Riff: Florida Georgia Line – “Cruise”

Nov 27, 2012

And I turned on those KC lights and drove all night/In this brand new Chevy with a lift kit

from Cruise lyrics by Florida Georgia Line

Sometime, probably before I was born, country music ceased to be. In its place, faux-Southern accents, product placement, and female objectification were all slapped atop the most mundane scraps from pop-rock recording session cutting room floors. This track epitomizes this modern ‘country’ ‘music’.
