Jerry Lee Blasts Modern Country Music
JERRY LEE LEWIS has blasted country music's current stars, insisting the modern Nashville, Tennessee scene all sound the same to him.
The GREAT BALLS OF FIRE hitmaker turned his back on rock `n' roll to become a country maverick in the 1960s and believes the likes of KENNY CHESNEY, FAITH HILL and KEITH URBAN could all learn a lot by going back to their roots.
Speaking to men's magazine Blender, he says, "It's crap... It all sounds alike to me. They're not doing any down the-road country music.
"I don't know what they're doing - I don't think they know what they're doin', either. I think it stopped being good when I left there (Nashville)."
