Let's Discuss: 5 Takeaways from the 2014 CMA Awards And What it Says About The State of Country Music

#1 Drinking, Trucks, Tight Jeans and One-Night Stands

That is all country songs are about these days. Of all of the performances, Carrie Underwood’s “Something in the Water” and The Band Perry’s cover of Glen Campbell’s “Gentle on My Mind” were some of the few that didn’t refer to getting drunk, riding in a truck, observing women in tight jeans or having one-night stands.

The redundant subject matter of current popular country was exemplified during the evening and it didn’t sound good. Hopefully it’s the wake-up call the genre needs to expand its lyrical horizons and move away from the current state of country music. A girl can dream.

Movie Review: 'The Drop' (2014)

In the seedy underworld of Brooklyn, Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) lives a rather mundane existence working at Cousin Marv’s, a dive bar that is run by his actual cousin (James Gandolfini) from whom it takes its name.

The neighborhood hangout also happens to be the drop spot for mob money and both Bob and Marv keep their heads down, as they work the arrangement. Bob is more accepting of it than his cousin, who seethes with frustration over being displaced. His glory days as a neighborhood heavy behind him, he still yearns for what was.

TV Rundown: Oct 26 - 31 | A Villain Returns Home on 'Arrow', Liz's Secret is Exposed on 'The Blacklist' & more!

Arrow | Malcolm Merlyn came to the rescue, saving the latest episode from disaster. The suave John Barrowman’s magnetic performance as Merlyn has brought the jolt of energy the series desperately needs. Under Merlyn’s influence Thea has drastically improved within the span of two episodes and her portrayer Willa Holland has found her groove as Oliver’s toughened up sister by another mister. The only downside to all this, is that Oliver continues to pale in comparison. 

A storyline that is definitely not working is Team Arrow’s revenge for Sara arc. She killed countless people whose families probably want their own share of retribution. It’s time to stop the cycle. It bears repeating, she lived by the arrow and she died by the arrow. Move it along. PS – enough with the flashbacks!
