Anyway, after failing at singing a Dierks Bently song on Rock Band I developed a theory as to why this is. Its the hat. Example:
Dierks Bently (never photographed in a hat)
Keith Urban: (hair to great to be contained by a hat)
Example for the opposition: Twangy artists and their accompanying hats:
Brooks and Dunn: (I maintain it is the guy in the hat that does most of the singing)
Toby Keith: (Dad, I am embarrassed to know that in your old age you have reverted to listening to him. I don't care that it is because he has funny music on Bob and Tom.) George Strait: (possibly the worst offender of them all)
That is just a few examples. And yes, this only includes the male singers. Don't get me started on Reba McEntire or Shania Twain. Hats or not.
Ok, start yelling at me.
ps- it should be noted that I had some co-workers help me with the names of most of these men. I relied on my experience selling CD's to fill in the rest.
