Believe it or not, there was a time, not that long ago, when it didn't take three or four mediocre Nashville songwriters to complete a song, good, bad or indifferent. That all began to change with the rise of a less talented class of singer-songwriters, many of whom revere the scene around the famous (and grossly overrated) Bluebird Cafe. So many country albums today carry subpar compositions boasting enough composer credits to confuse someone with a law firm. You know what they say about too many cooks? This proves it.
