Country Music's Biggest Scandals

12. Zac Brown Vs. Luke Bryan
Zac Brown had some strong opinions about Luke Bryan's 2013 single "That's My Kind of Night," calling it the "worst song I've ever heard." He singled out Bryan's song as part of a bigger problem concerning the country genre. 

“There’s not a lot of the country format that I really enjoy listening to,” he told Vancouver’s 93.7 JRfm. “If I hear one more tailgate in the moonlight, daisy duke song, I wanna throw up. There’s songs out there on the radio right now that make me ashamed to be even in the same format as some other artist.”

“I love Luke Bryan and he’s had some great songs,” Brown continued, “but this new song is the worst song I’ve ever heard. I see it being giant commercially, successful within what is called country music these days, but I also feel like that the people deserve something better than that.”

The two eventually made up at the 2013 CMAs, when Carrie Underwood singled them out in the crowd. "You both made great records and you're both millionaires," she ad-libbed to the tune of "Why Can't We Be Friends."
