Blake Shelton In Hot Water Again

What do you think of Blake Shelton's recent comments: “Nobody wants to listen to their grandpa’s music,” the singer stated, adding, “And I don’t care how many of these old farts around Nashville going, ‘My God, that ain’t country!’ Well that’s because you don’t buy records anymore, jacka–. The kids do, and they don’t want to buy the music you were buying.

87-year-old Ray Price had this reply to Shelton - It’s a shame that I have spend 63 years in this business trying to introduce music to a larger audience and to make it easier for the younger artists who are coming behind me. Every now and then some young artist will record a rock and roll type song , have a hit first time out with kids only. This is why you see stars come with a few hits only and then just fade away believing they are God’s answer to the world. This guy sounds like in his own mind that his head is so large no hat ever made will fit him. Stupidity Reigns Supreme!!!!!!! Ray Price (CHIEF “OLD FART” & JACKA–”) ” P.S. YOU SHOULD BE SO LUCKY AS US OLD-TIMERS. CHECK BACK IN 63 YEARS (THE YEAR 2075) AND LET US KNOW HOW YOUR NAME AND YOUR MUSIC WILL BE REMEMBERED.

Blake and Ray have kissed and made up, but Mr. Shelton has lost more than a few fans on this one.  He needs to respect what the  "Grandpa's" have done for country music and just hope one he last long enough to be one of those.  What's your slant on this?

I am of the opinion that Mr Sheldon is full of himself. He is not all that and a bag of chips!!!I am one fan he has lost because he has no respect for anyone. He is a self centered nobody in my book.
