(Almost) Every Pop star collaboration ranked

2020.04.29 01:34 CyrusWaugh (Almost) Every Pop star collaboration ranked

Pop stars in country songs, that has become the biggest trend these days, 2018, it was making wedding songs, 2019 was talking about how country somebody was, and 2020 is making sure you have a major label pop artist on your song, literally go through the years and the number of these collaborations just get bigger and bigger, I’m sure it was noble early on to have a pop star on a country song, and it had more meaning back then as it was a rare occurrence, nowadays it honestly lost its meaning, oh wow, this artist is on this song, nowadays, I’m not shocked they are and I’m not excited that they are. Florida Georgia Line started this downwards spiral of collaborations and this trend is far from evaporating, so I’m going to rank all these collabs and stars making “country music”. However Old Town Road is not on this list, because people know at this point it isn’t country and realize it was never intended to be released as a country song, it’s it’s own entity and we should leave it that way, so let’s get through this as I say which ones work and which ones don’t. There are some I may forget, these songs are just off the top of my head.
  1. My Truck-Breland
I was considering whether or not it deserved its own spot, as this dude isn’t signed to a Nashville label, and I don’t want to give this song any buzz, the more buzz you give a song like this whether you’re saying its good or bad makes it trend, and this a song I don’t want to trend whatsoever, its getting ready to drop off the chart as they are releasing a version with Sam Hunt all of a sudden hoping it gives it a shred of streams. I don’t like trap music whatsoever. However I know when a song is doing something right, even trap. This isn’t the case in the slightest, the song is boring, its trap beat is extremely weak. And I’d honestly call it a snap track rather than a trap song. The song’s structure doesn’t make sense, and the lyrics are just drab, and trap lyrics are drab but this takes it to another level. I think its is going to be forgotten once hormonal teens stop using it on tik tok. And hopefully this will send country trap into the forgotten abyss along with bro country.
  1. Back Porch Bottle Service-AJ McLean
I feel like this would’ve been a successful hit in the late 90’s but releasing in the late 2010’s was a mistake. This is forgettable in almost every aspect. The melody in stupid, lyrics just scream desperate. And the production is extremely terrible. I don’t have much to say about, I can’t find anything profound, or interesting to talk about it, it is a blank slate of a song, which explains why it is stuck at the bottom with My Truck.
  1. Coming Home-Keith Urban ft. Julia Michaels
The opening piano chords make it seem like a reflective mature song, and then you get the insult that is the bastardzation (is that even a word) of the chord of Mama Tried by Merle Haggard, one of the most beloved country songs of all time, they literally copy and paste that chord and tear it to shreds. They do the same thing with the chorus, it isn’t that bad of a song, it is just bland, but its that chord that infuriates me, there are some lines you don’t cross, that is one of them. Julia Michaels sounds like she’s grasping for breath when she comes, but when we get to the chorus she sounds fine. It’s just a mess, a mess I don’t really feel that invested in.
  1. This Is Us-Jimmie Allan ft. Noah Cyrus
I know songs from Phineas & Ferb with this narrative that sound way better, and I’m not joking, there are a lot of Phineas & Ferb songs that are really good. Basically what I’m saying is: go watch Phineas & Ferb, its not just for kids and also watching that is better than listening to this pile of vanilla. There is nothing truly wrong, it just is an overproduced song that does nothing. The lyrics don’t feel relatable. The lyrics are incredibly simplistic as well as the melody. If you’re gonna do straight up pop music then at least make it sound good, the top 40 has a bunch of songs teeming with life like Circles or Blinding Lights. If you want to bastardize a genre at least put in the effort.
  1. Lost In The Middle Of Nowhere-Kane Brown ft. Becky G
I don’t really know much about this one, I think it is bland, I think it has interesting words and is pretty catchy, but I don’t really understand what this song is about, I think it has the same narrative of Lose It. That’s it, it’s bland. It likes to repeat lyrics several times, and if I don’t have much to say in terms of a song from here on out, I’m implying there is nothing to take from listening to it whether that is good or bad.
  1. The Champion-Carrie Underwood ft. Ludacris
Cry Pretty was a really bad album, I’ll even say it is the worst album in Carrie Underwood’s catalog and possibly the worst mainstream album of 2018, and its because of songs like this. It wants to be this big workout song, I’ve seen better attempts at this like God’s Country, or Loud & Heavy (I use them as workout songs don’t judge me) I will say Ludacris does a pretty good job. I like how they use Champion as an acronym, but Carrie just doesn’t bring it at all, one of the weakest vocal performances from her. One of the best voices in music overall went to making some of the most drab music.
  1. Take Back Home Girl-Chris Lane ft. Tori Kelly
This is a really cheesy song. Everything about this song is extremely cringey. This feels like a song that has the same narrative as a stereotypical small-town boy & girl hallmark film. It follows the standard checklist of boyfriend/bro lyrics. I’m not emotionally invested in the story, and Chris Lane just doesn’t sound good and nor does Tori Kelly which is honestly shocking.
  1. The Bones-Maren Morris ft. Hozier
Out of all the artists available you got Hozier. Look I don’t like that The Bones is number one on the country charts, but I think The Bones is a solid pop song, similar to my opinion of Body Like A Back Road. Maren Morris definitely has an earworm with this song, its become the biggest hit of her career since My Church. I just do not like Hozier on this, his voice is so annoying on this track, everything works with this song, I admit I slightly enjoy this song. But I hate the version with Hozier. I think he doesn’t harmonize with Maren Morris at all. I’m glad this was the first number one for a woman since 2015, I would’ve preferred More Hearts Than Mine or I Hope You’re Happy Now but what are you gonna do.
  1. The Other Girl-Kelsea Ballerini ft. Halsey
I’m infuriated they made this the next single rather than Half Of My Hometown, Halsey is going to get the most buzz, so I get why. This is bad vocally, and production wise it is nothing special, however lyrically it is interesting. I’m actually impressed in terms of lyrics. What I really enjoy is lines like whose the diamond whose the pearl. If they changed the melody and production I would enjoy this way more, but I can only take it as the overall package which is why it isn’t in the top 10.
  1. Cool Anymore-Jordan Davis ft. Julia Michaels
Jordan Davis normally does a good job in terms of crossover songs. This isn’t really the case, I like how they say you don’t have to be cool anymore, but they repeat that so many times, take a shot every time they say that, you will be wasted. It is way too repetitive for my taste. I’m not keen with the production here either, whereas on other songs like Single You Up or Take It From Me, it is really fun. Here it is just too forgetful.
  1. Nobody But You-Blake Shelton ft. Gwen Stefani
I’m surprised this song is succeeding as well as it is. It is a mess all over the place, but it is a decent mess. I hate when people bring up roads nowadays, that is the one thing no matter where this genre goes will stay, whether its bro pop or boyfriend country, that one aspect stays no matter what. I don’t really like Gwen Stefani in the song. He’s written way better songs for his partner like God Gave Me You, a far better song than this. This can only dream to be as good as it. I think this song is pretty catchy but I’ve never imagined people would enjoy this song as much as God’s Country. So kudos to Blake Shelton, he’s back in a very big way, I wish I could say the same for Miranda Lambert.
  1. Last Time I Say Sorry-Kane Brown ft. John Legend
I like it to a degree, It is way too simplistic for my taste. I would love for them to say what actually happened but if you can’t, why create this song in the first place? What are you sorry about, I need to know these things in order to relate to this song. I think John Legend sounds pretty good, his voice is amazing, can’t really say the same thing for Kane Brown, he rarely uses his bass voice anymore, which is where Kane Brown shines, it is a good pop song, but why not put this on the pop chart, this would succeed way more there, its not me complaining that its on the country chart, it isn’t insulting enough for me to hate it, you’re losing money putting this primarily on country radio. I don’t get labels sometimes. I thought their number one goal was to make money not lose it.
  1. 10,000 Hours-Dan + Shay ft. Justin Bieber
This isn’t as bad as many people say, and its not as good as many people say. It’s a song that plays it safe, if this was released in 2010, this would’ve succeeded as much as it does now, there is nothing outlandish about this song but nothing profound either, its an earworm sure, but it’s a cheap love song. I scratch my head when I think about this song, cause its not a 5/10 or worse nor a 8/10, I am all over the place when talking about this song. It has banjo sure, its not a snap track so I’m not gonna complain, I say let it be .
  1. You Should Be Sad-Halsey
This is a diss track. This feels more like a rock song more than anything, I like this song quite a bit, I like the lyrics a lot. They are really hurtful and full of pain sadness, and especially bitterness. I think it is a bit simplistic melodically. I get what’s going on with her and G-Eazy so I can empathize as well. This makes Gaslighter look like a fit compared to this song.
  1. One Thing Right-Marshmello ft. Kane Brown
The further we go, the more bombastic the songs. Its not “I Got Away With You” but it is solid, I like the guitar throughout. Lyrically its okay, it’s not a simplistic song like a lot of this list. But my favorite thing in a song is lyrics and I usually am never satisfied with these pop crossovers. I don’t like Kane Brown’s voice in a majority of his new releases, he tries to sing like a pretty boy, instead of the rugged bass voice he is.
  1. Women-Florida Georgia Line ft. Jason Derulo
I’ve gone on record saying that Women is in fact a good song, but it came out at the worse time, where for the very first time there was no women in the top 20 radio, and you release a song about loving and appreciating women. That was a major mistake. I think out of all the songs about loving women, this was the best. I wasn’t the biggest fan of Women Amen and I really didn’t like Female by Keith Urban. However I like this song a lot because it sounds like a legit R&B song, not a defective clone, not a poor copy, just a solid R&B song. I like the lyrics Jason Derulo brought to the table. This is one of the rare occurrences where a snap track works, I like the vocal power they bring, so this song gets a thumbs up from me. Just they shouldn’t have released it when they did, because it backfired.
  1. Setting The World On Fire-Kenny Chesney ft. P!nk
I’m not he biggest fan of the intro, the drum loop feels so cheap, however the first few lyrics make up for that. Chesney doesn’t do the best job vocally but P!nk makes up for that, she sounds great. Pretty much make this a P!nk song and get rid of Kenny. I’m sorry but he doesn’t sound good on this track. Kenny’s too old to reach those high notes so I get why its happening. It’s a nice middle lane song that I can get behind
  1. Meant To Be-Bebe Rexha ft. Florida Georgia Line
To follow up u/Notwith10000men just because I don’t like a song, doesn’t mean its not good. This is in fact a good song, but it is ridiculous that this song is considered country, I get why it was number one for 50 weeks, look at the streams and sales, and I understand why it was as successful as it was, it is a jam, and sure it is the poster boy for every pop crossover, having a snap track, talking about how they love a girl and wanting to get her on a road in 2 minutes and 45 seconds. Pardon my French but the song just slaps. I’m not just primarily invested in country and I know a good pop song when I see one. I enjoy it a lot, because it does pop right unlike so many other rejects on the country chart trying to achieve the same exact thing. Florida Georgia Line don’t really offer much, that’s why it is credited to Bebe Rexha. I wish the duo could do more, because they are capable of doing it, I just hate that it denied so many good songs in 2018 a number one spot.
  1. Heartless-Diplo ft. Morgan Wallen
Diplo doesn’t have a place in country music, but nonetheless, this is pretty fire. I can’t believe I’m using all these unprofessional words, but I have no other way of describing this. Everything just works, it moves fluidly, Morgan Wallen brings it with his raspy vocals, the second verse is just insanely catchy. Sure it is a standard break up song with nothing truly unique, but the way they move the words is done so well, mostly because Diplo is a pop artist who actually knows what he’s doing (except on do si do which is hideous) I don’t see it as country, but similar to Women by FGL I see this a pop song not a cheap knock off.
  1. Cruise (Remix)-Florida Georgia Line ft. Nelly
I’m probably over ranking this but I don’t care. I know the original is far better, but there is just something that brings me back to the remix, I was not a fan of a lot of the songs being put out overall in 2013. So the remix was a nice thing to hear on the radio, everything non country just didn’t click for me but this did. Nelly does a good job with this song, because he’s a professional rapper, Tyler Hubbard needs to stay away from rap, after 3 tracks of him doing it, he is just so bad at it. Out of all the remixes of country songs like Tequila and Dirt Road Anthem, this is by far the best.
  1. Keeping Score-Dan + Shay ft. Kelly Clarkson
This is a bit overlooked with all the hits these two have. It isn’t an overproduced boyfriend song, or a wedding song. This is more in every aspect, it has Dan + Shay’s vocal power, nice lyrics, it has a simple message of living life to the fullest, Kelly Clarkson and the duo blend amazingly. Kelly Clarkson is probably my favorite out of all the female features. This reminds of a song by Rascal Flatts, back in the day they were known for creating power ballads. The bridge is pretty repetitive so that docks it down a bit. But this is one of the best songs in Dan + Shay’s catalog as 90% of their stuff is so vanilla. Check it out, you won’t regret it.
And my favorite pop collab is:
  1. Say Something-Justin Timberlake ft. Chris Stapleton
In order to make a good collab you need two people who understand the genre and are truly passionate about it. These two are those type of artists, Justin and Chris care deeply and that care created this song, it is a rootsy smash. It isn’t an overproduced vanilla track nor a laid-back reflective song. Both blend to create a beautiful harmony. I still don’t know what this song is about, but I truly don’t care. The music video version adds another layer of praise, as it is more grounded in terms of instruments and production. Its ironic how the one guy who refused to go with the norm, created a traditional masterpiece went on to have the number one country album of the decade, and got to collaborate with some of the biggest names in music. While everyone else scrambled to be just like these pop stars and got nowhere.

2019.10.09 04:49 NotWith10000Men Five country and country-adjacent albums made Pitchfork's 200 Best Albums of the 2010s

...and I did all the scrolling so you don't have to.
196: Miranda Lambert, The Weight of These Wings.
For the first half of the decade, Miranda Lambert was a country superstar with a string of radio hits, a recurring spot on The Voice, and a picture-perfect marriage to fellow singer Blake Shelton. But when they divorced in 2015, the breakup encouraged her to go down a darker, more existential path. Her ambitious double album The Weight of These Wings carries on in a grand tradition of messy relationship statements: It has the grit of Tom Petty’s Wildflowers and the uncertainty of Bruce Springsteen’s Tunnel of Love, wrapped up in Lambert’s fiery, down-home charm. Its songs are torch ballads and highway anthems with a live band that feels borne of late night jam sessions, raw and unglamorous. For Lambert, redemption comes from buying a cheap pair of plastic sunglasses, by spending late nights alone at the bar, in knowing that she alone controls her destiny. Legend has it, she hung up on the first interviewer she spoke to about the record—the question was about Shelton’s new partner, Gwen Stefani—and decided that she would do no press surrounding the album, letting the music speak for itself. “All you had to do was listen,” she said. And the music says it all.
177: Margo Price, All American Made
Margo Price toiled for years to become an overnight sensation: Her acclaimed debut Midwest Farmer's Daughter, released in 2016 on Jack White's Third Man Records, came out after she had spent more than a decade in the Nashville trenches. But that album was a Trojan horse for the thornier sentiments she would smuggle onto the airwaves and stages with her follow-up, All American Made. Price mingles the political and the personal until they're indistinguishable on songs like “Heart of America” and the barnstormer “Cocaine Cowboys,” leading a band that draws on old-school honky tonk rhythms without coming across the least bit revivalist. “Pay Gap” couches its income disparity blues in flourishes of accordion and Lone Star guitar, while the Dylanesque title track wanders a desolate America as Price wonders if her pain—all our pain, actually—might be specific to this place.
173: Hurray For The Riff Raff, Small Town Heroes
Alynda Lee Segarra had been releasing albums under the name Hurray for the Riff Raff for years before her ATO Records debut, Small Town Heroes, introduced the Bronx-born, Louisiana-based singer-songwriter to the world at large. A former freight train jumper and street busker, Segarra collects sounds and melodies like postcards from across America, mixing rhythmically lurching New Orleans R&B, rural blues, and Appalachian stomps into a new form of roots music. Small Town Heroes consists mostly of traveling songs—reflections on life as a touring musician—but also the thoughts of a woman who has spent most of her adult existence in transit. She's seen jubilation, tribulation, and cold-blooded murder, but Segarra keeps wandering, as though she can't wait to see what's over the next hill or around the next corner. “We might not be here when next year comes,” she sings on “Small Town Heroes.” “You better live it like you’re on the run.”
162: Sturgill Simpson, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music
Sturgill Simpson’s music is rooted in modern country, but he’s also part of the proud heritage of “cosmic country,” a spacey descendant of Rhodes scholar Kris Kristofferson and Kahlil Gibran-quoting Willie Nelson. On his breakout album, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, Simpson braided together no less than Jesus, Buddha, and “reptile aliens made of light” in the very first song. From there, the Kentucky native managed to dig deeper into his earthy roots of while also wandering even further into galaxy-brain thought. Simpson still refuses to be penned in and Metamodern Sounds in Country Music is when he started to elevate.
23: Kacey Musgraves, Golden Hour
With Golden Hour, Kacey Musgraves burst the country music bubble, welcoming a rainbow of humanity to join her rousing chorus of “when I say yee, you saw haw.” Her third record draws on pop and country sensibilities to document falling in love—and staying there—with remarkable clarity and a lingering sense of wonder. A noted fan of story songs, Musgraves knows that sometimes, the story is as simple as how flowers look on the walk to the bar. On an album accessorized with disco beats and vocoder trills, even vibe-harshing characters like the know-it-all boor of “High Horse” get the glitterbomb treatment. There are pangs of anxiety, too—fear that the glow will fade, or that faraway family will slip out of reach—but they only make Musgraves’ bliss more believable, and the satisfaction sweeter.
I haven't listened to Hurray For The Riff Raff's album and I didn't recognize the artist, but I listened to a few songs and they sounded country-adjacent enough for me to inlude. If I missed any other country-ish albums, feel free to include them in a comment. Taylor Swift's Red album was also included at number 59, but I think I felt it was more pop than country the last time I listened to it so I left it off this post.
So how do you feel about these five albums being on this list? Have you listened to them? Were they ranked fairly? Did Pitchfork snub any of your darlings?

Keith Urban Finds Redemption, Carrie Underwood Dominates at This Year’s CMT Music Awards
by Mesfin Fekadu / AP via TIME
After walking away empty-handed at the Grammy Awards and the Academy of Country Music Awards earlier this year, Keith Urban found redemption at the 2017 CMT Music Awards, picking up four honors including video of the year for “Blue Ain’t Your Color.”
The country star also won male video, collaborative video and social superstar of the year at the Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee.
“I love making music, I love making videos … who knows how long you get to do it,” said Urban, who also thanked his fans and his actress-wife Nicole Kidman, who sat in the audience.
“I’m just trying to make a connection,” he said.
Urban also performed, singing his disco-flavored hit “The Fighter” with Carrie Underwood, who continued to dominate as the most awarded act in the history of the CMT Awards with 17 wins.
She won female video of the year for “Church Bells” and collaborative video for “The Fighter.”
“Thank you God for so many incredible blessings that we have in our lives … we are so grateful and we are so blessed,” said Underwood, who is married to Mike Fisher of the Nashville Predators, who are competing in the Stanley Cup Finals against the Pittsburgh Penguins (Game 5 is Thursday).
“Go Preds,” she said.
Others paired up for collaborative performances throughout the night. Jason Aldean, Darius Rucker, Charles Kelley of Lady Antebellum and Derek Trucks kicked off the show with a rocking tribute to southern rocker Gregg Allman, who died last month at age 69. Peter Frampton sang outdoors with Brothers Osborne; The Chainsmokers and duo video of the year winners Florida Georgia Line performed the energetic “Last Day Alive,” which was pre-taped Tuesday; and Earth, Wind & Fire partnered with Lady Antebellum to close the awards show.
Luke Bryan and Jason Derulo, who won CMT performance of the year for “Want to Want Me” from their “CMT Crossroads” special, performed the pop song onstage as well as Bryan’s slow groove, “Strip It Down.”
The CMT Awards didn’t only include singers from other genres; Hollywood stars also attended, including Ashton Kutcher.
Jada Pinkett Smith and Katherine Heigl sported pink sunglasses while Miranda Lambert sang “Pink Sunglasses” onstage. Blake Shelton, Thomas Rhett and Kelsea Ballerini also performed during the show. Little Big Town, who also sang, won group video of the year for “Better Man,” their No. 1 hit that was written by Taylor Swift.
Band member Karen Fairchild thanked the group’s fans “for making this such a big hit.”
Lauren Alaina, who placed second on “American Idol” in 2011, won breakthrough video of the year for her No. 1 hit, “Road Less Traveled.”
“Reba McEntire just gave me an award so that’s pretty crazy,” said the shocked 22-year-old singer. After thanking people she gave Jesus a shout-out.
“I should have said that first. Sorry God,” she said.

2017.04.11 21:18 ImSteveMcQueen Some honest feedback from my wife.

I stumbled upon what appears to be some of my wife's journalling efforts from last weekend. Upon reading I gained some insight into things as she sees them. I'd like to use the information I gained as constructive feedback on my approach to the relationship. I have my own ideas, but I'd like your insight and comments.
I'm not saying that Trump is right or wrong or that the immigrants are or are not being victimized. In the list of things that matter and that I have control of in my life, this is probably item #147. I would be happy to talk about sports, future plans, things we could do immediately, etc. But she wants to sit and have a pity party.
I refuse to do this with her and so I've been checking myself out to work, hobbies, friends, work out, etc. She is spending a lot of time alone on the couch. I can't really get her off of it.
What do you think of all this ? How would you change your approach if you received this feedback ?

Questions Answers
Does anyone pre-record their performances at the Grammys? Or perhaps enhance the performance with recordings or electronic aids? Is it a big deal among musicians to do so? Are there famous artists who get nervous about a live performance before people who may not be fans? On the other hand, are there artists who just thrive on performing live? Yes, but I can't name names. We never do on principal. I can say at country awards shows it's usually about 2/3rds pre-tracked except for lead vocals. It's much less in the rock world. I've heard only 3 bands are using tracks tonight.
Last time we had a show with usher he had tons of laptops running. 3 keyboard players onstage and not even one of them even bothered to mime playing that 2 note intro.
Electronic aids is pretty vague. There are plenty of drum machines playing click tracks in our ears...ear monitors could be considered electronic aid.
There's definitely a machismo to playing live as opposed to doing the milli-vanilli. But pre-recording means you get paid twice...for the performance and the recording, so they kinda win that way.
Dave matthews came offstage at an award show and his response when we complimented him was (approximate quote) "I almost shat my pants I was so scared". We thought somebody with his experience still being that moved by it was awesome.
Miranda is definitely one who thrives on the performance. sometimes you have to reassure the producers that it will pick up for the real show. I feel that for sure. The stakes get high and I get lost in the fun of the moment. I liken it to mountain biking. It forces you to be as focused on the moment as you are capable of. Seeing Pink doing pushups and jumping around like a badass just before she hit the stage at iHeartRadio was awesome to see. However you feel about a star's music sometimes you can't deny the energy and entertainment they provide live.
"I almost shat my pants I was so scared" He scares easily. I heard he got scared crossing the Chicago river a few years back. It landed on a boat full of tourists passing under neath. We often get lectured on being careful because we represent Miranda's name...but it truly is funny how much people exaggerate when celebrities have messups. I have a little inside info on that one: The driver for one of the crew busses, probably full of technicians that never even interact with dave, decided to dump his toilet smells awful when they get full and sometimes the drivers are too lazy to find a truck stop to empty the shitter properly. Years ago I stepped in a stream of pee from Miranda's bus when her driver dumped on the desert roadside right when I was walking up barefoot to check on another crew member...pee mud, ugh. I boiled my foot. Anyways, going over a river on a grated bridge seems like a sneaky place to dump without getting caught. But the decision had nothing to do with Dave himself...I'm sure he was asleep on another bus miles in front or on a jet. And I'm sure that driver was a good man who got fired over a careless decision. Still, it makes fun enough headline that people latch on to and don't care about details.
Just a wee bit of proof is all we ask, and then I promise the questions will come flooding in. Everything I've heard about Frank Ocean paints him as one of the nicest people on the planet. His dressing room isn't far from ours, maybe I'll try for a fiver. Last time I saw the bieb's he was flanked by 4 bodyguards who tensed up when we said hi. It's fun being an unknown backstage because the celebrities always say hi back in case you might be somebody they should know.
Preemptively, will you please kick Justin Bieber in the balls for me? Oh and give Frank Ocean a high-five. Edited for proof.
Who are you. Chris Kline.
What are you performing? I don't think I'm allowed to reveal the song but it's a Miranda Lambert hit.
What's your opinion on the nominations. I don't really follow award shows, but I heard some people grumbling about album of the year snubs.
What's your opinion on the current state of music and the music industry? It seems like rock is going through an 80's sounding phase but with more modern and tasteful production. Keyboards are suddenly cool again. #1 songs may not have an acoustic instrument but they are far from say AHA. I don't really follow pop though.
Vertexguy?! Nope...I think of him as the "more famous musician/programmer named Chris Kline". I had never heard of him till I won bioshock years ago... imagine my surprise when his/my name came up in the credits!
It didn't take much time on YouTube to see he knows his way around a guitar neck more than I do!
Being a country fan I was pissed Chief wasn't even nominated... It was released summer of 2011! It wasn't eligible for anything "of the year 2012"...
Ooooh I love Miranda Lambert! Saw her in concert once, wonder if you were there too… She is awesome live! I you saw her in the last 7 years, then yes, I was probably there!
How do you feel about the current state of country and western? Has becoming more mainstream been good or bad for it? It seems to be going through a hair-metalish phase. A lotta drop D loaded with distortion. Country is more rock than it's ever been. It's growing in popularity and I think that's a good thing. Good music will always be made, what sells or gets radio play in a given year is not directly related. I'm a fan of more songwriterish stuff.
Sounds like my kinda music. I gotta listen to you more often. You're the Chris Kline of "The Bionic Jam", right? No, the Chris Kline of Bioshock fame is not me but I've been meaning to invite him out to a show. I've seen him on youtube and he is a shredding guitar player. As a CS majomusician he gives me a nerd boner. Also I loved bioshock.
He's definitely the most famous Chris Kline unless you count Chris Klein of American Pie fame (I've gotten so many funny emails meant for him). But there are literally hundreds of us on facebook last I checked.
Maybe you two could start a band and really confused a whole bunch of people :) It's one of those John Smith kind of names... hundreds on Facebook. There's another Chris Kline I know of who is a drummer. We grew up in the same city, went to the same college, have the same middle initial... We easily spent 2 decades in the same city and somehow never met. But I thought it would be cool to track down all the CK musicians and make an album. Of course, people would just think it's a Hunter Hayes kind of thing.
If country is getting more metal, then pop is getting more folk. Funny how that goes... I just saw this comment ...that's a great way to simplify it!
Have a good time at the Grammys, and let us know if you see anything gossip-worthy! I saw plenty of funny things happen and I love to tell stories, but as a high-school nerd the word "gossip" makes me think of degrading somebody for entertainment and I'm really not into that. As far as fun little details involving celebs: Kelly Clarkson was still going on about getting stuck on Miranda when she made her way back to the dressing rooms just after her grammy. Miranda later said Kelly was not the first or last person to get stuck on her was an accident waiting to happen with every hug and many a faux diamond was lost.
Hey, to be fair, Google's Suggest feature suggests your name as first result, and that's generally a good indication of fame. Link to
Hmm, maybe if I insist on the spelling...and I think that re-ordering is recent, but i'll take it as a good thing!
I swear, it wasn't doing that four days ago! It's all about incognito mode if you want unbiased results, and it still might use your IP region. The kind of tailor made results and advertising that goes on with your average google search is a little creepy.
How does it feel? Is it your biggest gig yet? How is the dynamics in the band during the show? Any room for improvisation - not so much melody/chords I would imagine but perhaps phrasing? We did the grammy's a couple of years ago so not crazy jitters...but we were a little shaky at rehearsals so there is a little danger factor.
No...playing a sold out wrigley field with paisley felt biggemore significant.
We are combining 2 bands for a medley,,,lots of musicians onstage who haven't jammed together much playing through quickly built ear mixes.. it's a bit like walking a tightrope together but we try to relax and remember to have fun.
I'm playing B3 on a song with no B3 so im completely improvising...I've been changing up some inversions on the fly...just feeling it out. I'm not the sort of musician who knows exactly what I'm going to play but there's not too much wiggle room when just padding some big chords.
Will your grammy watch the grammys in her pajammies? That is entirely likely.
Can you punch Chris Brown in the nuts for me? That would be very cathartic for the sane people in America.
Who are you? A musician. A redditor. Chris Kline. You've never heard of me.
Can you take a picture of Katy Perry's boobs while you're there? We have vast amounts of Karma to share and no one to give it too. Dat dress... i hope it's not too sexist to recount my most special 53rd grammy rehearsal experience. We sat out in the empty audience seats while the rest of the bands rehearsed. Katy Perry had a bubble machine going during the rehearsals which put out smoke filled bubbles everywhere. They looked really cool, caught the light, and made little smoke poofs when they popped. But they popped a lot and the dancers started slipping on the pools of soap. After the song she announced into the mic that it was too slippery and they couldn't dance with the floor that way. As she demonstrated to the producer how the bubbles made them slip she lost her balance for real... and to catch herself she had to double over in a full forward fold with her ass to the audience. She was wearing a very short skirt and very thin underwear. I'll be in my bunk.
Is Blake Shelton really that awesome?? He is effortlessly funny. It's not just for the camera. He could easily be a comedian for a living in an alternate universe where he didn't play country. He's a kind soul as well...Its that certain honesty that goes hand in hand with being a comedian. If he has a bad side I haven't seen it.
Congrats on the TV gig. How different is it to play a TV gig versus a live show? Is it different playing in front of other professional musicians? Will you be watching the show when you're not playing (and if so, do you have your "I'm so glad so-and-so bad musician won and I'm on TV" face practiced?)? Staring at seated celebrities instead of wild fans is way different...and occasionally a camera gets in your face and you have to pretend its not messing with you. I intentionally don't wear my contacts so I don't space out looking at say Elton John or Jack White.
We will be backstage gherming after we play. We stand by the stage exit and say hi to the celebs as they's tons of fun.
I love the fact that you said gherming here... Fellow musician with a lot of Nashville background in my family. Didn't realize how significant this word was until I started spending more time in Nashville. I think the word extends to the film world as well...but I had never heard it until I started working around famous people.
Do you see celebs gawking at mega-stars? I don't care if I'm King of the Universe, I'm gonna gawk at Aretha... :) Of course! I think most stars don't think of themselves as stars unless they buy into the ego trip. And as much as people love shitting on celebs, the majority of them get to where they are by having an amazing talent. At awards shows stars bump into each other in the hall constantly and as they are walking away you will hear them saying stuff like "OMG that was amazing". It's kind of a mutual admiration society (older than facebook)... and I think that's half the purpose of putting all the dressing rooms in close proximity. Miranda loves Beyonce and was giddy to talk to her. Dierks looked like Mcauley Caulkin saying "yes" to himself after talking to Steve Martin at the ACM's, it was sweet to see. Dave Grohl seemed excited to talk to everybody, but I think he's just the human equivalent of a happy puppy.
I would space out immediatley after seeing Jack White in the flesh. As a band we pretty much did that. Nobody came up with anything relevant to say besides "we loved your performance" so the awkward small-talk came to an end with him walking away saying "see you around Nashville".
In retrospect some good ice-breakers would have been "We are guys from the rock world playing in the Nashville scene...we love what you're doing there...You'd be welcome to jam with us anytime (you never know)."...but no, instead we hosted our own little Chris Farley show.
Can you say hi to Reddit when you're on camera? Something so we know you're acknowledging us? I doubt I'll get any camera time...and there's no way for me to know if they do have me in a shot. I wore a reddit pin for many of the country award shows we've done but they are psycho abour not allowing logo's onstage at the grammy's.
Have you ever sang a Miranda song at a karaoke bar? May I recommend you get drunk and try it sometime? Oh jeez, yes a few times. Never sober. Everybody thinks they are clever signing me up for a miranda karaoke song. The thing is I sing all her songs for soundcheck every day so I'm very experienced with performing them. But this one time I was in hell when Blake's sister secretly voluteered me to take over for the pianist at a crowded piano bar and play Kerosene. This was downtown little rock after a concert so it was packed with fans. I had never actually played the song on anything but harmonica and I was unsure of the chords or how it could even be done with a piano. I mouthed to Miranda "help me" but it was too late to let the bar down. The bar crowd ended up being so noisy that nobody minded me searching for a few chords and lines...but I still catch flack from Blake's sister for not knowing all the words. We ended up getting escorted from the bar to the busses later by a team of 4 mounted police.
I really appreciate the way you elaborate on your answers and tell good stories. Storytellers like you make for really interesting AMAs even when I'm not familiar with the subject to begin with. Thanks! Cool, I figured it would be fun and I'm glad you are enjoying it. I get so much out of this website so it's great being able to contribute.
Do you have a solo career? Sort of. I post my new songs to when I finish them... But I got this gig after I was finally crushed enough by the harsh reality that is the music industry...and started looking for work as a side-man. I've been kicking around getting involved in the Nashville songwriting scene but I'm mostly a rock guy and the one point everybody makes about country these days is it doesn't need more people trying to dress up rock songs as country songs.
Do you mind telling what is the harsh reality that is the music industry? Nobody cares about the art you nurture and birth to the world. Also, nobody will tell you if your art simply isn't original or passionate enough to be interesting... You just get ignored until you can bring warm bodies into clubs or sell records. Then everybody wants a piece whether it's good or not. Also, it takes money to make money... The day of the starving artist getting discovered is over.
What about Carrie Underwood? nobody to huge star in a few years? Does she write songs? I'm not saying you can't be a great performer and achieve fame. She has a voice and show that can sell tickets and albums and so a big label invested in her.
Miranda lambert played saxophone in high school. Why didn't any hot girls play saxophone at my high school? I do think girls should find more things like band instruments or science fun, but american culture just doesn't reward these sorts of activities right's all about popularity and fun. Don't get me started. But the cool nerd does seem to be making a comeback lately.
Link to Holy shizzle-fries! That is hilarious and disturbing to hear something I wrote with the voice inside my head spoken in your voice...a professionally smooth voice I might add.
Can you get me a job with Miranda's crew? I'm really fun to hang out with. "The hang" is so important. And we had so many revolving crew positions when we were a Texas based band... hiring friends and friends of friends to tune the guitars and such...but somewhere between 2008 & 2010 it got so big that we hired mostly nashville professional technicians, which is a professional pool that just isnt as big in texas. To put it another way, we outgrew the supply of TX touring professionals. Now we are such a well oiled organization that suggesting a friend for a position would just be laughed off if that friend hasn't already proven themselves in the hellfire that is the touring industry. There were too many people at the shows to just stop things and say "sorry, the guitar tech put the capo on the wrong fret", as happened from time to time in our clubbier days. People expect a bigger, tighter production once thousands start showing up for the show.
It's important to note that the texas region is big enough that it has its own country market that is often at odds with "nashville country". Bigger Texas bands never have to stray far from Texas to make enough money to support themselves. But if you want to play arenas you have to make it to a national market and Texas alone can't provide's a hard or impossible transition for many southern country/rock bands. Once you become a nationally famous band the Texas markets might reject you for not being Texas enough. These are very vague generalizations but my point is that the nashville vs. texas tension is quantifiable.
Is that a no then? : ( PS Miranda and Dierks did awesome! TL;DR: No. (Management specifically announced a "no more hiring friends" rule years ago)
I'm glad you enjoyed the mashup!
Thanks for doing this AMA. How did you land the job as a musician? Are you a 'studio musician'? What does your job require of you (hours put in, how much creativity, etc)? What other artists have you worked for? How different is working for a a singer as opposed to being in a band? what education do you have for music/keyboards? No prob...just sitting here otherwise.
It's all who you know basically...networking, networking, networking. Having enough talent only puts you on the field, not in the game.
I record my own songs for fun and have the occasional session, but my touring (and insecurity about my skills) keeps me from any regular studio work. Also, producers in Nashville generally have sets of musicians they prefer working with.
Before I moved to nashville, which is geographically convenient, I was gone more days than I was home. We worked it out to 191 days on the road in 2009. Now it's mostly Wednesday evening through Sunday morning and back home. On a normal day I roll out of bed, sing a few songs for soundcheck, work out or work on songs, pretty myself up, then rock out for 90 minutes...and usually have some fun after the show until we roll to the next city in the wee hours.
I haven't worked with anybody as big as Miranda except in Miranda-related events.. I got to back up Fogerty when he joined us onstage. I got to trade vocals with Carrie Underwood while standing in for ML at a rehearsal. I got to jam with Charlie Daniels once and he tossed me a solo. Paul Shaffer wanted me to do a solo on Honky Tonk Woman at a Letterman commercial break...but I didn't see his gesture...when he told me later all I could say was "wow" and froze up like a giddy little girl. We have Blake join us every now and then. Dierks, Paisley, Urban, whomever Miranda happens to be jamming a song with on a given night. I almost forgot: I played keys on Will Hoge's latest single "Song Nobody Will Hear"
She treats us like family. We are a band and we love being that way. She's said we should get our own name, but we never play as a group without her. I'm still the new guy after more than 6 years. She likes us being able to roll with situations on the fly and not clam up when shit goes wrong. Bands that don't really know each other are more susceptible to train wrecks without that trust. We've finished out playing unplanned songs, the wrong song we started but played anyways, capo's being in the wrong place so we transpose on the fly, jamming until the microphone can be fixed, or when she wants to talk...that sort of stuff.
I had piano lessons as a kid and a teenager but I didn't really fall in love with music until I could learn songs I loved on guitar. I had the odd guitar lesson here and there but nothing consistant. University of Texas' music program was very old school: Jazz or Classical only. But I took studio engineering classes at Austin Community College in the 90's. I ran a music studio and played with local bands for next to nothing for years until I got this gig.
What is your favorite Miranda song to perform live? Favorite song of hers that you don't perform in concert? In the current set Over You is my favorite because I get to play a prominant guitar part, sing a big harmony, and swell an organ note in and out with my feet.
I absolutely love Fine Tune but we never play it because the crowd gives us blank stares. It's not very country. I miss Crazy Ex Girlfriend too because the B3 part is wacky but she's been tired of that one for a while.
How emotional does Over You get? I imagine it's worse for her husband than her. She gets choked up and lets the crowd sing sometimes. It's about the same with House That Built Me...she didn't write it but she's internalized it. As far as Blake, that's not something I know or would ask about...but I can say he has been side of stage at plenty of shows when she sang it and spoke about it's significance beforehand.
Is Aden going to rock a mohawk tonight? Tell Miranda to come back to Montana soon! Aden cut off the mohawk a year ago. It was a great visual (and networking tool) but after 5 years it had pretty much run its course!
Will you actually being singing? Or will you be pulling a beyond at the inauguration? I sang. I was not as confidant about it as I was at rehearsals...not as clear an ear mix but there are a million possible reasons for that. Hopefully didn't muff any notes, I haven't heard it yet.
Did you mean Beyonce'? If you're going to pick on an entertainer for prioritizing entertainment over a live display of musicianship then put it in an envelope and mail it to madonna in the 80's...nothing has changed. Ill bet if Beyonce' thought she could relate more to her crowd by strumming an acoustic and singing with a bluegrass band around a single microphone she could pull it off. Just my impression of her. I didn't see the inauguration but I'm guessing it was enough of a formality rather than her regular crowd having a good time that she might have said "fuck it, let's run the vocal track tonight". Or maybe she had a cold. I don't know why I'm defending her, she just seems like she genuinely cares about music and has talent... and that's good enough for me.
Are all the performers there already? If so, do you get to walk around and maybe meet a random artist? Yes, Dress rehearsals started at 10amPST and the entire show is run mock live at the same pace.
Btw, in the very minuscule chance that you see him, say hi to Frank Ocean for me :) Absolutely, it's the most fun part. Last time I got to make a fool of myself with Neil Patrick Harris, Jamie Foxx, Usher, Gwennyth Paltrow, Beyonce', Polly Peret, said hi to the beibs. I invited NPH to go get "a sandwich"...I'm pretty sure he was very unamused but he was nice about the gag. Usher held my hand for about 10 seconds when the crowd pushed in...he looked back and presumably realized I wasn't his bodyguard and let go without any explanation. Jamie Foxx loves Miranda's music and recognized us from the performance...he approached US which was awesome! I hope this year is as exciting as the 53rd was!
Just watched you on the Grammy's. Good job. How much can you make a year as a touring musician? Not as much as I was making at Dell as a web programmer, but I wouldn't trade it for any job!
Haha! xD have you talked to taylor swift? First impression of her? I've met her a couple of times. She was really sweet and all smiles. Just a few seconds of smalltalk.
EDIT: Here's the pic: Link to
Wow, you're classically handsome. That's about the nicest thing a stranger's ever said to me.
Besides of course all the emails I used to get for Chris Klein like "You hav nice musles" and "I loved you in rollerball"
I'm just kidding, nobody ever said they loved him in rollerball.
Hey you know you just posted your whole Picasa album for them to see right…? It's a public photostream for your enjoyment!
Watching you as i type this. Good job. My question: what is Miranda's phone number? She's had to change her number so many times it's usually different by the one occasion a year I have to call or text her.
But sorry no...It doesn't say "Answer You Anything"!
How do you even get into the business like that? I always wonder how the people operating the sound at concerts got to that point. I asked him that myself and the answer was: Internships. His was through the Grammy Foundation i think.
Are you a session musician? I have a bunch of friends to do tours with big names as fill in musicians and they love it. The term "session musican" means staying in town and recording in studios to me, not filling in on the road. For the most part the nashville recording clique is seperate from the touring clique. I haven't tried to break in. I'm a bit insecure about my abilities in the studio...I lean more towards the showman side.
What did you do at dell? It changed a lot over 7 years. Most of that I was a contractor with no bennies coding in ASP and PHP, but it allowed me to work part time and run my music studio at night. At first I was contracted to do internal facing customer relationship sites for people who needed inside information but didnt work for dell. Later I was the junior developer for the Internet Partners Division...which was a specialized arm between small and large business for Dell partners who had few employees and large profits, and offered venture capital to potential companies like that. Then the big tech bust happened in 2000 and those companies mostly flopped like fish in a dried up lake. My entire division of about 300 dried up. First the sales force was redirected to the small and medium business divisions. Then one by one the marketing executives were either laid off or reassigned. Before the admin (that's Dell-ese for secretary) knew she was to be laid off she handed me my contract. She mentioned she had tweaked the employee database to give me a status somewhere inbetween a contractor and direct employee. Eventually the Director and everybody I worked for was gone and I was left alone in the empty cubicle farm for 20 yards in any direction with no standing orders or responsibilities. I realized it was some sort of glitch that might soon be fixed so I started wandering around looking for people that needed computer help...excel spreadsheets, mouse ball cleaning, pc load lettering, whatever. About a month later I was helping somebody and they realized I could edit web pages and shouted to their colleagues "WE HAVE A WEB RESOURCE!". Apparently they hadn't been able to update their web pages since the layoffs. I handed their admin my contract, which was somehow pre-funded by Intel for keeping their logo on the site, and my job continued for another 6 with flexible hours since I was effectively an independent contractor. My contracting company had lost every employee but me and gone under...they sold out to another arbitrary entity whom I kept faxing in my hours to and I kept getting paychecks. I did internal and external coding, photoshop work, copywriting, at my most prestigious point I managed the home page...then I took it a step further and re-did the menu system on the home page. It was kind of a disaster because I went around the usual dell content and made a javascript system that was only PC compatible, but was there really much business we lost from people on Mac's trying to buy Dell's? I knew it would be fixed soon enough and i knew I would never again get the opportunity to work on web pages that get millions of hits daily. I had no more ambition left for the tech industry. Right about that time Dell started gearing up for the second round of layoffs in 2006...maybe third if you count how many contractors they let go at any given time. I had been forced to go full time and forced to lead a team of programmers, which was cool but i had turned it down because as a perfectionist it made me want to get there early and leave late to make sure shit got done. It was a responsibility trap. I had to escape and my solo music career had fizzled in the last few years. So I told all my musician friends I was looking for a road gig...I'd even play country..but corporate money is a hard addiction to kick! Miranda wasn't the first audition to come up but it was the first one I'd leave Dell money for...
Are you involved with the songwriting process, or are you given sheet music to learn? Miranda's songwriting process? No. I do hole up in the back lounge and write songs while we're on the road but that's just my own thing. She gives us rough mixes as the albums are in progress so we can have the songs ready to play before the album is released. We often make nashville chord charts to get started and Keith always writes drum charts, but the songs are always quickly memorized. It's all done by listening. We use our own best judgement as a band on how to translate studio parts to a live performance by a 6 piece band. We're very against using tracks to have a slick production in the live show.
I was surprised about your answer that you made more doing Web Dev. Are you going to have to quit in a few years and get a 'real job'? Well, nobody can tour FOREVER! I hope to get involved in the songwriting scene so I can continue to pay my bills with music and not computer's just more fun. Although I do enjoy programming, I enjoy it much more when it's not for a company that I am not attached to..I like hobby programming like VST plugins and the Reaper SWS extensions i'm playing around with.
