Story Behind the Song

Real country bands are being rejected for not being "pop" enough.

Lyrics

THIS AIN?T COUNTRY (?till we say so)- © 2003 Eli Stevens (pseud. of Steve Berger 650-697-1822)

This ain?t country, don?t want to hear no mandolin.
This ain?t country, a fiddle ain?t no violin.
Hey, this wasn?t cut on Music Row.
This ain?t country ?till we say so.

Program directors, we like to keep our playlist small.
Program directors don?t read the writing on the wall.
Faith and Shania have gone pop.
Now they?ve gone platinum, where will it stop?

We like it straight and narrow.
We like our singers with a drawl.
Sexy women, manly men,
Who show up for award shows in their overalls?

A sense of humor, a great big hat.
A peek of lingere, what?s wrong with that?
There?s not a lot of rules to make it in country-
The main thing is: you?ve gotta look and sound like me.

This ain?t country, don?t want to hear no mandolin.
No Hank or Dolly, and no Loretta Lynne.
Pack up your pedal steel and go,
?cause this ain?t country ?till we say so.
This ain?t country, ?till we say so.
