There's plenty wrong with modern Country music (no one's mentioned 5 televised award shows for one genre of music yet? lol) and I get the animosity towards Carrie Underwood because of American Idol, but "he / she done me wrong" has been a common theme in Country music from the beginning, so I'm not sure exactly sure why they're everything wrong with modern country.

PopeCharming and Lax31's arguments are accurate. The two biggest problems with contemporary country music are the generic "bro-country" (the joke used to be that when you play a country song backwards you get your dog back, your truck back and your wife back, but now it seems like every hit country song requires a pick-up truck, a body of water and women in tight blue jeans) and as Toby Keith (?) put it: "someone spilled some pop in my country".

That being said, contemporary country music (in particular the 90's boom) is an area with a few missing pieces. Garth Brooks has two songs inducted into the project. Clint Black doesn't have any. Alan Jackson (whose music I can't stand lol) has one song inducted and I (and South Park) would describe it as shamefully exploitative. All of these artists were insanely significant during their prime and all of them would have fit in during the genre's earlier decades. Garth and Clint, in particular, fit in well with the singer-songwriter tradition that dominated the genre from Hank Williams through George Strait. If the purpose of these genre votes is to vote in deserving and significant songs from genres that we, as voters, don't personally prefer, I think this vote is doing a good job of doing so.
