned the song for "Cars." A rare miss ...

Ugh. That Rascal Flats singer needs to learn to sing out of his mouth instead of his nose.

Country has always had some no-talent, big haired singers who wear so much makeup they look like they lost a paintball war, but that used to be just the women. Rascal Flatts members must have looked at some country music female has-been and said, "I want to be her when I grow up." Basically, the Michael Jackson/Diana Ross effect transferred to country.

Whatever happened to male country music stars that weren't fantasizing about joining Kiss?
