One of my favorite country web sites Whiskey Riff is out with their list of the worst 3 songs of 2018. They put “Simple” and “Meant To Be” as #2 and #3. It’s so boring when people pick on Florida Georgia Line. It’s become predicable. Maybe they’re country music’s Nickelback. Say what you will about Florida Georgia Line, they’ve got millions of fans, their music always tops the charts, and they put butts in seats. While those two aren’t my favorite FGL songs, neither is anywhere near as bad as the song they put at #1.
Remember this disaster? Backstreet Boy AJ McLean thought he’d give country a go. It’s like he copy and pasted random lyrics from the top 20 songs on the charts, found a karaoke track and recorded it. It’s just brutal. Backstreet Boys fans are among the most hardcore and dedicated in the music industry, but even their fans were honest with AJ about this effort. One fan on YouTube wrote, “Love you AJ, but time for real honesty here. Not feeling this song, things seem off and not you. The vocals are way too generic and lifeless compared to what I know you can do. You are very talented but this does not demonstrate that.”
Maybe AJ should take some tips from Brian Littrell’s kid! Our friends on the QYK Facebook page think Baylee Littrell’s first single isn’t all that bad!
