MUSIC: Best of the Decade


Taylor Swift’s awards point to her statistically in 2009, but some argue Swift is too pop to be considered country.

Take a look at some of the duos and trios of country music — Sugarland, Brooks & Dunn, Montgomery Gentry, and Big & Rich — they’re the ones dominating the country charts.

The finest solo artists, like Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney say they won’t quit “because it’s just too fun.” Heck, Tim’s even been acting, recently.

But if those are the faces of country music in this decade.

If you ask me about best albums, however, nothing tops Brad Paisley’s “Playlist” and Sugarland’s “Love on the Inside.”
