It's terrible in every facet.
It's 100 percent marketing/statistic/profit driven.
It's literally three types of music in one
Diva, hip-hop, honky tonk.

There is a huge backlash audience wise. And not just from rednecks. Regular schmo music fans agree.

To make things worse CW are artists throw leftist politics into it. Are they trying to burn it to the ground?

Are they actually making money with this music? Or does it barely squeak by. Being everything to everyone at the sake of quality/respect is usually the last line of defense for a product.
