Why do country songs ALWAYS refere to a Chevy when the song is talking about a truck?

Is there something I missed?

George Strait's country music festival was sponsored by Chevy a few years back.

I'm sure corporate sponsorship plays a large part.

Just kidding. A double syllabled word is easier to fit in loose cadence, and how many other american truck brands fit?

Because country songs are about sad people who are broke and can never seem to pull themselves out of financial problems that lead to relationship problems and problems with the law.

They can never get past this state of financial ruin because they have to spend every bloody dime trying to get that piece of crap Chevy truck to run.

Bull, at least in the videos. Reba's latest features a Chevy/GMC and its a song about perserverance and remembrance of a deceased spouse.

Martina McBride's God's Will features an Explorer and while being a sad song, it has an important message, that being the most fragile members of our society still have importance.

Both show middle-classed life.

I was wondering who would out themselves as an old timer by disagreeing with that.

Way to go, grandpa.

It's simple:

Good music = Good trucks

I think many country songs talk about trucks in general... probably because most "country" folks own at least one pickup.

Chevy.... Ford.... Dodge.... dont matter.
Link Posted: 5/25/2005 8:58:08 AM EDT
Because Ford owners are at work or in school, and probabaly make up a lesser part of the radio audience for a good part of the day. Same reason Jerry Springer and Rikki Lake are on in the afternoon when the welfare baby mamas are just getting up.

I don't see Toyota Tundras appealing much to the redneck audience... Style over substance, I guess!

They do make SUV's now, the Mountaineer. Whether or not you want to call that a truck depends on the owner I suppose..........
